Book Review

Ann Brashares
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
(DB53252 this number is for other blind people using NLS)

I found this book to definitely be a YA title. This is not a bad thing, but it will not appeal to a wide range of adults like many of YA novels do. The writing kept me engaged and that is why I finished it, especially as a bedtime read.

The issues in the book had a strong adolescent girl pull to them and thing this is what will limit the audience for the book. One of the girls is faced with a very grown up issue while another struggles with her perspective and childish behavior. If you are a mother, you will find the book endearing. In my view, this novel would be a good read for girls from twelve to fifteen.
