The companion to Raina Telgemeier's #1 New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir, Smile .

Raina can't wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren't quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she's also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn't improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something doesn't seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.

Raina uses her signature humour and charm in both present-day narrative and perfectly placed flashbacks to tell the story of her relationship with her sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.

This book was super funny and talked a lot about life with siblings, which isn't always easy. It has a lot of pages, however, it is super easy to read because it is a comic book. 5/5 stars....I'm super excited to be reading the book PREVIOUS to it. (I know, I know, I skipped! But I didn't know it was the second book, in my defense.) Raina tells an actual story from her life, and I'm pretty sure my life never had that many adventures. Raina is an amazing author and her books
always make you feel the emotions the characters are feeling. I first borrowed it from a friend, but I never fully read it, so when I found it at a thrift store I begged my mom to get it. I'm so glad I did! It's based on a girl named Raina (the author) and her not-so-great bond with her sister. I'm not going to be a spoil-sport though.......so read. the. BOOK!!!!! ;)

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars!!! (there is literally no name for the number I just typed) LOL.

My new obsession, I love this series and the family dynamic of Raina and her family. There's plenty of family experiences to share and relate to. Just plain fun!
