Plot (Goodreads Summary):
Three weeks. Two sisters. One car. A True Story. Raina can’t wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren’t quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she’s also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn’t improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, when something doesn’t seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all. Raina uses her signature humor and charm in both present-day narrative and perfectly placed flashbacks to tell the story of her relationship with her sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.
I like Raina and her graphic novels because she is the author of “Smile”, my first ever book and graphic novel. My sister let me borrow it and I loved it. I still do. Though this book didn’t really speak to me as that one did. I didn’t understand the ending and if it is part of series. What is going to happen with her parents? Where is that going? I know that this is a true story but I didn’t any closure. Either way it was a great book and I definitely recommend it.
The actual graphic part of this novel is amazing. I love the art and it was simple but beautiful.
“Ghosts” is another book she wrote and I read that today right before reading “Sisters”.
My favorite part of this book is how I can relate to it. I have a sister, too. The entire relationship between these two girls/sisters is the exact relationship I have with my sister. Except for the fact that instead being six years apart, we are 13 months.
Hey dudes! School has become routine now and I don’t like it. I usually have news for this note but I don’t.
Love you all ♡
