Smile By Raina Telgemeier

I absolutely loved this book. It’s about the author’s real life. It’s about when Raina was in her friend’s car and her friend’s mom was dropping her of. when they got to her house, her friend wanted to race her to the house. so both of them started to run. while they were running, Raina was holding on to her friends hoodie. her friend slipped away and Raina triped. And then she fell and lost her two front teeth. I love this book.

You Asked, We Answered: Sisters

October 5th, 2015 by

On October 2, Kidsmomo reader Sophia asked us:

What kind of story is Sisters?

Well, Sophia, you’ve asked the right website! Intense typing immediately occurred when we saw your message:


We love Pusheen! This image doctored by Kidsmomo.



Sisters is a graphic novel (kind of like a comic book) written and illustrated by Raina Telgemeier, who also wrote and illustrated Smile and Drama. Both Smile and Sisters are autobiographical — meaning, the story is about Raina’s own life.

Sisters is a really funny and sweet account of Raina taking a road trip from California to Colorado with her mom, her younger sister Amara, and their baby brother. But it’s not all fun and games in the car. You might have guessed that from the hilarious cover illustration!

In the book, there are also flashbacks to when Raina was still an only child (and really wanted a little sister) and to when Amara was a toddler.

This book is perfect if you like stories in any of these categories:

  • Illustrated
  • A quick read
  • Will make you laugh
  • Cross-country hijinks
  • If you relate to family bickering

Not convinced? Check out reviews for Sisters submitted by other readers just like you — the book has an almost perfect 5-star record! ★★★★★

You can read a 16-page excerpt on the official website, and here’s a peek at one of the flashback pages:
