3 Willows

This was supposed to be "another sisterhood". It wasn't great....barely even good. The author tried really hard to make it like the sisterhood of the traveling pants but she wanted to start younger. The plot wasn't great. It kept me interested but still it wasn't much. They mentioned the last books a lot (well the people that were in them at least) and that got old. I had right hopes for this book and was let down a little bit.

Here is what the back reads.

summer is a time to grow

Polly has an idea that she can't stop thinking about, one that involves changing a few things about herself. She's setting her sights on a more glamorous life, but it's going to take all of her focus. At least that way she won't have to watch her friends moving so far ahead.

Jo is spending the summer at her family's beach house, working as a busgirl and bonding with the older, cooler girls she'll see at high school come September. She didn't count on a brief fling with a cute boy changing her entire summer. Or feeling embarrassed by her middle school friends. And she didn't count on her family at all. . .

Ama is not an outdoorsy girl. She wanted to be at an academic camp, doing research in an air-conditioned library, earning A's. Instead her summer scholarship lands her on a wilderness trip full of flirting teenagers, blisters, impossible hiking trails, and a sad lack of hair products. It is a new summer. And a new sisterhood. Come grow with them.

Honestly I would only give it 2 out of 5 stars.
