#24: Sisterchicks Down Under

Sisterchick n.: a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you are being a brat. That is the definition given on the back of the book.

I decided to read Sisterchicks Down Under for 2 reasons...1. Erin recommended this series (yes, there are more) and 2. Based on the title the book appeared to be set in my new favorite place, Australia. My major emotional reaction to the book was ridiculous. Although, I did manage to read this book in one day while I was at school "teaching" so at least I didn't waste too much time. Let me give you a brief summary...

Kathleen and her husband move to New Zealand for 3 months and Kath (that's what she's called for short) is sad because she misses her life in Southern California but after 2 weeks she decides to leave the apartment and go to a coffee shop down the road where lo and behold she meets her sisterchick soulmate Jill and they bond instantly. Now, the next 3 months are full of adventure, travel, comical dialogue and every silly thing the author could ever think of happening to these 2 middle aged women. That's pretty much it. Needless to say, I was slightly bored and probably won't be reading another Sisterchicks book anytime soon.

anne i'm sorry you couldn't find better books about australia. there must be some out there. will keep my eyes and ears peeled.
Excellent, love it!
