3 Willows by Ann Brashares
3 Willows is the newest book by the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants author. I love the Sisterhood books and movies and was really excited about reading this story. Set in the same town as the Travelling Pants, this story is about 3 girls who have been friends forever. Polly, who yearns to be a model, Jo who is trying to figure out boys and Ama who is forced to go on a wilderness trip and is way out of her element. These girls use to do everything together and all of a sudden they are not only apart, but growing up and growing away from each other.
This is a pretty simple story of 3 friends who are facing the challenge of growing up. I found the reference to the girls from the Travelling Pants a bit forced and not really necessary. However, I did enjoy this story.
