This graphic novel is extremely popular in my daughter's 4th grade world, so I thought I'd check it out.
It looks and reads like a book-length comic strip, which is one of the reasons it's so appealing to kids. And, I'm delighted to say, it's clean :)
The book follows real-life sisters Raina and Amara as they embark on a family road trip. The sisters are about 14 and 9, and most kids will relate to their emotions as they worry about fitting in, and how a person can love their siblings but also want to kill them most of the time.
Rated PG for some mature themes like wondering if Mom and Dad are getting divorced.
