About this item

Telgemeier's graphic memoir recounts her desire for a younger sister, who, once born, turns out not to be the warm, fuzzy bundle she had imagined. Instead she's cranky and moody. The sisters' differences are apparent from the beginning and years of bickering ensues, until a family road trip forces them to find a way to get along. A companion to the bestselling SMILE.
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 humor 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.
