The Almost Sisters
The Almost Sisters: A Novel | Joshilyn Jackson
With empathy, grace, humor, and piercing insight, the author of gods in Alabama pens a powerful, emotionally resonant novel of the South that confronts the truth about privilege, family, and the distinctions between perception and reality---the stories we tell ourselves about our origins and who we really are.
Superheroes have always been Leia Birch Briggs weakness. One tequila-soaked night at a comics convention, the usually level-headed graphic novelist is swept off her barstool by a handsome and anonymous Batman.
It turns out the caped crusader has left her with more than just a nice, fuzzy memory. Shes having a baby boyan unexpected but not unhappy development in the thirty-eight year-olds life. But before Leia can break the news of her impending single-motherhood (including the fact that her baby is biracial) to her conventional, Southern family, her step-sister Rachels marriage implodes. Worse, she learns her beloved ninety-year-old grandmother, Birchie, is losing her mind, and shes been hiding her dementia with the help of Wattie, her best friend since girlhood.
Leia returns to Alabama to put her grandmothers affairs in order, clean out the big Victorian that has been in the Birch family for generations, and tell her family that shes pregnant. Yet just when Leia thinks shes got it all under control, she learns that illness is not the only thing Birchies been hiding. Tucked in the attic is a dangerous secret with roots that reach all the way back to the Civil War. Its exposure threatens the familys freedom and future, and it will change everything about how Leia sees herself and her sister, her son and his missing father, and the world she thinks she knows.

I‘m really enjoying this so far, but I have to point out I feel like this cover, while pretty, is a terrible match for the book. The main character is a highly successful comic book artist, with all the geekiness you‘d expect to come with that. This cover doesn‘t reflect that at all.

Are there any book covers that you feel misrepresent their books?

IndoorDame Totally agree about this cover! I really liked this book, but I can‘t reconcile them at all! I actually really like the cover too and when I scroll through my audible bookshelf I always get excited about this until I finally remember that I‘ve already read it. 20h
tracey38 I find it so annoying when a cover doesn't reflect the storyline at all. I know I have read a couple books where this has happened but it's been awhile and I can't remember what they were. 17h
Hooked_on_books I read a book recently wherein the cover had absolutely nothing to do with the story. And I didn‘t love the book, so that didn‘t help, either. 14h

My #WeeklyForecast.

I hope to finish my current read, which is my Owl Post book, read The Hollywood Book Club, which is an ARC from LibraryThing‘s Early Reviewers, and get a good start on one of the other two pictured.

The tagged book is my current audiobook. I‘m sure I‘ll finish it and probably start another.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

LibrarianRyan Yeahhh 3d
Rachel_Anne789 The Hollywood Bookclub looks interesting! 3d
Daisey I like how you showed your Owl Post book without giving it away. I may need to do something similar for next week as I hope to get to my Cover to Cover group book soon. 3d

I really enjoyed this multi dimensional story my first by this author. I loved the main character and the elements do her graphic novel in the book but also the relationship between her and her grandmother (I‘m a sucker for cross generational friendships). Some of the themes were a little too obvious but it was still a really enjoyable read. D I shall look for more by this author !

lynneamch This was SO good. Also, themes of overt and covert racism handled well. Would be good for @Eggs #SoulSeptember #Sisters challenge. I've appreciated Joshilyn Jackson since I first listened to 3mo

This was my first Joshilyn Jackson book, but I don‘t think it will be my last. This book handles tough issues with sensitivity and even some humor. It‘s an important story that is very well-written. There‘s a lot happening with all the secrets that are uncovered. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

This was between a pick and a so-so for me. At times the conservative southern politics in this bothered me too much & it was read by the author (which I always love) but she slipped in and out of a deep southern accent in a way that struck me as unintentional & distracting. When I did manage to stay engrossed in the story the characters were drawn well & realistically, the dialogue was funny, & it was interesting to hear a dark story told lightly

IndoorDame Also I love this cover but it‘s not really reflective of the story... 10mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐✨
Great book. The Almost Sisters is a mix of family, southern history, love, and racial injustice with some "nerd alert" humor thrown in. It didn't get a full five stars because I almost felt like it was too long but, at the same time, it was missing something. Definitely worth reading.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I was expecting something cheesy about family and how love conquers all. And this book did have a lot to say on family, but it also talked about stereotypes, racism, and how complicated and messy relationships are.

Wow I absolutely loved this book! Don‘t let this generic looking cover fool you. The main character is a lovable nerd who brings humor to this engaging story. It‘s about the intricacies of family relationships, secrets, the undertone of racism that‘s still present today, and taking care of elderly loved ones. It was smart, and sassy, and poignant. This was my first time reading one of Ms. Jackson‘s books, and won‘t be my last. Highly recommend!

Really enjoyed this one-it's sweet, but a little snarky, sentimental, but not too much. It's my first Joshilyn Jackson & I'm sure it won't be my last. Loved the vivid way she brought the characters & small southern town to life & her skillful unfolding of the story & secrets. Great summer read that sweeps you away, but hits on tough issues. Paired with cool & creamy No-Bake Lemon Icebox Pie for my book tour review. Link to full review & recipe👇🏻

GlassAsDiamonds A pie my oven-less kitchen can handle!!!! (So, clearly, I needed to make this and its currently cooling in the freezer because I‘m impatient but.... a question if you wouldn‘t mind. Having never made or heard of ice box pie before: if it‘s only meant to be refrigerated for 8hrs, what do you do with it after 8hrs? Surely it doesn‘t keep outside of the fridge? Or does it?) 1y
DebinHawaii @GlassAsDiamonds The freezer works! This was my first making of icebox pie too. I think it means that that is the optimal time to chill & serve it. I have kept my leftovers in the freezer since I made it--covered tightly--and it's been fine. I just let the pieces sit out for several minutes to thaw before eating them. OK, who am I trying to kid--I try to do that and end up eating it frozen because I can't wait! 🤣😋 (edited) 1y
