I cannot wait to tell my students that Raina Telgemeier is back with another book.
As with Smile and Drama, this graphic novel captures a time in the author’s life in thoughtful way. Mom and kids set out on a cross-country trip during which Raina examines her relationship with her sister, Amara. Cleverly drawn flashback scenes show a real family’s growing pains. Kids will identify with both Raina and Amara as they try to get along with each other and the extended family.
