Having learnt to accept the new partners of both her dad and mum, Carmen discovers that there is to be yet another new addition the family, and once again she finds herself struggling to come to terms with it.
Lena desperately wants to go to art college, but her dad is against the idea. She spends her time trying to grow away from her family and get what she wants without defying him, and in the process learns to understand her family better.
Tibby's story is far more subdued than in the first summer. Still recovering from the death of Bailey, she finds it hard to express her feelings for other people, no matter how strong those feelings are.
This chronicle of the sisterhood is just as enchanting and loveable as the previous two, written with the same profound air and still able to capture the readers' hearts. Those who have read and loved 'The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants' and 'The Second Summer of the Sisterhood' will be drawn in by this in the exact same way. To those who have not read either of the previous two, you may want to do so before moving onto this one to fully understand the depths of the characters. Nonetheless, this is a fantastic book and I only wish I could have given it more than five stars.
If you're looking for one which moves you the most then it has to be this one. I'm not a person who cries in films let alone books. I'm just not like that, but somehow, this book left me in tears. It wasn't necessarily because it was sad though there were sad parts. The way it was written moved me because it involved you as a reader so much as if you were the characters themselves and feeling their pain. It has been truly amazing. I even had tears when they were happy and had learnt their lessons - I was wondering what was wrong with me.
It was really an emotional rollercoaster ride. I cannot fail to say that it was touching, moving, emotional and so much more. It's hard to describe without reading it.
I highly recommend buying this even if you weren't too keen on the first two. This will affect you in some way and make you look deep within yourself.
I would recommend this book to any teenage girl, as it is just absolutely fantastic! It is funny and sad at the same time, and made me cry at the end (and it is very rare for a book to do that). Read it!
