Having read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books as a teenager, I was excited to read about the girls' lives as adults. In actually reading the book, I found myself heartbroken- not because I was disappointed in the novel, but because what I found waiting for me in the four characters to whom I had formed such an attachment was by no means a "happily ever after." It is, though, a beautiful story very much like life: full of unexpected turns, suffering, triumph and love.

Some reviewers have leveled criticism about the continuity of the characters, claiming that the Lena, Bee, Carmen and Tibby from the first four novels are not the same four women we meet in Sisterhood Everlasting. My simple responses to that is I should hope not! Ten years changes people, and growing up changes people. At their cores, the girls are still the same: Carmen has big dreams and plenty of sass, Bee is a free spirit fighting with her emotions, Lena is quiet and doesn't fully recognize her own worth, and Tibby is insightful and challenging. It is their circumstances that have shifted, and it is in this that I think some readers are struggling. The lives we find the four girls leading don't necessarily match up with what we wanted for them after reading the first four books in the series. The problem, then, is foiled expectations rather than discontinuous characterization.

The novel itself is well written and moving, and Brashares manages to capture some of the most beautiful and some of the most painful moments of life in rather stunning completeness. Despite the sadness, there is also a tremendous sense of joy, and most of all, an overwhelming sense of love. Brilliant read, highly recommended!

Ann Brashares, who wrote four insanely popular books about the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (two of which were made into equally popular movies), has countless fans. I imagine she also receives a lot of fan mail, and I'd wager that a great deal of it asks the questions "But what happened to Carmen, Lena, Tibby and Bridget next? Did they fall in love, get married, have children? Most importantly, did they stay friends forever?" These kinds of questions gain urgency as fans --- those who were young teens when THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS was first published in 2001 --- are now approaching their mid-20s themselves.

Now, in SISTERHOOD EVERLASTING, Brashares answers those burning questions with a bittersweet novel that may have some readers wishing the Sisterhood could have stayed teens forever and others reveling in this new chapter, likely with a rapidly depleted box of tissues at their side. The book, which is sensibly being marketed to adults, opens with the four lifelong friends on the verge of turning 30. Although they're all in relationships, none of them are married. And even though they're still friends, nothing matches the special kind of connection they shared in their adolescence.

Especially worrying is Tibby, who up and left the country without a warning, relocating to Australia with her long-time boyfriend Brian without even giving Carmen, Bridget and Lena a chance to give her a proper sendoff. Since then, she's been uncharacteristically silent, leaving Carmen (a glamorous television star), Lena (a moderately successful artist) and Bridget (the free spirit of the bunch) to wonder what's going on with their increasingly distant friend.

While I like most readers enjoyed growing up with Lena, Carmen, Bridget, and Tibby throughout the first four sisterhood books, the fifth addition to the series makes the story real and even more relatable for me. Sisterhood Everlasting shows us the consequences and joys of life decisions and that while a friendship between girls may be undeniably strong, it cannot fix all problems.

Ann Brashares includes her readers in the struggle of each of the girls, and I personally felt closer to each character after finishing the novel. The story lines and plot is by no means light and can be emotionally difficult to read at times, but it is not impossible, and almost necessary to absorb if you truly want to understand the story and the characters. Brashares makes you want to jump inside the book and shake each of the girls while simultaneously yelling "What are you doing with your life?!", which is a frustratingly realistic experience.

The book may not be the perfect storybook ending that many readers may have once desired for Lena, Carmen, Bridget, and Tibby (myself previously included), but after experiencing the fifth novel, I see why it was necessary. The girls are grown up and I am assuming most of the readers are as well, so grown up issues, struggles, and decisions seems logical and Brashares beautifully includes and interprets these in the novel. Happy is a relative term, and I definitely did not feel that way during or after my reading, but I was more than satisfied. This is a must read for any individual who has followed the girls growth throughout the first four novels, but I would not recommend this novel on its own. Read the first four and then you will not be disappointed.
