Editorial Reviews Review

Ann Brashares has created a wonderful, heartfelt series for teens (and adults) around a pair of pants. In her breakout bestseller, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Brashares introduced readers to four girls, Lena, Bridget, Carmen, and Tibby, and to the magical pair of jeans that fit them all perfectly, and inspired them to live their young lives to the fullest. Forever in Blue, the fourth and final novel in the series, promises a dazzling finale--one "last glorious summer" for the four girls, and their fans. See a note from author Ann Brashares, below.--Daphne Durham

A Note from Ann Brashares

December 1, 2006

Dear Amazon Reader,

Well, here we are together again. If you are getting ready to read the fourth book, Forever in Blue, that means we've probably spent some time together. I hope you've enjoyed it. I know I have.

We don't know each other and we may never get to meet, but I feel like we are connected nonetheless. We've spent time with four fictional girls together. We've puzzled over their lives and their choices. We've rooted for them and sometimes felt annoyed by them. We've shared some hopes for them, I think, and in the process for ourselves.

So thank you for being part of the sisterhood with me. I have really appreciated your company along the way.

Happy reading,


Spend Time with the Sisterhood

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up-Forever in Blue (Delacorte, 2007), Ann Brashares' fourth excursion into the world of the Traveling Pants, is crisp and unexpectedly poignant at times, dealing with issues relevant to teens. Tibby has a pregnancy scare and pushes her long-time boyfriend away. Lena makes a definite break with Kostas and spreads her wings both metaphorically and physically with a fellow art student. Bridget contemplates a fling with a married professor and works on drawing her estranged family into her life. Carmen attends theater camp and lands a plum role. The girls have only phone calls, e-mails, and the Traveling Pants to tie them together, until Lena's sister loses the Pants in Greece. The crisis brings them all together. They finally realize that the Pants are not really important. The narration is performed splendidly by Angela Goethals, who perfectly voices Tibby's numbness, Lena's newfound confidence, Bridget's confusion, and Carmen's despondence. Sure to be wildly popular in both school and public libraries, but as both Tibby and Lena take the bold step of losing their virginity (without graphic descriptions), this installment is appropriate for more mature listeners.–Charli Osborne, Oxford Public Library, Oxford, MI

If you are not familiar with the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, this is the last book in the series where four real close friends travel far away from each other but share one thing in common. They can all fit into these pants that look wonderful on each of them. This last book takes place after their first year of college and all of them face the fact that they are changing and what used to be home can no longer be called home.

The scenario of this book goes like this:
Bridget (the beautiful blonde, athletic type) goes to Turkey kind of randomly particpates in this dig. She finds that she loves to dig but also realizes that she makes the same mistake over and over. See she has this really great boyfriend Eric who also made plans for the entire summer. She was upset that they wouldn't be seeing each other and started to forget about him thinking she didn't love him anymore. What will Bridget learn about love in the end? Will she learn the hard way or the easy way?

Carmen (confident latina girl) has not been herself for a whole year, she has become invisible. Carmen somehow lost who she was and has been hiding behind Julia this popular actress who is a bad friend if you ask me. Carmen excludes herself from her friends and follows Julia to a drama camp, she isn't into acting but want to be with Julia and build sets. Carmen learns that friends are not supposed be happy when you are sad.

Tibby (timid and fragile) is invovled with a great guy named Brian. Because they love each other so much they took the relationship to the next level. Tibby freaks out because she might be pregnant. She becomes resentful towards Brian and pushes him away thinking that she never really loved him. What is the fate of Tibby and Brian? What does Tibby learn?

If you've read the other three books in this series, you're going to love this installment. If you haven't, read those first three books and then check this out.

Forever in Blue has the four girls fresh out of their first year of college, and a lot has changed. Carmen hasn't found her niche in life yet and feels like she doesn't belong to anything, so she's doing her best to avoid the other three seemingly successful girls and instead goes to a theater camp with a college friend, to work on sets instead of act. Tibby is taking a summer class at her college and is still in love with Brian... until a pregnancy scare makes her hide. Lena is in an art class, lusting after the first guy she's been interested in since Kostos. And Bee is in Turkey, doing an archaeological dig and becoming closer and closer friends with a young professor there (nevermind that she has a boyfriend and he's married!).

While this book deals with more mature and adult themes than the first three, it is no less charming. The author writes beautifully and manages to include numerous thought-provoking statements that are easy to relate to. You will feel yourself being pulled into the novel, unable to stop reading.

The ending of this novel is more satisfying than those in the past have been, likely because this is the last one and readers want to know what happens in the future. Most loose ends are tied up nicely, and the few that aren't are hinted at so you are able to draw your own conclusion. I highly recommend this book for those of you who have ever spent time reading about Tibby, Bee, Lena, and Carmen - you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to reread it myself.

Format: Hardcover
This was, in my opinion, the most mediocre book in this series. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't as amazing as the others. I felt sad during the entire book, because all of the girls exept Bridget were depressed or making stupid choices. The others made me laugh, cheer, and be happy, in addition to the sad and moving parts. The second book is by far my favorite, because it rings the most true to the characters portrayed in the first one. This one failed to do that.

Tibby: Her part of the book, while massively annoying, was pretty close to her normal character, since she has freaked out and avoided things through all four books.

Carmen: I didn't mind her part of the book, but it was relatively boring. She didn't seem like the same firey Carmen that I felt that I had the most in common with out of the girls. She seemed weak and lazy, which depressed me because instead of standing up for herself, she just let Julia walk all over her.

Bridget: She was actually in character, and I was entirely interested in her part of the book. She has been the only girl who has stayed true to the character in all four books. I really have nothing in common with her (her being outgoing, blonde, and hot) but I think she is my favorite character, because it was awesome to watch her grow throughout the books.

Lena: She was entirely out of character. I mean, she was so shy about looking at Leo's painting in the beginning of the book, but then she doesn't seem to have much problem taking off all her clothes in front of him, nor sleeping with him. That is SO not Lena. And may I re-state what others have said... where was Paul? I really liked him, and I think that he should definitely have been in this book.
