Andrea CoxTexasAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Adventure in Finland!November 12, 2013Andrea CoxTexasAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Have you ever been surprised by the contents of a book?
Recently, I experienced that very thing.
Having previously loved RobinJones Gunn's Clouds, I was eager to see what else she had written. When the first of her Sisterchicks books came up on my list of available books on Blogging for Books, I couldn't resist the temptation to try another of her novels.
The surprises began with the cover. Blue sky and snow, with a bright orange strip of foreign buildings . . . just the hint of adventure I needed to sneak Sisterchickson the Loose! up my ever-growing list of books to read. Plus, the cute little chick in the top left corner with the snazzy sunglasses made me giggle with joy. *Note: When I was browsing at the book store over the weekend, I noticed this book had a different cover than the copy I had. Don't let that stop you from taking on this adventure!
Upon opening the cover, I discovered the story was written in the first person. Quite startling, since the "norm" for fiction is currently third person writing. I've read a few first person fictions before, and they usually took me several chapters to get into the rhythm of them, if I ever did. Much to my delight, the story swiftly unfolded as if told by a dear friend. This negated the first person problems I'd had in the past. In fact, as I was reading, I felt as if I were reading the authors private, intimate thoughts on her own journey to Finland. I'm not sure how much of the tale was based on Ms. Gunn's personal experiences, but she sure painted an enjoyable tale with plenty of adventure, misunderstandings, hilariousness and sweetly tender moments.
Finally, I was surprised to discover a deep character arc that could easily apply to so many women's lives. (Men's, too, for that matter.) Many of us struggle with identity issues at some point or another in our lives. This book provides hope and a bit of guidance where our identities are concerned. It's nice to see such deep thoughts woven seamlessly into a whim of an adventure.
In Sisterchicks on the Loose!, Penny tells her best friend Sharon, "Pack your bags, girl! We're finally going to run away from home!" They take off for far away Finland in hopes of reuniting with the aunt Penny's always wanted to meet. Mishaps seem to appear from every direction, but they decide to trust God and let Him lead the way on this long-awaited journey. Both women have lessons to learn along the way, along with surprises to give and receive. The people they meet on the trip only add to the experience, enhancing the already enjoyable excursion across the globe. Will they miss home or wish they could travel indefinitely? After going on such an exciting trip, how can they ever go back to normal living? Make sure to pick up this Sisterchick novel if you have a bit of the wanderlust in you. It'll get you itching to board a planeâ€”but don't forget your carry-on!

LukieMilford, NHAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Cute ReadSeptember 2, 2013LukieMilford, NHAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Sisterchicks on the Loose! by Robin Jones Gunn reminds me so much of the relationship that I have with my best friend. Penny is willing to let her hair down in order to experience life and have a great time. Sharon is more like me, reserved and a home body.
When Penny thinks that her life might be coming to an end (because he mother died at a young age) she plans this trip to Finland in order to find her only living family - an aunt and few cousins. Little did she know that she would find a "real family".
This book is very cute and a nice light read. The characters are very likable, fun and well developed. I enjoyed the spiritualness that was written into the book. I would most definitely recommend this to all my readers.
Jved267Detroit, MIAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Don't miss out on this book!June 9, 2012Jved267Detroit, MIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Whenever I see the word "chick" in a book title, I usually head in the opposite direction since I am truly a tomboy. (The last book I read was a Western about a Ladies Shooting Club by Susan Davis.) From many women, I've heard that Robin Jones Gunn is a good author, so I figured that I would check out a book by her from the library, to see if I liked it (before I would consider buying it). I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
Sharon is the quiet shy homemaker & mother while Penny is the out-going, adventurous real estate agent. Despite many mishap and detours along the way, Penny & Sharon head to Finland for the vacation of a lifetime. Penny's only surviving family lives in Finland and she wants to connect with them as well as visit the country of her ancestors. Penny brings her best friend Sharon along for the incredible ride. Don't miss out on their fabulous adventure.
