Paulette last edited Sep 02, The story of Daniels history with Lucy, Constance, Sofia was moving and intriguing. It took a long time for the two to reunite in the present almost to the point where I gave up hope but it finally happened and it paid off really well but just when it was getting exciting we're left in the lurch. The promised sequel has been put on hold because of lacklustre sales.
June 14, Publisher: Random Buzzers From 1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares comes the welcome return of the characters whose friendship became a touchstone for a generation. Now Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget have grown up, starting their lives on their own.
And though the jeans they shared are long gone, the sisterhood is everlasting. Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends.
Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever—but in ways that none of them could ever have expected. As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one.
There have been different points of view on this book.
Others were eager to pick up where the story left off, and some people just stumbled upon it. This book makes your emotions run rampant. You will cry, you will get angry, you will want to be sucked into the story and both throw it against the wall.
Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen are some of the most filling characters in stories.
There are those series that everybody reads, everybody has seen the movie, and they are just familiar to you. In this novel, the Septembers do deal with issues that are adult, and it should be suited as a nice crossover book for many teens to start reading in the adult genre.
Yes, there are some adult situations. There is dealing with money, balancing work with your personal life and respecting those boundaries Carmenwondering if the path that you left behind is the one that you should have taken, grief, and the sad reality of growing apart from the people that you grew up with.
In the early years after college, the Septembers were inseparable. Slowly and surely, they drifted apart. Bee moved to California; Lena started teaching classes in Providence; Carmen remained in New York to work as an actress; and Tibby moved halfway across the world.
Almost ten years later, they are about to turn thirty. They wonder whether the choices that they made were the right ones, and what happened to their sisters. They have almost given up hope of being sisters again, when Tibby sends them a letter.
This letter — including a plane ticket to Greece — tells them to go to Greece at a certain time. It will be like their trip to Greece in the fourth book. They will reunite, and have one last ritual of the Pants. Carmen, Lena, and Bee travel to Greece with the plans to meet Tibby there.
Their experience in Greece will change the rest of their lives and change the Sisterhood forever. When I was reading it the other day, my sister walked in on me sobbing as I read because the feelings that this book gave me were so potent. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was one of the first young adult books that I ever read and perhaps the most honest.
While not being graphic or raunchy, it goes through all the troubles and triumphs of growing up and becoming an adult. Between sex and love, friendship and prejudice, this book still gives you a feel-good feeling that makes you feel grateful for the friends that you have.
This book represented for me, growing up and becoming who I am. I turned to the Sisterhood when I felt like I had no other place to go and I needed to know what to do. It truly strengthens the bonds of friendship and it takes you through every hoop that you might face. This book still retained the elements of the Sisterhood that made me fall in love with it so completely but it will change you.
