Waiting on Wednesday 50

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

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.
I had no idea that there'd be a fifth book so this unexpected surprise made my morning a little brighter! I read the entire series when I was in high school and I really liked the first three books but the last one.... ergh. I'm still recovering. Let's just say that once I was done reading, I was a little, er, pissed.

BUT now that I know there's a fifth book, I'm excited! It'll be nice to reunite with the girls but I'm a bit wary at the same time..
