Little Sister is a book anyone with a sibling they feel in competition with should read. I just so happen to have three siblings, so I could relate in some aspects.
The first thing that hit me about this book was the main character, Al. Her tone is bitter and sarcastic, for good reason. At first we only hear about she's so out-shined by her sister, but later we see first-hand how she's constantly compared to her. She's realistically developed and relatable.
The issues this book deals with are well handled and explored. Aimee Said tackles issues like bullying and homophobia expertly and unflinchingly.
The plot was solid, with the traditional 'introduction, conflict, solution, conclusion" structure. The storyline was unique to books I've read before, and I enjoyed the social media references (like the facebook status and the end of every chapter).
Overall, a quick and engaging story of overcoming differences and accepting people as they are.
I give Little Sister a 4 out of 5.
