its a good sequel

this is a great sequel to the sisterhood of the traveling pants. i like "Bee" better in this one. its really good and if you read the first one then you have to read this one.

Great book!

This was a really awesome book. I didn't like it as much as the first one though. I didn't find Tibby to be very interesting in this book or the last one. Briget was my favorite both times because I never know what is coming next with her. I really did enjoy the book though.

Wonderful pants!

This excellent sequel to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is as charming, sweet and brilliant as the first book. But, it's also more mature and deep and emotional, and we can only thank the author for taking the story a step further, transforming what was a little but honest story into one of the most engaging book series of this decade. One year after their first summer apart, Lena, Tibby, Carmen and Bee are about to begin a new summer, but each girl is still bearing a different scar from their past actions. Now, as the summer begins, we see the girls confronting their past fears, and well as also some unresolved issues with their mothers. The book explores the emotions of these girls in such an honest way, it's impossible not to feel a little related with all of them. The Second a deeper book, maybe a little serious, but also more satisfying, because we see our girls mature and face their joys and tragedies in such an admirable way, one can't help but get involved emotionally in their lives. We care about these characters, their fates, we want them to know the real life and the sadness that sometimes comes with it, but we also want them to come out victorious in each one of their battles. This is a book I recommend to daughters and mothers. It will help you understand each other more. It will work magic just as it did in the sisterhood's lives!

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood

I finished The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares yesterday. It is the sequel to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (yes, the movie based on this novel will be out June 1). It is considered Young Adult fiction and maybe I'm really intune with my inner teenager but I really identified with a lot of the themes in this novel. (Actually I think I would call it ChickLit for teens.) Like the first in this series, the four friends, Bridget, Carmen, Lena, and Tibby (short for Tabitha) are going to be separated for the summer. Bridget rediscovers her grandmother from Alabama and sets off to get to know her. Carmen is staying home with her single mother. Lena is also staying home, to work at the local Greek clothing store. And Tibby is going away to a college class in film making. Each friend has a rich summer, full of changes, and growing. There is heartbreak and redemption for each friend. Brashares is a really great writer. She turns simple prose in to poetry in places, pulling unexpectantly at heartstrings and bringing tears of remembrance to your eyes. The spark of new adolenscent love (and first heartbreak)...the pain of learning that your mother is a person too...the unexpected love of a grandparent...the pain of loosing a friend to death...Brashares writes it all with such amazing understanding of the crazy emotions teenagers go through. I can't recommend this series highly enough and I can't wait to read the next one in the series.


The Second Summer of the Sisterhood is an engaging, entertaining almost addictive novel that will appeal to young adults, as well as people who haven't seen young adulthood in a long time. I fall into the latter category and I must say, The Second Summer was a fun, delightful novel that I read in one sitting. You should probably read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants first because the stories from that novel continue on in this one. A note to parents--this novel is fairly clean--so if the younger crowd is interested, you should feel comfortable with them reading it. The novel focuses on mother (or mother-figure)-daughter relationships--the secrets mothers keep from the daughters and vice versa, the problems in those relationship, etc. The resolution of all these problems is all positive and believable. Enjoy this one.
