    Being surrounded by strong women and growing up with four younger sisters, this book was poignant and moving in so many ways. Daisy Buchanan’s anecdotes deeply resonated with me, with big sister syndrome making myself and her “an infuriatingly excellent bullshitter”, as well as being “infused with bossy benevolence”. Daisy tell’s hilarious stories from family car journeys, tragic haircuts, to a house full of girls going through puberty, depicting the accurate tales of growing up with sisters, hi Being surrounded by strong women and growing up with four younger sisters, this book was poignant and moving in so many ways. Daisy Buchanan’s anecdotes deeply resonated with me, with big sister syndrome making myself and her “an infuriatingly excellent bullshitter”, as well as being “infused with bossy benevolence”. Daisy tell’s hilarious stories from family car journeys, tragic haircuts, to a house full of girls going through puberty, depicting the accurate tales of growing up with sisters, highlighting that “we will never run out of material.” With me and my four sisters being at completely different stages of our lives currently, it rings true that it is “difficult to be friends with my sisters because of our differences”, however, I hope that once we are all on similar paths as adults it will be “the differences that captivate me” just like they did with Daisy. Daisy moved me to tears with this quote that perfectly encapsulates what it is to be a sister; “Even though there have been times when I thought I hated them, periods when I’ve failed to to understand them, and conversations when I have violently disagreed with them, I adore them with a love that’s bigger than logic.” However, you don’t have to have sisters to appreciate this book, with Buchanan noting friends that have become sisters and celebrating female relationships. The Sisterhood is a painfully honest and heart-warming love letter to every woman in Daisy’s life, and reading it reminded me how to be a better sister, daughter and friend to all the amazing women in mine.

    Funny, immensely relatable, thought provoking, honest and beautifully expressive.

    I was about 17 when my sister asked me if I would be a surrogate for her. Not right now. This was a hypothetical situation. My sister knew then (and she still knows) that I have no desire to give birth – it looks painful and messy and I have heard that sometimes you poop. Carla is my sister and I would do anything for her and so I agreed. Fortunately for me my sister didn’t need to call on me and my uterus and gave birth to my gorgeous niece in 2015.

However, this story was mentioned because if you have sisters you know what you would do for them. Daisy Buchanan just gets it. The Sisterhood is a celebration of the sisters we have in life. Buchanan mentions friends that become sisters and she talks in depth about real life siblings. She celebrates each of them for their individuality, she shares stories of their shared past and she shows that sometimes being a sister can be hard. What is wonderful about this collection of essays is that Daisy Buchanan doesn’t hide behind her words. She shows aspects of her own personality that aren’t always the most desirable qualities but she needs to do that  to help you understand how much you can love your sister but want to thump them in the arm until they squeal too. It is an amazing celebration of sisterhood that can be found within these pages. Read it, love it, and then buy it for your sister for Christmas. The Sisterhood – A Love Letter to the Women Who Have Shaped Me by Daisy Buchanan is available now.

    Painfully honest, laugh-out-loud funny and also very moving in places, this entertaining account of growing up as the eldest of six sisters is more than just a love letter to (a quite posh and very eccentric) family. It's really about a much wider sisterhood, about women, our support for each other but also and the ways in which we treat each other badly. And how we sometimes act even more unkindly towards ourselves.

    Hilarious, heartwarming and inspiring. I don’t have sisters, but this book made me think differently about the relationships with my friends, colleagues, girlfriend and brother. A must read for anyone who feels a little lost, or ever feels tensions in their friendships and family relationships. Thanks Daisy for sharing your honest stories.

    Heart-warming and hilarious. I laughed and I cried!!! Loved Daisy's honesty and the narrative helped me to reflect on my relationships and friendships. It's reassuring to know that we're not alone. With each turning page, I grew fonder of the book. Thank you for sharing Daisy! Heart-warming and hilarious. I laughed and I cried!!!

    This book is a great read for any woman with sisters or female friends. It helped me reflect on those relationships and realise how valuable they are, even when we don’t always get along perfectly. It was funny, heartwarming and exactly what I needed right now.

    I really loved reading this book. It was so honest, funny, and quite moving. Being the eldest of three sisters, there were a few things I could relate to as I was reading it. This book is a great guide about women and how to advise each other in certain situations.

    I don't have sisters, but a lot of this was very familiar to me from the stories of my mother and aunts. A comforting, funny book, like having a good gossip with a friend.
