Publisher Comments:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTELLER

Conversations between sisters reveal a deep and constant tug between two dynamics—an impulse toward closeness and an impulse toward competition. It takes just a word from your sister to start you laughing, or to summon up a past you both share. But it also takes just a word to send you into an emotional tailspin. For many women, a sister is both a devoted friend and a fierce rival.

Wise and witty, You Were Always Mom’s Favorite! will leave you with a profound new understanding of the unique and precious sister bond, as well as provide practical advice that will open up communication, dispel tensions, and make a vital connection even stronger, deeper, and more resilient.

Synopsis:

What she did for women and men in "You Just Don't Understand," and mothers and daughters in "You're Wearing THAT?, New York Times"-bestselling author Tannen now does for sisters in a groundbreaking book that explores this powerful and perplexing relationship.
