Ann Brashares, she of Traveling Pants fame, has a new book out in hardcover. There’s something unique about this one, compared to her more famous series: it’s for adults. Of course, we all know that I think the Pants series is for women of all ages, but that’s just me. Even so, I cannot deny my glee at discovering this new gem.
Like the Sisterhood of the Traveling pants, The Last Summer (of You and Me) is about friendship, family and the joy and heartbreak those relationships create in life. With five novels to her credit now, Brashares may not be the most prolific writer published today ( I think that title goes to Nora Roberts, but I digress) yet her books are like a gourmet meal: well worth the wait, and delicacies to be truly savored.
