Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares

I had read the Sisterhood books in college and was pleased to see them come out with another book. The girls are on the verge of turning 30. Tibby has been living in Australia, Carmen is a TV star, Lena is an artist and teaching art, and Bridget is still the free spirit she has always been. They all have been fairly out of touch with each other and not the sisters that we remember. Tibby surprises the girls with invitations and tickets to meet back at Lena’s family home in Greece. However, soon after the girls arrive, tragedy strikes and the girls each have to figure out how to deal with it and move on. Each girl was such a part of the other’s lives that they are lost as they each go back to their separate lives still dealing with this tragedy.
Part of me was angry or diappointed in the book because of the tragedy, but at the same time, I enjoyed revisiting the sisterhood and seeing how things had changed for them and where their lives had taken them.
