Written and art by Raina Telgemeier
Raina Telgemeier’s talent for distilling the middle school perspective into engaging and fun stories is fully on display in this trio of best-sellers. Smile is the memoir of young Raina’s major dental surgery, her journey through puberty, the discovery of boys, and learning the lessons that only come with growing up. Sisters continues the memoirist’s take on family relationships, as it details the birth of Raina’s younger sister, Amara, and the complex relationship that only siblings can truly understand. Finally, Ghosts is the fictional story of two sisters who move to a new town, only to find that their new home has a secret. This story delves into how family gives us our strength, and our courage in even the scariest times.
