Sisters First is a lovely, lyrical ode to the magic of sisterhood by beloved former first daughters and bestselling authors Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush.

A young girl’s wish is granted when a new sister arrives. While the baby can’t do much, over time the big and little siblings become inseparable, playing and dancing, imagining and laughing. By each other’s sides, they are smarter, kinder, and braver than they ever thought they could be. And they are forever sisters first.

This exquisite celebration of the bond between sisters is inspired by the spirited childhood of Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush, authors of the #1 New York Times bestseller Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life.

Jenna Bush Hager is a co-host of NBC’s Today Show and an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, and she coauthored the #1 New York Times bestseller Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life with her twin sister, as well as the children’s books Our Great Big Backyard and Read All About It! with her mother, former First Lady Laura Bush. Jenna lives in New York.

Barbara Pierce Bush is the board chair and cofounder of Global Health Corps, an organization that has mobilized more than one thousand young leaders who take an innovative approach to solving some of the world’s biggest global health challenges. She is the coauthor of the #1 New York Times bestseller Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life with her twin sister, and the picture book Sisters Firstis her debut work for children. Barbara is currently pursuing her Masters at Harvard University.
