From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares comes the welcome return of the characters whose friendship became a touchstone for a generation. Now Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget have grown up, starting their lives on their own. And though the jeans they shared are long gone, the sisterhood is everlasting.

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.

As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess N | 2/16/2014

    " loved it. read it in one sitting and cried a lot. it's an emotional book with lots of sadness and joy. definitely recommend reading it, i'm tempted to reread it tomorrow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delilah | 2/15/2014

    " It was an interesting way to end the series, and I liked it. I am glad there was lots of closure to end the long journey that is the Sisterhood. I can't imagine a better way to write the end than how this was written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Bills | 2/15/2014

    " Book started out slow it was ok not what I expected "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 2/14/2014

    " This book made me MAD. Not sad like other people. I was really ticked that the story turned the way it did. Additionally, since the first four books are young adult reads, and could easily be in the book list of middle schoolers, fast forwarding the "sisters" into adulthood doesn't jive. Not to mention the heavy heavy stuff they have to deal with. I wouldn't want my middle schooler reading this 5th book, at least not without me there to discuss & process it with her. It worked okay for me since I didn't read any of them until I was already 30, but this one doesn't seem like a tween/teen book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 2/8/2014

    " Really giving this 4.5 stars. I loved this last installment of the traveling pants series. What made it so great was Brashares didn't keep the girls the same age, she aged them 10 years, it made it so much easier to relate to the girls. I've always loved this series and was very sad to see it come to an end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Echo | 1/12/2014

    " I didn't expect to ever see another Sisterhood book after the fourth, so I was excited when I found out there would be a fifth. I finally got around to read it, and I thought it was a very good ending to the series. It was definitely a sad book to read, and, okay, not always entirely realistic, but I think the real strength of Ann Brashares writing is in the characters. The girls seem almost real to me, and they're very easy to relate too. When I read about Lena in this book, I see myself. When I read about the others, I can see my own friends in them. (It might help that I'm almost the same age as the four girls.) Definitely a book worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristi | 1/12/2014

    " the previous books were very good, IMHO, but this one was the best of them all. i cried! if you're considering reading it, do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betty | 12/31/2013

    " Loved this book. It is one of my favorites. Lots of emotions come out and yes, I needed a tissue but it was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gloria Chen | 12/18/2013

    " eep so good! read it if you've read the other 4 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vilde (vforvilde) | 12/12/2013

    " Sisterhood Everlasting is a fitting conclusion for the four girls, now women, that we have read about throughout the Sisterhood series. I found the book enjoyable, and an easy read. Certainly entertaining and satisfying in the moment you're reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianna Hardman | 12/9/2013

    " An excellent conclusion to a series that I adored when I was young. Sad, profound and beautiful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sami | 9/18/2013

    " I seriously cannot recommend this book enough. I cried through 3/4 of the book. If you have read the other books in the series, this is a MUST! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Flaherty | 6/24/2013

    " Loved it, loved the whole series. The twists in this book were unexpected but great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith Derr | 3/23/2013

    " This was overall a good book. I enjoyed it and I had read the other sisterhood books. It was a good chick lit read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stevie | 2/25/2013

    " Heartbreakingly beautiful...makes you question what is truly important in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicky B | 2/10/2013

    " This was the best of all the Sisterhood books. I was surprised at every turn, it ended perfectly, and even though it was full of sadness, I was so happy to see my girls again that I didn't care. Thank you, Ann, for creating these touching characters! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Feistync | 7/23/2012

    " Keep tissues nearby while reading this one. Pretty much from the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggiemay (Eugenia) | 10/8/2011

    " I was a bit lost at the beginning and not all of it came together at the end but the story had some unexpected twists that made it a one-night read cause I could not put it down . . . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelsey | 10/7/2011

    " I thought the story line was ...unexpected... for the sisterhood of the traveling pants series. I enjoyed reading it (just like all the others!) but this definitely had an adult feel to it - a little bit darker. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 6/30/2011

    " Absolutely captivating! I saw the Sisterhood movie but have not read any of the books. The story unfolded as I managed to sort out the characters and I couldn't put it down! Beautifully written and a genuine journey of love and life long friendships. How could you not love this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/30/2011

    " Fourth installment to Sisterhood of Traveling Pants-- enjoyed reading up on the girls ten years later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla | 6/28/2011

    " Love all of these books even though they are written for young adults. I highly recommend if you've read the other Sisterhood books. Not necessarily the best written book but storyline was enough to hook me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 6/28/2011

    " Yes there were a lot of problems with it and yes at times I was very angry with most, if not all of, the characters and yet I couldn't put it down until I finished. I started crying about 1/2 way through and have only just stopped. It was cheezy and contrived and yet beautiful at the same time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 6/28/2011

    " Take note, Francine Pascal - this is how you do an "all grown up" sequel.

    I really enjoyed this book. Yes, it's pretty sad and fairly dark, but I think it's real - it pulled me in and I couldn't stop reading it, and it's stayed with me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hollya | 6/28/2011

    " Enjoyed this book although I couldn't believe the shocking beginning. BUt as the story raced to the end, I ended up liking it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 6/27/2011

    " At first, I thought I hated it. But I loved it by the end. Super sad - I don't usually cry in books and i basked my eyes out. If you like the others and you're an adult you'll like this too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 6/27/2011

    " If you haven't read this series, you're missing out on something.

    Beautiful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katelyn | 6/27/2011

    " I read this book in two days. I really enjoyed it and believe it brought the books to a close beautifully. It helped the girls relationship to be even more real and human. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylyn | 6/27/2011

    " I loved this series and I was excited to find out there was a new book. The book was sad and I used a few kleenex to get through but I enjoyed it. If you have read the other books, definitely pick the new one up! "
