Sisterhood Everlasting Book Review

I recently revisited my four favorite friends this past couple weeks when I read Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares. It had been 7 years since I last traveled through the lives of Tibby, Carmen, Lena, and Bridget wearing a magical pair of pants and it was 7 years too long. The latest and final installment of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series came out in 2011, but I just now found out about it. It follows the four girls ten years after they last lost the magical pants and there lives have drastically changed.

My expectations for this book were nowhere close to what I received. I loved the book up until about page 60 when Tibby pissed me off. (I don't want to give spoilers.) I set it down for a few days, then picked it back up, falling back in love around page 130. This book was a perfect read for where I am in my life right now. I'm being forced to move on from the life I know into something much more uncomfortable and uncertain, while desperately holding onto the past.

However, I could never tell if I was turning pages of excitement or because I simply just wanted to know how the girls lives turned out. My emotions were played with a lot in this book, but I would recommend it to any Traveling Pants fans.
