Waiting on Wednesday: Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares

Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
Release date: June 14, 2011
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.
I loved The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants when I was in high school. I read the first book in the series shortly after it came out, and got each of the following books as soon as they came out. Seriously, I had a research paper due the Monday after the third book came out, and the teacher who I was writing the paper for also loved the series, so I loaned it to her so my work would get done. As soon as I heard this one was coming out, I flipped out and tweeted about it, and got a lot of replies to that particular tweet. I think it'll be really interesting to see where the sisterhood has gone since we last see them. I only hope this one doesn't disappoint.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  2. I'm scared for this one! I really enjoyed the Sisterhood books, and this one will either be great, or terrible... :/

    Plus, I'm sad that the cover doesn't look like the rest of the series. I totally get why not, but still... :(
