The Second Summer of the Sisterhood Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a bit of last summer's sand in the pockets, the Traveling Pants and the sisterhood that wears them embark on their 16th summer.

Bridget: Impulsively sets off for Alabama, wanting to both confront her demons about her family and avoid them all at once.

Lena: Spends a blissful week with Kostos, making the unexplainable silence that follows his visit even more painful.

Carmen: Is concerned that her mother is making a fool of herself over a man. When she discovers that her mother borrowed the Pants to wear on a date, she's certain of it.

Tibby: Not about to spend another summer working at Wallman's, she takes a film course only to find it's what happens off-camera that teaches her the most.

Review:

"[T]he author's sure ear for dialogue and her empathy for her protagonists' complicated emotions creates a story as comfortable as an old pair of jeans. A big, complex, satisfying sequel, sure to add to the author's legions of fans." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[E]qually authentic and engaging....[Small] quibbles are easily overlooked in light of the full-bodied characters and their loving, often humorous interactions." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Brashares has done an outstanding job of showing the four teens growing up and giving readers a happy, ultimately hopeful book....Readers will want at least one more summer of the sisterhood of the traveling pants." Frances Bradburn, Booklist

Review:

"[A] big-hearted, complex tale of living, learning, and caring. Brashares's novel can be enjoyed by readers who have not yet discovered the previous book. It is certain to delight those readers who have." School Library Journal

Review:

"The girls are smart, thoughtful, introspective, resourceful, creative, and flawed. They can also be self-destructive, angry, jealous and deceitful. This is longer than most YA novels, and filled with conversations, action, and life." Claire Rosser, KLIATT
