elena - I’m an only child but I have heaps of cousins to make up for it. I love that cover of Ballet Shoes! I watched a bit of the film with Emma Watson. also I totally know about having Lena, Tibby, Carmen and Bridget resonate. Literary-wise I think my favourite siblings are the Weasleys and the Starks.
