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.

OH MY GOD! I read this book within 24 hours, which rarely happens with me. It was AMAZING. Those who haven't read any books in The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series will still be able to read this and make sense of what goes on. However, anyone who has read the previous four books in the series, Sisterhood Everlasting will be much more emotionally impacting. Why? Well, I can't tell you why, that'd be a spoiler!

I feel Brashares has done wonderful job of presenting the Septembers and the nature of their friendship when they're older.Nothing in the plot seems far fetched and although it's always sad to see a series end, Sisterhood Everlasting is a hear wrenchingly perfect ending.
