Definitely portrays what almost every sibling relationship looks like. I have three younger siblings, so everything in this book made sense to me. Raina did a wonderful job writing this book and it was interesting to learn about her experience. For me and every girl out there with siblings, this is a must-read.

This story is based on the author’s life.

That was sooooo good!!I have a little sister too.she can be annoying.If u r reading this comment u should read this book!!I like how the author wrote this book about her childhood.Since this book is about Raina Telgemeier when she was little and she had a sister who had a snake so did Raina's sister actually have a pet snake? If so I think I am going to freak out!I don't like snakes like Raina.My rating is 4.5 for me!!

Sisters is about the relationship between two siblings and how they cope with one another. The novel tells us about the two sisters, Raina and Amara. Like most sisters, they don’t get along that well. It's the sequel to Raina Telgemeier's previous novel, Smile. This book is very touching and funny, and deals with real life sibling rivalry. I can personally relate to this because I have a step sister. She can be a real pain, but I love her anyway because she is my sister. I recommend this book to anyone with siblings, and give it a 5/5. @Gummibee11 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Sisters. If you’ve got one or two or three, you can agree they’re brats but we love them in the long end anyways don’t we. Sisters shows you the realistic side of having sisters and if you don’t have any this will tell you the whole story! It starts when you either asked for a sister and got your wish but regret it or you didn’t and you still aren’t happy with them. But obviously after all we love them since you know we kinda have to. Raina Telgemeier shows the whole story in perfect comics and drawings that are amusing and fan to read a look at. These books are great for smaller children as well! I suggest going and getting this book right now as it’s such a relatable book in many ways and was enjoyable to read. I can tell you that if your read this book you'd want to keep it forever and be in love with it! @smallstories of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This book, Sisters, is an amazing book to read if you enjoyed the book Smile! It includes lots of real life situations, including family issues. Some of the important issues that are covered in this book are siblings fighting, losing your job, and overall family problems. I would definitely recommend this book if you have a sister, because how much you can relate to it. Sisters also represents an important message which is, family above all else. It shows that no matter what happens, or how much you argue, your family will always be there for you. I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars, mainly because o the story line. I personally did not find the actual story to be that interesting, but besides that, Sisters is a great book! Rating 4/5

A very sweet story with cute cartoon drawings (it's a graphic novel) that tell the story of two sisters' relationship and how they grow together, based on the author's real childhood. I read it in an hour and enjoyed it very much!

In this exciting, funny, and fun filled book you get to see two sisters who like every pair of sisters are arguing, yelling, and not really getting along. But also they can be nice to each other, understanding, and caring. I loved this book !
