The synopsis of the book (taken from the author):
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 was a big fan of Brasheres' "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" books and with that being said, I didn't think that she could produce another series like it.
When I started to read this book, I didn't have high expectations for it, but the more I read it, the more I began to like it and found myself getting anxious about what would happen next to the characters.
It was nice to see a few of the characters from the original "Sisterhood" make an appearance.
I hope that Brasheres continues with the lives of the three characters in this book like she did with the girls from the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"!!
I recommend this book to anybody who enjoyed Ann Brasheres' "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" books, anyone who likes to read "Chick-Lit", young adult readers, or anyone who is looking for a heartwarming, coming of age book.
And That's What Sarah Says!!!
