    Elv, Claire, and Meg are the Story Sisters, and each has a fate she must meet alone. One on a country road, one in the streets of Paris, and one in the corridors of her own imagination. At once a coming-of-age tale, a family saga, and a love story of erotic longing, The Story Sisters sifts through the miraculous and the mundane as the girls become women and their choices haunt them, change them, and finally redeem them--BOT website.

      Raina Telgemeier is back with Sisters, the companion to the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel Smile. Meet the Sisters Club: twelve-year-old Alex, aspiring actress and born drama queen; eight-year-old Joey, homework lover and pioneer wannabe; and smack in the middle, ten-year-old Stevie, the glue that holds them together -- through dinner disasters, disputes over stolen lucky sweaters, and Alex’s going gaga over her leading man. Playfully weaving Stevie’s narration with Alex’s scripts.

      A small new book covers the big history of Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Patricia Montemurri, a retired Detroit Free Press reporter, recently published the page.   Siblings in classic children’s books are more likely to be friends than rivals, but the pacing in those old books doesn’t always grab today’s kids. My tween is an avid reader, but she just can’t find the sisterhood and girl power in the old-fashioned sentences of "Little Women.".

    The story of the sisters learning to make their own way, but stay close to their family as well is a great self help for today's young girls to learn growing up. This was surprising in that it didn't have as much of the story of the girls growing years as I thought it would but it had a good lesson to learn of survival; strength, hard work /5().   Sisters - Ebook written by Raina Telgemeier.
