Summary
Raina cannot wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things are not quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she is also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship does not improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something does not 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
Summary
In a semi-autobiographical graphic novel, Raina's disappointing bond with a cranky, independent younger sister is further challenged by the arrival of a baby brother and an estrangement in their parents' marriage
