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.

Spend another summer with the girls of the Sisterhood.

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)

    "Fabulous"

    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.

    316 audiobooks in my library and counting. I'm an addict but I'm not sure I'll ever seek help.

    "More of the same"

    If you liked the First "Traveling Pants", try the second volume. It's basically more of the same... same characters with the same youthful faults and the same predictable happy ending. With that said- this was a very entertaining listen. It was not heavy, which is perfect for the summer or vacation listen.

    "Slow on the take!"

    This book was slow but not to the point that I couldn't finish it. I found the characters to be interesting at times and the plot held my interest, but not as well as it could have. It had it's moments and I wish the "traveling pants" would make it to my mail box one day.

    "Quick Listen"
    What did you love best about The Second Summer of the Sisterhood?

    The girls are growing up. I find myself really wanting them all to succeed and find themselves. This summer was more complicated and their situations were a bit more serious than the first.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Carmen in the first book best, but Tibby in this one. I relate to her the most. She makes mistakes, but she tries to correct them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    B, on the soccer field.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Tibby and her movie


    Any additional comments?

    I am downloading the third summer right away to see what comes next. Hopefully, their relationships are a little bit better next summer. That is my only complaint- How the girls seem to be so enthralled by guys. I understand its a teen book, and they are teenagers. However, I'm starting to tune out Lena's life.

    "Great Sequel"

    I found all these books to be very enjoyable and they kinda take your mind away from all the bad things happening in the world - if only for a few hours

    "Didn't even finish the book"

    The characters were not interesting, the supposed close relationship was not developed, etc. I just didn't like the writing.
