Brilliant! Family life and sibling rivalry follow two timelines. One present, one beginning just prior to baby sister joining the family. The past timeline pages have a sepia tone to help distinguish them from the present (white) pages. The road trip seat assignments are so on point. When my three boys were growing up, they loved taking trips with me and each boy having his own "row" in our family suburban. They also loved having their own walkmans to listen to books on tape and Adventures From Odyssey. The pet progression also brought back memories. We also had a snake in our house -- a ball python -- who needed to be fed live rodents and also escaped a time or two. Eeek! So many great moments in this book. I think this is my favorite from the author. Thank you for sharing your life in graphic novel form, Raina!

I have that book I bought it at wallmart I luv rainas books

I can see why Telgemeier's books are so popular! An enjoyable quick read for adults, reading it with kids might be a good way to connect and open conversations about living with siblings and life in general.

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 !
