Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares

Return to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants . . . ten years later

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: 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.
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.

First of all, I cannot believe I've waited this long to post this review.

Sisterhood Everlasting is an epic portrayal of relationships already woven together by years of adventure, hardship, and friendship that carried teen girls through their adolescence. Ann Brashares creates a novel that echoes the beauty of Tibby, Carmen, Bridget, and Lena, but also takes the next step by transforming into a mature work of fiction that appeals to the adults we have become.

I grew up reading the Sisterhood series, and absolutely adored it. This follow-up piece of art is the emotionally stunning companion that gives us a taste of our favourite girls, but also changes our lives in an epic interpretation of life.

I loved this book and Ann Brashares transmitted it perfectly. The writing was eloquent and the emotions ran deep and beautifully. I saw my dearest characters go through changes that are not only relevant but relate-able. 

This book was extraordinary and a necessity not only to those who have grown with the Sisterhood, but also anyone who enjoys moving narratives that ring true to life and bring out the best in all of us. This book completes me.

Changed forever--Cheers & Enjoy♥

  1. Aw glad to hear you liked it. I didn't though - I felt like the characters were WAY TOO different and the writing too. It didn't feel the same way.
