Book Review: Sisterhood Everlasting - Ann Brashares

Sisterhood Everlasting (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants): A Novel
Four friends
One sisterhood
Ten years later, the story continues

On the cusp of turning thirty, Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget are now living separate lives, out on their own. Yet despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness. 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.

4/5 stars (really liked it)
I laughed, I cried, I got peeved at the girls and I loved this book. I think it's a great follow up and wrap up to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Series. It had been a while since I read the first four books but I was able to catch up pretty quick. All the characters I loved from the series are there and all grown up. So glad Ann Brashares wrote this book.
