I don’t think I read the fourth book in this series prior to reading Sisterhood Everlasting, but it didn’t seem to matter. I wasn’t lost at all picking up the story of Tibby, Lena, Bridget and Carmen where this book begins. It is nice to have a wrap up to this story and see where the author would take them.
Since I didn’t read tre preceding book, I’m not sure where it left of but Sisterhood Everlasting starts off with the four girls somewhat estranged, not for any particular reason other than as adults life got busy and none of them lived in the same city. They all know that they miss each other but no one is really wiling to make the first move until they all receive a letter from Tibby. She has organized a reunion at Lena’s grandparents’ house in Greece.
I would say about half of the time I was reading Sisterhood Everlasting I was mad at Brashares. She took quite an unexpected turn in this book that I was not happy with at all. Though I have to give her credit because by the end I was content with the way she brought it all together. If you are a fan of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series you will not want to miss Sisterhood Everlasting!
On a side note, it was kind of funny to picture Blake Lively as Bridget while her current film The Savages is in theaters. Here character in The Savages looks like it would be quite a departure from Bridget in the Sisterhood books!
