Wow! I'm so excited to be posting my first review. And the lucky book is....Three Willows, by Ann Brashares!
Title: Three Willows
Author: Ann Brashares
Delacorte Press, 2009
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Recommended to: Teen girls 12-16, especially for fans of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!
It's a whole new sisterhood! That's the gimmick behind 3 Willows, the newest book from Ann Brashares, the ah-mazing author behind the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. Polly, Jo, and Ama have just graduated from middle school, and are going off to high school next year. Over the summer, they each have different adventures, cute new boys, and a new respect for themselves. Whoops! (I forgot to add that they go to the same HS as the Sisterhood, and kinda sorta know them.)
So...that pretty much sums it up! When I first saw this book, I was like...OMG!! A new sisterhood book! But then I realized that it wasn't going to be as good as the first series. Boy, was I wrong! 3 Willows is way better than the Sisterhood. I first read through this book supa fast, and thought it was sorta iffy, but then read it again and adored it!
I loved how Polly, Jo, and Ama are younger than the Sisterhood when we first meet them, so it was easier for me (the same age as them) to relate. They've been friends ever since they were babies, (like me and my 3 friends) and are realizing that they are so different now.
All in all, this book is great! Ann, please keep writing..we love your books! This is definitely a must buy.
