Were you a fan of Brashares’s Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series? Did you think it was over with fourth book? You were wrong. Brashares has written a fifth (and decidedly adult) chapter in the lives of Tibby, Bridget, Lena, and Carmen, and she goes to some really, really dark places. Still enjoyable, mostly because Brashares writes with a straightforward prose that often surprises you, this book is not exactly light beach reading. A review can be found at my blog here.
