    Instant New York Times Best Seller

    A Reese's Book Club Pick

    "A charming, hilarious, feel-good story about the kind of bonds and rivalries only sisters can share. Also, a great present for your sister for the holidays!!" (Reese Witherspoon)

    Three generations. Two chicken shacks. One recipe for disaster.

    In tiny Merinac, Kansas, Chicken Mimi's and Chicken Frannie's have spent a century vying to serve up the best fried chicken in the state - and the legendary feud between their respective owners, the Moores and the Pogociellos, has lasted just as long. No one feels the impact more than 35-year-old widow Amanda Moore, who grew up working for her mom at Mimi's before scandalously marrying Frank Pogociello and changing sides to work at Frannie's. Tired of being caught in the middle, Amanda sends an SOS to Food Wars, the reality TV restaurant competition that promises $100,000 to the winner. But in doing so, she launches both families out of the frying pan and directly into the fire....

    The last thing Brooklyn-based organizational guru Mae Moore, Amanda's sister, wants is to go home to Kansas. But when her career implodes, helping the fading Mimi's look good on Food Wars becomes Mae's best chance to reclaim the limelight - even if doing so pits her against Amanda and Frannie's. Yet when family secrets become public knowledge, the sisters must choose: Will they fight with each other, or for their heritage?

    Commentaires

    “Dell’Antonia writes convincingly and sympathetically about complicated family relationships, giving Mae and Amanda each relatable flaws. The Food Wars scenes are a fun peek behind the curtain of the reality TV world, and the small-town warmth of Merinac is comfortingly quirky. A charming and satisfying story about family bonds that will make meat eaters everywhere crave fried chicken.” (Kirkus Reviews)

    Headache

    This was 10 hours of sisters fighting and scheming. It became hard to like any of the main characters. And to be honest... I thought it could have ended about three times before it did.

    not worth it

    I hate books that switch from one character to another chapter by chapter. I find it distracting and feel like it is lazy writing. Mae's children were annoying. the story was impossible to follow. I really hated it

    Amanda is the best!

    my favorite character was Amanda. I understood all of how she felt, and so many aspects of her are things I feel and experience.

    Although the whole book could have been solved by family communicating, sometimes this kinda stuff happens. Amanda is one of those more timid people like me that, when riled up, does literally everything she normally wouldn't even think of and jump to conclusions. I love all her Chicken art stories, and actually feel inspired to perhaps add a chicken to my next drawing. so cute.

    I loved the book so much I went to go buy it from the market. such a good book.

    Captivating and Wholesome

    This book was captivating from beginning to end. All families have secrets with cobwebs. We all have sibling troubled times. This novel brought it all lovingly together. The narrators were wonderful. This is the story of sisters and mothers who love fiercely. I loved this book of love and family issues. It is truly a winner!

    I just never liked either sister, sorry. very predictable, lacked real humor, warmth, or enduring qualities.

    Chicken sisters review

    The story was trite and predictable. I won’t spend my time on this author again.

    Family feud and Reality TV

    Entertaining if overly long story about competing chicken restaurants originally run by sisters in a tiny Kansas town. When the Food Network comes to set up a competition,
    the expected hell breaks loose.

    Someone said this seems like a first draft, and I agree, but it is fun, and narration is particularly good. Cassandra Campbell does many voices, and Xe Sand’s distinctive voice makes Mae tolerable and later, sympathetic.

    Hoarding is handled in a sympathetic way.

    Listened to audible book

    I found it had to follow the people in listening and often lost track of who was saving or doing what. If the different voices were more distinctive it would have helped me. Maybe it was a story better read from a book or Kindle. Since it was book club selection I expected more.
