    Amazing book - Must read!!

    Meet the Sisterchicks: Quiet mother, Sharon & Former Wild child mother, Penny. These moms have been friends for 20 years & their friendship is about to take an interesting leap. Penny makes a plan for the moms to take a "post-children" trip, to Finland. But when it comes down to actually taking the trip Sharon is nervous, Finally she gains up the courage & off the Sisterchicks go on a crazy adventure. Here they meet interesting people & learn more about each other that they never knew.


    I really like this book, I find it hard to put down. I really like the fact that Penny's name is Penny Lane, so wherever she goes people are making Beatles jokes. I would recommend this book to any woman, any age, who has a zest for life!




    *I received this book free from Multnomah Publishing in exchange for my review.*

    Waste of Time

    Sisterchicks on the Loose by Robin Jones Gunn has got to be the worst book of 2011 for me. Yes it is "fluffy" but also just plain boring. Most of my fellow readers in "Friendship Sisters Bookclub" thought it was an "ok" story. I just did not appreciate the story and thought quite frankly that it was slow and boring.

    Funny, refreshing and encouraging.

    Mu daughter has grown up with Robin Jones Gunn and although I bought all the books that she has read by her through the years, I had never actually read one. My daughter who is now 22 read this book and then encouraged me to read it. I did and was delighted. I think we enjoyed this book so much because my daughter, sister and myself are so much like the sister chicks. We enjoy having an adventure and finding out what happens along the way. No matter if you are 20 or 50 - you will be encouraged and inspired by reading about these wild girls and their adventures.

    A good work-very funny at times

    In 1982 in a church nursery in Chinook Springs, Washington, best friends Penny and Sharon watch a vicious horde of children including seven that belonged to the two moms. Weary from the mental and physical stress of these youthful activists, Penny and Sharon make a deal that when their magnificent seven graduates they celebrate in Finland. However, a few years later the deal appears dead when Penny and her brood move to California.<P> In 1993, Penny sends Sharon a ticket that will send the dynamic duo from San Francisco to London to Helsinki. The supermoms are running away from home now that graduation has occurred. With two West Coast sisterchicklet baby boomers invading Europe, will the English and the Finns survive and will American diplomacy (Clinton style) be needed to calm the waters and snow that the daring duo dive into as they go from one brash adventure into another. <P> This is a fun tale that feels like Lucy and Ethel taking Europe in the 1990s, yet each one remembers why they were and still are best friends while renewing their faith in God. The key to the tale is the message that plenty of life remains to enjoy for the over forty crowd without Robin Jones Gunn preaching to the choir. Readers, especially middle age, will appreciate these super SISTERCHICKS ON THE LOOSE.<P> Harriet Klausner
