Book #99 Read in 2014
Sisters by Raina Telgemeier (YA)
This graphic novel is a sequel to Smile, also a graphic novel. I really liked Smile but Sisters left me a bit disappointed. In Sisters, Raina and her sister and brother and mother are driving cross-country to visit family. Raina and her sister never get along so neither are really looking forward to being trapped in a moving vehicle together for a week. There is sparring back and forth. This book had potential to be a bit more meaty (mother and father having marital problems) but that potential was never really addressed and the ending felt abrupt...it left me wanting more. That being said, I think a middle school reader would be ok with it. Cute read.
