    * I received an advanced copy of this title from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review * This book is the perfect read for fans of non-fiction such as Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls. It gives short biographies of important sisters throughout history dating back to the 19th century and going to the present. There are role models in all fields, too, from sports to art to literature to activism and politics.

There are role models in all fields, too, from sports to art to literature to activism and politics. There were quite a few pairs that I had heard of already, but I particularly enjoyed the sisters I was less familiar with, because it was a change of pace from standard history books. I think the bios could have been fleshed out slightly more, but this is a good starter book. Overall, this was a nice quick read with lovely illustrations and the perfect gift for younger readers searching for female role models.

    The art is also spectacular, the prose compact yet clear, the choices for profiles is well planned, but the ebook presentation sadly lacking. I think that this would be marvelous and motivating in print as the sisters chosen from around the globe and in the past couple of centuries is inspired and inspiring.

Highlighting their special bond with stunning full-color illustrations. Influential women throughout history from Kamala & Maya, The Trung Sisters from Vietnam, Amelia & Muriel Earhart & so many more. My daughters & their cousins really loved this book. They loved the beautiful illustrations & the stories behind the sisters, many times not realizing that so many had such great bond with their sisters. This book celebrates sisterhood! “She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling even in the dark.” – Barbara Alpert With 3 young daughters, 2 of which are twins (they got busy with extracurriculars so had to have their baby dolls take their place for the photoshoot), I cannot emphasize what a special connection they have with each other. They fight everyday & love everyday. I hear them consoling each other, find little love letters they write to each other saying “let’s be BFFs again, I love you so much. I’m sorry.” It melts my heart everyday how truly lucky they are to have each other.

Having a sister is an important relationship.

The biographies in this book are arranged by sisters whose impact has touched lives well beyond their own families. Claribel and Etta Cone's eyes for art helped promote Matisse, Cezanne, and Picasso. Ida and Louisa Cook saved Jews during the Holocaust. Mary and Carrie Dann challenged the United States government for breaking a treaty with the Shoshone people. Spectacular Sisters has less exciting art work, but gives great information for slightly older readers.

    I was hoping for something a bit more with this book. The graphics really just didn't do it for me. I'm not sure if it is the digital format of the ARC or what, but it just looks so bland and jilted. The pictures of the sisters throughout are okay, at least they are in color, but the rest of the graphics are often very simple and black and white or a single color. The information itself is interesting, though the writing didn't wow me, and it highlights a diverse range of sisters all over the wo I was hoping for something a bit more with this book.

I think there are better alternatives out there to learn about these women, however, the style may appeal to some. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3.

    I received this book from Goodreads. I enjoyed reading it, reading on all those sisters around the world. It is not the type of book I usually would read but it was interesting. It did interested my daughter too.
