Blurb: PRIYANKA, ISOBEL, CAITRIONA, ESHE & SHAYNE are five diverse 20-something best friends out to conquer their dreams. But even the best laid plans can go awry when life kicks open a door and Mr. Right or a slew of Mr. Right-Now strut on through.

Follow their trials and triumphs as they face relationship dramas, job issues, and adjust to life in the adult world -- where nothing is easy and the real challenges begin as each member of the Sisterhood is ripped in a different direction - literally. Will they keep the Sisterhood together, or drift further apart?

Review: For anyone to believes their true soul mate is not a partner, but a friend, this book is for you. Reminiscent of the friendship goals of Sex and the City, this book follows the lives of five millennial best friends, each carving their own path in this modern world. But unlike SATC, and something that I absolutely loved from the start, is the belief that having a man in your life is not a requirement to happiness or success. A theme that was heavily pushed in the SATC series, the entire show was focused around each members almost fanatical pursuit of a mate. This book shows that this is not only unnecessary, but challenges all the stereotypes to this way of thinking.

It is a perfect blend of some of our favorite works that promote closeness in friendships and girl power, such as Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, with a touch of the sass of Gossip Girl. This book is empowering, hilarious, charming, and down right a joy to read.

Each character follows their own course, careers and pursuits, but always turn back to their connection and friendship with the others. The incorporation of text message images and the like gives a modern day feel to the book, and you will find yourself laughing out loud at the relatable dialogue between the characters.

Demornay has done her research, making each character accurate to their sexuality, their career and more. This is not just the casual mention and flippant remark about who these women are...this is well versed, thought provoking and all out girl power personified.

Their career choices are just as diverse as their sexuality, with an MMA fighter, fashion guru, model, TV producer and Harvard grad with a penchant for tequila. No matter your own path or preference, I promise you will relate to at least one, if not all of these amazing women.

One thing I loved most about the book was the diversity and inclusivity. Straight, gay, bisexual, gender fluid...there are no limits to Demornay's characters, and her beautiful portrayal of them. In a time when the literary world is crying for such depictions, this author hit the mark perfectly.

But the best part? The tag!

Chase dreams, not boys!
