The companion to Raina Telgemeier's #1 New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir, Smile. 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.

They are sisters, after all. Raina uses her signature humour 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.… (more)

I love how true her voice is, capturing all the different parts of family dynamics - the good parts and the ugly stuff we do to each other and never really forget. ( )

The drawings were somehow even better and the cheesiness and humor are perfect.
This is relatable to all the siblings out there. ( )

Enjoy! ( )

This book encapsulates perfectly the relationship between sisters: the awkward I-hate-you-but-not-really, the weird little things that make or break your relationship, and the strange feuding that can happen. Even more than that, this book perfectly explores what parental and family issues look like through the lenses of a younger child. It reminds me of the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary, where the problems are orbiting the main story, never directly in the spotlight, but assuredly there and present. Overall, just a great book and one that I would be willing to read again, even as an adult. ( )
