I've loved this whole series, although I thought the first was the best, and the third not quite as good as the others. I was happy to find that the fourth was mostly great. These books tell the story of four teenage girls who are lifelong friends, and how their friendships develop and change as they grow up. The characters are nicely multidimensional, only occasionally falling into stereotypes. With four girls to work with, Brashares can have them face a wide variety of adolescent issues without making it seem too forced.

How much background information to repeat at the beginning of a later series title is always a difficult question. I think Brashares could have repeated more in this case. In the first several chapters, I was distracted by trying to remember what was going on which character's life. The first third of the book dragged a bit, but then it drew me in and I was sad to see the book, and the series, end. If you like young adult literature, definitely give these a try.

cubbie i really enjoyed reading this book, but in retrospect, i'm mostly struck with how farfetched some of it was, especially the end.
