Brain Pickings Loves the Sweet Ending in Whatever Happened to My Sister?
A review of Whatever Happened to My Sister? was posted to Brain Pickings on January 15 for the reading pleasure of the blog's more than five million readers. The article praised the fresh take on adolescent changes the picture book provides by focusing on a younger sibling's perspective. The review sums up the Nobrow Press/Flying Eye Books title by calling it, "An assuring illustrated antidote to the disorientation of being a teenager's younger sibling." But even though the book takes a sad turn for the main character as "a sense of abandonment sets in as she realizes that underneath her frustration and indignation is the simple, sincere feeling of missing her sister terribly," the reviewer was delighted that "[the] ending offer[s] sweet assurance that despite the universe of change, a sister's love is an abiding constant."
