Sisters might raid your closet and steal your favorite pair of shoes, but at the end of the day, they’re always there for you. And in YA, there are plenty of sisters who show their highs and lows. From the triplets of Fennbirn fighting for the crown one day and saving another’s life the next, to sisters coming together to survive a revolution, it’s clear that this bond transcends fiction. Even if, you know, it’s because of a curse.
If you’re feeling the love, pick up one of the below books starring sisters!
This slow-burn fantasy will become your next obsession, as three sisters positioned to fight to the death end up weaving a web of intrigue, blood, and sacrifices.
In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born—three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.
But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.
Scarlett will do anything for her sister—in fact, that’s the premise of the first book. And even when Tella seems too independent for her own good, you bet she does everything for their mutual benefit. Things get magical, twisted, and make for a series you won’t forget!
Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over.
But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.
Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic. Read More.
