“Sisters” is a true story of Raina and her sister. It is a graphic form of the true story of Raina and her sister. It also is the companion to the graphic memoir Smile, which I still have to read. Sisters reminded me of the relationship I share with my sister, but we will not go there. I will talk about this graphic memoir which is all about siblings – rivalry and love.
Raina had always wanted a sister and she got one as well and that is when things started to go haywire. Amara is born and she is cute but she is also very cranky and prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn’t hold on too well over the years, but once a baby brother enters the picture they know they have to stick it out together, as they are sisters for a reason.
I loved the simplicity of this book. It is the kind of book which every person who has a sibling will relate to. It is a fast read for sure given it is in graphic form, but it is also the kind of book that will make you want to reach out a lot more to your siblings.
“Sisters” is the perfect book to be given to a child who is just going through the phase of accepting a sibling and understanding what it means to be one to another. The illustrations are sweet and overwhelming and go perfectly with the story. A book to not miss out on for sure.
