It's:

a) 3:00 in the morning

b) the night before you start a new job

c) the day the absolutely best thing ever happened to you

d) the day the absolutely worst thing ever happened to you

e) all of the above

Who are you going to call? Your sister, of course!

Ask any woman who has a sister and she'll tell you that neither girlfriends nor husband--much as she adores them--can take the place of her sister. Who else has the same family history from the female perspective? Who else shares the same values and expectations, shaped since babyhood? Who else knows what's racing around in her head almost before she herself does? No one but her sister.

In I'm the Pretty One, You're the Smart One, author Lorraine Bodger captures the many nuances of this unique and irreplaceable relationship. From the greatest delights (wardrobe sharing!) to the pettiest annoyances (will she ever get out of that bathroom?), this book captures the sisters experience in all its variety, and celebrates All Things Sisters in a way that honors, supports, and enriches this important bond.

I'm the Pretty One, You're the Smart One explores the sisterly ins and outs of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood with wit, insight, humor, and loving attention. It rejoices in the intimacy shared by sisters--and that's what makes it the perfect gift from sister to sister. With beautiful original watercolor artwork, this deliciously touching hardcover gift book hits all the emotional (and often hilarious) highs and lows of sisterhood.
