the Satellite Sisters: You’re the Best: A Celebration of Friendship

by Rachel Baker on October 21, 2015

I’d never heard of the Satellite Sisters until I was offered the opportunity to review their book, You’re the Best, on sale October 27th, 2015. If you’ve never had the pleasure of meeting them, I’d suggest brewing a nice cup of coffee, sit down with your device in your favorite comfy chair, go to: and be prepared for incredible podcasts on every topic under the sun. You will very quickly find yourself wanting to define yourself as a Satellite Sister and wondering if you could pull all the women in your life together to create something as awesome.

The book, You’re the Best: A Celebration of Friendship, is probably best described as a quaint little book peppered with the intelligence and humor found in their national radio show. The book truly reminds me of one of the many small little books of friendship my mother had on the bookshelf in our den when I was a child in the 70s. The book is a fabulous little thing that celebrates the women in your life, biological sisters or not, who always know exactly what you need from them and the difference between when to apply the “someone needed to say it” piece of wisdom maybe you were avoiding and just listening and letting you talk through the enormous circular path you might need to find clarity. You’re the Best: A Celebration of Friendship is exactly about those wonderfully momumental women in your life. There are vingette essays and Laugh Out Loud lists including birthday party expectations, packing lists for your girls’ weekends, and even some of the best (and probably worst) dating advice ever received; all organized under headings for the many facets of our lives – life, love, family, play and change. This tiny little book is packed chockful of moments we’ve all shared with our own versions of the best women in the world – its an enormous tribute to sisterhood and every single thing that means to each and every one of us.

If you are looking for a special gift for your chosen sisters (what I call my satellite sisters), I highly recommend this wonderful book. At a little over 153 pages, this is a perfect book for light weekend reading with time spent smiling and laughing at their own shared memories with you. The book goes on sale October 27th, and can be found here. I highly recommend buying the book in hardcover so you (and your sisters) can enjoy the great cover art.
