The Sisterhood Grows

We have just received Ann Brashares new book 3 Willows: the Sisterhood Grows. Ann Brashares fame came from her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series for teens (teen girls really), and the series has led to two movies. The new book is not part of the Traveling Pants series but has some tie-ins. From Ann Brashares blog: "The main characters are new, but the book takes place in the same world as the Sisterhood. In fact, there are certain secondary characters you will recognize. (Effie!)"

According to Ann's blog she is planning to write another one in the Traveling Pants series because she has been thinking about the characters a lot lately. That is something I find fascinating about writers--they spend so much time with their characters that the characters can live on after a book or series is finished. I would think it would be hard to let them go. Anyhow, I have not yet read 3 Willows but so far reviews have been very positive.

****Interesting side note: Ann Brashares grew up in Washington DC, and attended the Sidwell Friends School. Sidwell has been in the news of late because the President-elects daughters are currently enrolled. Other notable alumni include Bill Nye (yeah the Science Guy) and Charlie Gibson.
