The Second Summer of the Sisterhood

The fun cast of characters from Ann Brashares' popular YA novel The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is back for another summer in the sequel to this New York Times bestseller, this time titled The Second Summer of the Sisterhood. These four girls (Bridget, Carmen, Lena, and Tibby) are expecting an uneventful and quiet summer. But their dull plans might just change.... 
   Bridget's heading down to her late mother's hometown in Alabama and trying to uncover some of her past. But how will Bridget find anything about her mother-or herself-if she doesn't want to face the truth?
   Carmen's convinced that this summer the Traveling Pants will become the Love Pants. But not for her! Upset and angry when she finds out that her mother's worn the Pants on a date, she's sure that her mother will ditch her for her new man.
   Lena's been hiding from love for a year, but when a lover from the past shows up on Lena's doorstep with surprising news, Lena's got to face the music--even if it means heartbreak.
   Tibby's enrolled in a summer film camp at a local college. Can she make the perfect movie? Can she stop hiding from the memories of a special friend who Tibby had lost?
   And through heartbreak, sorrow, joy, and love, can the sisters of the Traveling Pants make this summer as special as any other?
