Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares

"From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares comes the welcome return of the characters whose friendship became a touchstone for a generation. Now Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget have grown up, starting their lives on their own. And though the jeans they shared are long gone, the sisterhood is everlasting. 
Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness.

Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever—but in ways that none of them could ever have expected.

As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one."
I took my sweet little time with this book because I just didn't want it to end. Brashares is one of my favorite authors for the way she writes. I read the earlier Sisterhood novels one after another because I grew so attached to the characters, so knowing that this would was the last one made it harder to let it go. I think my library was getting tired of me continuously checking this book out (sorry people who were waiting for it).

If I were in a relationship with this book, this is where I'd totally break-up with it because of the emotional turmoil this particular story put me through.  Seriously, damn Brashares for getting to know me and waiting for my walls to come down before breaking my heart!

What I loved most about this book was how true it stayed to characters and real emotion. For someone who has finished college and had friends move all around the country, I completely understand the feeling of estrangement from people you've grown up with or known for years. It sucks and really feels like you're lost going through life at times. This entire series showed how people can change throughout their lives. Whether it was a good or bad change, I appreciated Brashares for showing those sides to usually lovable characters.

I'm sure this will be a great read for a fan of the series. I don't think the book could have the same emotional response without reading the others first. Though everything has officially ended with this Sisterhood, I small part of me hopes that years from now it'll somehow continue for the purpose of being brought back into their world. If we're being honest, I'm still not ready to let it go...
