I recently started reading Ann Brashares’s Sisterhood Everlasting (Random House, 2011), a ten-years-later installment of the popular YA Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series (Sisterhood is shelved in the grown-up section at my library). The story picks up with the girls (women) pushing thirty, successful in life and love (for the most part) but wistful for their teenage closeness. Everyone is beyond thrilled when Tibby, who lives in Australia, organizes a reunion vacay in Santorini.
I just got to the part where Carmen, Lena, and Bridget arrive in Greece. I was not prepared for what happens next. And then the book was recalled to the library.
Has anyone else read it? Is it worth trying to check out again? Even if I’m not in the mood for a tear-jerker? No spoilers, if possible. (I know, the book’s not new, but still…)
