The bond between sisters is unique. A sister might drive you up the wall at times but she knows you better than most people ever will – your strengths and your weaknesses. That knowledge can result in a wealth of love and support, but sometimes it also tips into resentment and jealousy. All sisters are different and these ten books portray a range of different sisterly relationships – do you recognise yourself in any of these? Are there some that ring true – or false – to you?
