Summary
In this companion to Telgemeier's "Smile" the graphic artist writes about her relationship with her younger sister, Amara, using a summer cross-country trip as narrative scaffolding as she examines the contrast between her childhood wish for a sister and life with a sibling she often can't fathom although Amara seems to have uncanny insight into her. "You ever feel like you just don't fit in?" Raina asks Amara at a family gathering full of contemptuous teenage cousins. "All the time, " Amara replies. "The difference between you and me is, I don't care." Like "Smile" it's an alternately poignant and laugh-out-loud funny account of pre-adolescence whose episodes range from small crimes (Raina lying to Amara so she doesn't have to share her art supplies) to acute crises (Amara's pet snake Mango on the loose in the family's VW Microbus)
