Those popular pants are back for another summer in Ann Brashares's second friendship-affirming book!
The four girls who starred in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants -- Tibby, Bee, Lena, and Carmen -- find themselves wrapped up in a summer of unexpected surprises. After Bee finds out that five years' worth of Grandma's letters to her have been kept secret, she leaves for Alabama on a mission to connect with her past, which also means dealing with her mom's death. Meanwhile, Tibby's decided to attend a filmmaking workshop in Virginia (she's getting a perspective on Bailey's death), and Carmen's at home, screwing up her mom's dating life and then putting it back together. And as for Lena, well, she's busy getting over Kostos -- that is, until he shows up for a surprise visit. But despite whatever happens to this foursome, the Pants find their way into the hands of one of them at just the right time.
As uplifting as a cool breeze on a hot day, Brashares's second summer is even better than the first. The four heroines are learning about themselves and strengthening their bond as never before, and this time around, we get welcome insight into their relationship with the older women in their lives. This second installment is sure to have Sisterhood fans cheering. Shana Taylor
