Sisterchicks on the Loose
by Robin Jones Gunn

Published in 2003. 274 pages.

This Christan chick lit novel is the pick for August's meeting of one of my book clubs. It was light and quick. I found it immeasurably more readable than Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral. While I doubt I'll read any of the others in the Sisterchick series, if you are looking for a "feel good" book about friendship, this might be the book for you.

P.S. I do think the cover is a bit strange.



  1. Alison, I don't know what it is, but I don't enjoy most chick lit. I'll probably pass on this one. I appreciate once in awhile reading a review that doesn't compel me to add the book to my TBR list, because, golly gee whiz, it's getting incredibly long! So I thank you for that. :D

  2. I have to agree that the cover is weird. Does it have anything to do with the story itself? And why are the colors so bright?

  3. Dear alisonwonderland:
    I greatly appreciate your positive review of "Sisterchicks on the Loose." Actually this is my first chick lit ever! But I simply could not put it down--although this is really not the most leisurely time for me. (I'm right in the middle of apt. shopping in another township about 50 miles away to be closer to my new job starting on 10/15 and requiring some intense training preparation.) But when I came across this unexpectedly at a bookstore (while looking for something else 2 days ago), I found the bookcover so intriguing that I just had to read the prologue; and the rest is history. It turned out that this book could not have "appeared" in my life at a better time for several personal reasons....

    Anyway, y'all simply must read through the story to be able to really appreciate the meaning of "weird" cover. Well, for one thing, the cover really served its purpose as it did succeed in getting me finally "step into" the amazing wonderland of sisterchicks! I highly recommend it and definitely plan to order a whole bunch of this lit. for each one of the precious sisterchicks in my life. Rest assured; it IS even better than chocolate itself in some ways. So try it; you'll see. Kiitos, Robin! And "Bon voyage!" to y'all! ^^

    ps) Hi, alisonland! I'm also Leo and love reading (great lit.); and "The Princess Bride" is definitely one of my favorite movies! Have you heard of Steve Curtis Chapman's song, "I Will Be Here"? (I'd nominate this as the theme song for the book. What do you think?) ^^
