The Chicken Sisters | KJ Dell'Antonia

I finally finished a physical book! I enjoyed this book, which loosely based on two sisters from Kansas who had a falling out and split their chicken restaurant into two competing restaurants. This grudge was perpetuated over generations and the book is centered around Mae and Amanda and a tv show called Food Wars.

It was a fun fairly light book and a good time. Just what I needed right now!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Sounds good! 3mo

Thank you!!
