Ann Brashares grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, with three brothers and attended a Quaker school in the D.C. area called Sidwell Friends. She studied Philosophy at Barnard College, part of Columbia University in New York City. Expecting to continue studying philosophy in graduate school, Ann took a year off after college to work as an editor, hoping to save money for school. Loving her job, she never went to graduate school, and instead, remained in New York City and worked as an editor for many years. Ann made the transition from editor to full-time writer with her first novel, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Ann and her husband live with their three children in New York.
Honestly, I still can’t accept the ending! I. Can’t. Just. Can’t.
In simple words, I expected a little bit more from this book. I didn’t get all what I expected. I was so thrilled and it was a little disappointing. I was really excited but then I shouldn’t have let my hopes run high.
And all I really need to tell you is that I was disappointed. I expected a little more than what happened, or the way it ended. I’m going to think the better not the lame version called possibility. I just want more. And I don’t want my heart to be more broken. You feel me?
The book was well-written and I told you, the book had so much potential. This could be a lot better if that potential was maximized. But overall, this is genius. But really, this could be a lot better.
Quotable quotes here and there.
The characters were a little bit more on the mainstream side. The typical everything.
A lot of things happened, considering how short the book really is when you look at it.
I love Ethan. And Prenna is pretty annoying and fine at the same time. And I love Ethan so I hate the ending.
And looking at everything, I was just-
But really, I’m disappointed and that’s all I can really think about when I think of this book. It was fine in a great way, and I’ll just leave it at that.
