"NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLER
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.

About the author

Biography of Brashares, Ann

Author Ann Brashares grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland and graduated from the Sidwell Friends School in 1985. She met her husband while studying philosophy at Barnard College, which is part of Columbia University, in New York City. She worked as an editor in the hopes of saving money for graduate school, but she enjoyed her job so much that she continued to do it until she became a full-time author with her first novel, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Since then, she has written five more novels in the popular series; the latest one is entitled, Sisterhood Everlasting. She has also written as her first novel for adults: The Last Summer (of You and Me). In 2005, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was adapted into a movie. She currently lives with her husband and their children in New York.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-04-01)

Brashares's fifth "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" installment (after Forever in Blue) finds Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen separated and verging on turning 30. Finding it hard to keep in touch amid busy lives of varying success, the girls are thrilled when Tibby proposes a reunion on the Greek island of Santorini. Upon arrival, they are met with a stunning discovery that threatens to shatter the sisterhood and sends each girl down a different path as they grapple with grief, memory, and what it means to live a truly fulfilled life.

Verdict: Although this is strikingly different in tone from the young adult books in the series, Brashares expertly taps into the difficulties of carrying childhood friendship into the trials of adulthood. Original fans of the series will find it poignant; however, the adult transition may prove awkward for younger readers.

[Previous series titles were published by Delacorte Press in Random House's Young Readers division; this will be released as an adult title.-Ed.] - Mara Dabrishus, Ursuline Coll., Pepper Pike, OH
