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.
Sisters is a book about Raina who can’t wait to be a big sister after playing by herself for several years she’s ready to have someone to play with and share things with but her new baby sister is not what she was expecting. Her name is Amara who is stubborn and prefers to play by herself. As they get older they have their ups and downs but nothing improves. Later they have a baby brother and their parents aren’t getting along so, they have to learn how to get along and set the example. I like this book because as it is telling about the present it also flashes back to their memories.I would rate this book a 4.5 because I wish this could tell a little more about their brother too. Overall, I would definitely recommend this wonderful book.
