Sisters by Raina Telgemeier
(GRAPHIX, 2014, 208 pages)
Sisters is the follow-up to Smile and explores Raina’s love-hate relationship with her sister. Flashbacks are prominent throughout the story and evident by sepia-colored pages. It follows 13-year old Raina, and her sister, brother, and mom on a road trip from California to Colorado for a family reunion. Raina just wants to listen to her music through headphones, while her sister wants to annoy her. Later they realize that their parents haven’t been getting along after their father takes a plane to the reunion instead of riding with them. This story wasn’t quite as upbeat as Smile, but I still enjoyed it.
