Tragedy strikes Bridget, Tibby, Carmen, and Lena ten years after the loss of the Pants.
My thoughts: (SPOILER ALERT)
This was a terrible book. I didn’t even finish it because I was concerned if I read further I would burn it and have to replace a library book I didn’t even like.
DROWNING?!?!?! That is the most un-Tibby like death she could possibly think of. If I had written this book, I would have at least had her be killed by wild animals while filming her own walkabout in Australia. I mean, come on, Ann.
The writing was okay, I guess, but the plot was unnecessarily slow. They spend almost the entire book being sad, which is understandable, but doesn’t make a riveting story.
This book made me dislike Carmen, who had been my second favorite after Lena, because all she seemed to care about was calories and maintaining her size zero. Bridget bugged me because of the whole leaving Eric thing. It also didn’t seem believable that she would sleep on a bench, but maybe that’s just me.
All in all, I would say this book was not worth either writing or reading.
