Sisterhood Everlasting welcomes the 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.… (more)

It made me cry more than once, but it was totally worth it. I finished this in a day. ( )

This book is the reason all five of the Pants books are going in the donate box. What was this?! It was awful. I was angry after about 50 pages and it mounted until the halfway point when I grew numb and stopped caring about what happened to any of them. After all this time, almost 14 freakin' years, they are the same silly girls who are floundering through their own versions of life. I've invested way too much time in this series, even though I started skipping A LOT with this one. It truly felt "everlasting"ť and I couldn't wait to be free of it. ( )

The 5th and final book in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series brought the series to a wonderful ending in my opinion. Yes the book was very sad at points and yes I did not always love where the book headed but I did fell satisfied and happy with where the stories ended. I felt that the author brought the characters just far enough forward where they felt resolved but also where the reader could still fill in the blanks for what might continue to happen in these characters lives. All in all this book was a breat ending to one of my favorite series. ( )

Ten years later and Lena and Kostos STILL aren't together!!! Sorry, needed to get that off my chest. This book picks up ten years after the last one. Carmen is a successful actress and slated to marry a self-involved jerk. Lena teaches and is still alone. Bridget is in love but restless in her relationship with Brian. Tibby is MIA until she send each of them a plane ticket to Greece. Once there tragidy strikes. The happy ending in this one is bittersweet but wtill very nice. ( )

“Pants” fans who have grown up with the girls and love them will no doubt overlook the improbabilities, unrealized characters and plot manipulations to make this a bestseller.
