"The Chicken Sisters" is a 2020 Reese's Book Club pick. "Three generations. Two chicken shacks. One recipe for disaster". For almost a century, a tiny town in Kansas has been home to the feud between two chicken shacks and their respective owning families, the Moores and the Pogociellos. Amanda Moore, a well-meaning, but harassed woman with ties to both families, calls in the TV reality show Food Wars in the hopes that once a winner is declared (and awarded the $100,000 prize) the tension will end. But the ensuing chaos and drama, along with uncovered family secrets, might make both families implode instead.
