Book Review: Sisters

Lately, it has seemed like everything I'm reading is focused on the relationship between sisters. Must just be a coincidental theme, since I didn't set out to find books about the sister relationship (my own sister relationship has been a rather conflicted journey). This follow-up book to Raina Telgemeier's Smile, is a cute little story about sibling rivalry and the bond sisters share.

Using the framework of a cross-country trip, the story of Raina's relationship with her younger sister unfolds with colorful drawings and predictable emotion. Once again, Telgemeier has captured the pre-teen perspective clearly and presents it with delightful illustrations. I'm not a big fan of graphic books, but can see how these books might appeal to adolescents.
