Publisher's Summary

With a bit of last summer's sand in the pockets, the Traveling Pants and the Sisterhood that wears them embark on their 16th summer. Bridget: Impulsively sets off for Alabama, wanting to both confront her demons about her family and avoid them all at once.
Lena: Spends a blissful week with Kostos, making the unexplainable silence that follows his visit even more painful.
Carmen: Is concerned that her mother is making a fool of herself over a man. When she discovers that her mother borrowed the Pants to wear on a date, she's certain of it.
Tibby: Not about to spend another summer working at Wallman's, she takes a film course only to find it's what happens off-camera that teaches her the most.


What the Critics Say

"Brashares has deftly interwoven the story's strands to convey the relaxed intimacy of the girls' friendships as well as the many parallels in their individual experiences....big-hearted, complex tale of living, learning, and caring." (School Library Journal)
"A happy, ultimately hopeful book, easy to read and gentle in its important lessons. Readers will want at least one more summer of the sisterhood of the traveling pants." (Booklist)

Another fantastic summer with the Sisterhood. If you've listened to the first book, you'll pick right up with the girls, who are really young ladies in the sequel. I thought the book was a little slow at the start, but once it gets going, you'll sit in the car for "just another minute" after you reach your destination. The second half has several "I-can't-cry-because-I'm driving" moments.

The third book is due out in January, and I will purchase that one as soon as Audible has it available.

Another hit

Brashares does it again in the Second Summer! I was again drawn into the world of the Sisterhood, and I laughed and cried, felt lost and triumphed right along with the girls. If you haven't read the first book, I highly recommend doing so before falling into this one.
