This book is about a little girl named Melissa and her family adopts a little girl from another country. It's an ok story I just wish it was longer.

This picture book tells about Melissa and her newly adopted sibling, Kika, who barely speak the same language but must now become sisters. The story alternates between the first-person viewpoints of each girl, making it easy for readers to relate to both characters and their journey on becoming a family. Through each new experience, Kika and Melissa discover that sisterhood can be fun, challenging, and sometimes unpredictable – but always rewarding.

It doesn't read very well and pretty choppy although it still might reflect some adoptive siblings feelings and relationship.
