Readers should not be surprised to find scratched pages, stickers pasted or drawings scribbled on the pages of this book: a younger sister passed by…and left a trail of destruction in her wake.
Bites, broken dolls and some potato chips, in a “classic drama” between brothers (in this case, sisters) that marks the debut of Joana Estrela in Planeta Tangerina.

“In this patchwork of childhood memories, Joana Estrela captures with remarkable balance the relationship between an older and a younger sister. Using epistolary typology, the text illustrates the tensions and inevitable approximations between the two children, from the eldest’s point of view.” Andreia Brites, Blimunda magazine, July 2016
