Info about the book: This book takes up 10 years later, after the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series ends.
Review: Lena, Carmen, Bridget, and Tibby are almost 30-year-olds now. Tibby lives in Australia with Brian. She has fallen out of touch with the group, but she invites them to reunite in Santorini. Lena is a teacher and artist in Providence, while Carmen is a TV actress, and Bridget lives with Eric in San Fran, while still feeling restless. At first, I was reluctant to read this book, because I heard one of the characters dies and I couldn’t bear to find out who, but once I started reading, I felt at home with these familiar characters and couldn’t stop reading.
Genre: This book is released as adult fiction, however, readers of the Pants series who have grown up with the series will be interested. Deals with some heavier and more adult issues.
Song to Read By: Several chapters have epigraphs from songs by The Shins. Check out “Gone for Good”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCe3e1FU6c8
