5Second Summer of the Sisterhood Rock On!, May 16, 2023
Well, surprise, surprise, Ann Brashares produces another winner. Actually it wasn't much of a surprise at all. After reading Ann's first book I hurried to the bookstore as soon as I possibly could to get her book: The Second Summer of the Sisterhood. And to be completely honest I was not disappointed at all. Don't start this book unless you've got a lot of time on your hands because the pants are going to pull you in and not let you go until they're done with you.
This summer isn't the same as the last but it still has loads of clashes, lessons, and anecdotes that make this book memorable. The Girls are once again spread all over from Washington all the way to Greece. Each one of the girls learns a new lesson but none of them are any less interesting than the first. Lena finds that first loves won't last forever. Carmen learns there's always more room in your heart for someone else. Tibby finds that there is life after the death of her friend and that she has to move on. Then Bee learns that once in a while you have to visit your childhood in order to move on as well.
If you are like me you can't wait to read the next summer. So hurry in somewhere and grab this book believe me you'll be dreading the fact that it will be over so soon!

4A good follow up, May 8, 2023
By the time I had gotten around to reading this book, I had pretty much forgotten what had happened in the first one. Despite my forgetfulness, my memory was jogged and I found this to be a very good sequel. The plotlines for each character were only some-what realistic and had enough drama to make you not want to stop reading.

5The Second Summer is even better, May 7, 2023
I read the first book because I had nothing better to do, and it was an enjoyable way to fill the time but was nothing too spectacular in my opinion. I've read quite a lot, and it was good, but not great in comparison with other young adult novels. Still having nothing to do, I decided to check out the second one. I didn't care very much about Tibby, Lena, or Carmen, but I wanted to know what happened to Bee. And so I began to read.

What happened was that I simply couldn't put it down and read it all in one sitting, stopping only to turn on the light at one point because it was getting dark out. Maybe it was because I was reading the hardcover edition, and the pages were whiter and the text bigger. Maybe it was because I heard the second book was the worst out of them all and I didn't come in with any high expectations. It really made me feel probably what all readers of the series have felt at one point or another. Resounding truths being spoken, admiration for the girls' courage, empathy at their failings, and the feeling of hope at the end that things always better without the use of a cliched everything-wrapped-up-in-a-neat-little-bow ending.

I highly recommend this, especially to young girls. Everything you've ever thought you were the only one to think is in here. And it never, ever seems like the author is dumbing anything down for her readers. Bad things happen, even with magic pants and they're not easy she manages to say without pontificating. But good things happen too, and one of the most interesting things about life (and the book) is how we manage to overcome the bad. Maybe not always at the end of a book, but hopefully by the end of a story when the readers and the characters have all become more mature.

If you read the first book and don't want to continue reading, I highly suggest you do. If you haven't read any of the books, then go ahead and try the first one out. Maybe you'll love it, or like it, or maybe not, but be sure to give the second one a chance when you're done.

Now the only thing I'm afraid of is setting myself up for a huge disappointment with the third book, but I'll take that chance.

4A satisfying sequel, Apr 21, 2023
After reading the first book of the series "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants", I had to get the second one. I wasn't as thrilled as I was with this one as I was with the first one but I would still reccomend it.

I really loved Bridgets story line. She goes to Alabama to find out about her mother and I thought that it was really good. I liked Lena's but it seemed a little too dramatic. She meets Kastos again and can't seem to go on without him. At parts though she gets a little too dramatic about him. Carmen finds that she is being pretty selfish tworads the end of the book. I liked Carmens a lot better in the first book. Tibby's wasokay. I never really thought she was an interesting character anyway but I do like her story line better in this book.

I would definetly recommend this book to anyone who liked the first.

5So Good!, Apr 11, 2023
In the second summer things with boyfriends really heat up. One of my personal favorites.
