Girls In Pants by Ann Brashares

It's somewhat embarrassing how much I like this series. It's not deep writing, the message isn't profound, and yet I really enjoy reading about the girls' lives. With reluctance (due to my embarrassment), this book receives another 4 stars.

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares

Clear rating
It's not great writing, but the book had anecdotes of teenage love, crushes, and transitioning relationships with mothers that made me remember what it felt like to be in high school. Because it evoked these feelings, rating went from 3 stars to 4.

A really good book - beautiful, haunting, powerful, grotesque, ponderous.

I would have given this book 3 stars, except for the ending. Otherwise, the whole book is slow, but the ending sucker-punched me in the face.
