Reviews
A January 2021 Country Living Front Porch Book Club Pick

"The Chicken Sistersby KJ Dell'Antonia is a delightful look at sibling relationships and the unbreakable and bonds of family."--Real Simple

"The Chicken Sisters is a pitch-perfect book with which to begin the New Year, when the spirit of starting anew and putting aside baggage (no matter how many centuries old it may be!), is exactly what we need. Well, that and a plate of fried chicken, of course." --Country Living

"If you prefer your family secrets served with a side of fried chicken, we highly recommend The Chicken Sisters...[a] funny, heartfelt book..."--Hello Giggles

"A charming first novel about family, regrets, and second chances. Dell'Antonia deftly deals with issues of mental illness, marriage troubles, and dreams deferred, all the while telling a funny satire of reality TV. An utter delight from start to finish."--Booklist (starred review)

"Mae and Amanda are spirited characters, and their foibles are told with care and humor. Recommended for Food Network and HGTV watchers, this first novel is plucky, heartwarming, and a welcome distraction from the news of the day."--Library Journal

"Be warned: you'll crave fried chicken throughout."--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"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

"Nobody knows the humor and pathos of complicated family relationships better than K.J. Dell'Antonia, which is why this story about sisters and fried chicken and reality TV is such a satisfying read. It's like the comfort-food of novels: warm, memorable, and wholly original. I loved it."--Laura Zigman, author of Separation Anxiety
