Sisters by Raina Telgemeier


The book Sisters by Raina Telgemeier is about two sisters and their similarities and differences.  Raina couldn’t wait to be a big sister but when Arma was born she was a little disappointed and things weren't quite how she thought they  would be. Arma was always cranky and crying when she was little and she never wanted to  play with Raina. She always wanted to play alone. Then later on they had a baby brother and something was going on with their parents, so they realized they had to figure out a way to get along.  They start to get along but someone makes a smart comment and they get into an argument. Will  they realize  they have  to get along?

Personally,  I like the book Sisters because I like how they don’t like each other then they make their way back to being friends. My favorite part of the book is when they go on a trip and they have to get along because their parents aren’t getting along, so they know they have to get along.  It’s my favorite part of the book because I love how they realize hey are truly sisters. I really liked the book because I have two sisters and I didn’t know how to get along with them until I read this book. It is a wonderful book.

The book I will review for the blog is Sisters by Raina Telgemeier. Have you ever thought about what it would be like if you had a sister? Well Sisters is one of the books that Raina Telgemeier wrote about her childhood and in the book Raina and her little sister, Amara  fight on a family road trip and everyone is there, their mom, their little brother but not their dad. In the book you learn why the sisters fight so much. Read the book to find out more.

I like this book because I can relate to it. I don’t have any sisters but I always fight with my cousin, and we always make up. Well, almost always.

Review by BACON is best 🐷


Sisters by Raina Telgemeier is a very good book. It is about a girl named Raina and she wanted a sister. When she finally got one, as they got older, all they did was argue. Their mom wanted to visit their cousins because they had not seen them in ten years. Raina and her sister Amara live in Colorado and her cousins live in California. So for them to visit, they had to spend a week in the car traveling and they argued the whole time.
This relates to to me because when I am with my brother he always is annoying but I still love him because he is my brother. In the winter I go snowboarding with my mom and my grandparents and we take my brother sledding. The drive is three hours so he is a pain. This is how the book relates to me. This book also is almost like the book Smile, which is also by Raina Telgemeier.

Review by Horse Rider0



My book is Sisters, by Raina Telgemeier. The main character is Raina and she can’t wait to be a big sister! But then her sister Amara is born. Amara is cute, but she's also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Now Amara is born, things aren't quite how she expected them to be. Want to learn more? Read the book and find out what happens next!


What I liked about the book is that it is about sisters and I have two. I think it is a good book to read. Me and one of my sisters read it all the time. If I were to rate it, I would give it a 10. But you should read it and see for yourself.

Sisters by Raina Telgemeier is a graphic novel and 2017 RICBA nominee. Sisters tells the story of Raina and Amara, her little sister. They are on a road trip from California to Colorado to visit their extended family.  Although the story takes place during the road trip, there are flashbacks to when Amara was first born and their early years together. The two girls have very different personalities and have trouble getting along with each other. All the things Raina thought they would do as sisters, dress up, dolls, etc. don't work out. Then they are stuck on a very long car ride together. Will they find a way to be loving sisters to each other?

Like SmileSisters is autobiographical in that it relays real happenings from the author/illustrator's own life story. It is funny and also touching. Telgemeier does a great job in examining the relationship between Amara and Raina. If you have a sister, and like graphic novels, this is the book for you!
