Book Review: Forever in Blue

Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares

SUMMARY: This title marks "one last, glorious summer" for the traveling pants, and it's a time of changing identities and growing independence for the Sisterhood. As they discover new talents after their first year of college, the girls face increasingly grown-up dilemmas: an unwanted-pregnancy scare, crushes on married men, malicious co-workers, and questions about how to know if a love is lasting. By summer's end, each realizes that, with or without the pants, she is confident, talented, and lucky to share in such a nurturing lifelong friendship. A strong, satisfying conclusion that won't disappoint fans. (adapted from the Booklist review)

OPINION: As a fan of the series, I have to say that I am totally biased in favor of this book. You know how excited I was about its release, and I read it in one sitting! That said, it was a wonderful end to the series, wrapping up old storylines while taking each girl in a new direction. I thought it was an appropriately mature send-off for a group of college girls and their much-beloved pants. You won't find it on any library shelves, though...all the copies in the county are checked out! Come in and get your name on the waiting list for the first available copy. Or, go buy one!!
