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:

    I really enjoyed this book. One of the only reasons I bought it was because I have a little aister, and I thought it would be great if we got a book like this. The book, Sisters, perfectly describes our relationship, (it’s like the book was written based on out lives), and the joke about Nevada being the Silver state cracked me up. It was sort if ironic because I lived there most if my life, and my sister and I would make fun of how desert-y it was. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has a sister. Very enjoyable!!!

    Could you survive 3 weeks with your sister in one car? Two sisters Raina and Amara are going from California to colorado to visit their cousins,which they have not seen in a long time. This book was amazing because it was about two sisters and their life. 3 weeks, two sisters, one car.Can they ever survive?

    This was a AWESOME book because the older sister always wanted a little sister. Then one day her parents told her there going to be having a little girl. Her mom finally had her and she was so excited to hold her but when she got older they started to fight and fight some more. One day they got a snake and they went on a road trip with him. He got lose in the car and died. The little sister said to her you let him go then they had a big fight. Do you think they will ever stop fighting? Read the book to find out!
