Help with passato prossimo

I am having a hard time nailing the passato prossimo. Which of the following would be correct? (Or neither...) Io e mia sorella ci abbiamo scritto. or Io e mia sorella ci siamo scritte.

In addition to using Duolingo I am using a Basic Italian workbook that is unfortunately lacking in explanation (and accuracy).
Thanks!

"Ci siamo scritte" is the correct form. It's a reciprocal verb (we write each other), which takes "essere" since it uses the reflexive forms. Reflexive and reciprocal verbs always use "essere."

It's "ci siamo scritte" because the verb is reflexive (scriversi).
