From the introduction:
I owe you for that night at that dive bar on our road trip. I should not line dance under the influence, and I think we both know that now.
I owe you for letting me borrow that really expensive evening clutch with the feathers. I had no idea puppies liked feathers.
I owe you for that really poor financial advice I gave to you. It was loud on the subway, but I thought I heard that guy in the suit say, "Buy Enron."
I owe you for Brad. Let's not talk about him ever again.
You're smart. You're funny. You text just the right amount. You're the one person who tells my about the thing in my teeth without sounding just a little bit superior.
You're the best.
You're the Best is a thank-you note to female friends, the women we call when the best things in our lives happen—or the worst. Written by two generations of Satellite Sisters, this beautifully packaged hardcover book explores how we rely on our friends to get us up, get us going, get us through, and, most importantly, get us laughing. It makes a superb gift for friends, sisters, mothers, daughters, and granddaughters.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
You're the Best is a collection of short essays. Some are funny (ok, most are funny - it's the Satellite Sisters!), some are poignant, but ALL of them are important, relateable, and a joyful read. The book covers friendships (of course), but also family, careers, relationships, birthdays, and more. We excerpted a chapter - Packing List for a Girls Weekend - read it and you'll see why I love the Satellite Sisters, and why I think this book is an important read - for yourself, and for the women in your life. Perhaps my favorite part was the paragraph on finding a friend in the lap lane. But you will dig into this book and have a different favorite part. Maybe it is the funny dialogue chats at the end of most chapters, or the Birthday Parties (which cracked me up). Never fear - you'll all find something to love and share in this book. It's important. Highly recommended.
A sister doesn’t necessarily have to be a blood relative to be an extra special person in your life. YOU’RE THE BEST: A Celebration of Friendship by the Satellite Sisters explains this concept in such amazing ways. This is a wonderful book to share with those ‘sisters’ who touch your life and make it so much richer for just being in it. In this heartwarming book, the Satellite Sisters (five real sisters) discuss the importance of our sisters and friends (women and men) who are there for us. These are those friends that are there during the good times, but especially touch our lives when we’re down and need them the most. This collection of essays touches on the various ‘sisters’ we have in our lives. These are people we have known forever and those we’ve become close at various times in our lives, as well as those we’ve bonded with across the miles without ever having actually met. This delightful book will have you laughing out loud as you compare the stories to your own experiences. It will tug on your heartstrings as you fondly remember those sisters you’ve lost touch with over the years, as well as those who are no longer with us. YOU’RE THE BEST is a charming book that can be enjoyed by all ages. It touches on bad advice from good friends and funseekers vs funsuckers among so much more. It’s a humorous and entertaining look at love, life, family, play and change. Don’t be surprised if half way through the book (or sooner) you’re reaching for the phone to connect with your Satellite Sister(s). This is a superb way to celebrate those special people in our lives that help us in so many ways even when they don’t realize they are.
