(The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood)
It has obviously been quite a while since I read these books and was wondering, is this the same pants from the first book? If so, I think the real mystery is how these four girls were all able to fit the same pants for four summers!
I don't know why I got a part four in a series (without part 2 and 3) but, as the story is almost the same in every book (or so I'm told) it doesn't really matter.
I've only read the first book and this one, and it already felt repetitive. I wouldn't recommend it.
I found some more very old reviews, and thought to post them all now, so that they are once and for all all together ;).
Some of my friends recommended this book to me, but I wasn't blown away by the premise of four girls sharing a pair of jeans.
The book was OK, but not really something I like to read. The story was a bit simple. It's a nice read between two other books, but nothing special
Here is a summary of what the book is about. Summer is a time to grow
Polly has an idea that she can't stop thinking about, one that involves changing a few things about herself. She's setting her sights on a more glamorous life, but it's going to take all of her focus. At least that way she won't have to watch her friends moving so far ahead.
Jo is spending the summer at her family's beach house, working as a busgirl and bonding with the older, cooler girls she'll see at high school come September. She didn't count on a brief fling with a cute boy changing her entire summer. Or feeling embarrassed by her middle school friends. And she didn't count on her family at all...
Ama is not an outdoorsy girl. She wanted to be at an academic camp, doing research in an air-conditioned library, earning A's. Instead her summer scholarship lands her on a wilderness trip full of flirting teenagers, blisters, impossible hiking trails, and a sad lack of hair products. It is a new summer. And a new sisterhood. Come grow with them.
I found this book very interesting. I thought it was apart of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series but it's not. It's a new sisterhood and new friendships.
What I got out of the storyline is that no matter what your friends are always there for you.
I only hope to have friendships as close as the characters did in this book.
I do plan on reading more books from this author.
Happy Reading Everyone!
