3 Willows by Ann Brashares
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.
From the author of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, 3 Willows I loved more than Travelling Pants series. I could connect more, and I just enjoyed it so much more. Every teenage girl should read this one, no matter who you are, what your high school clicks are and what your economic status is, your true friends will always come out when you need them. For those who love Melina Marchetta and other Ann Brashares, you will enjoy 3 willows.
Each journey that the girls take you take it with them and it helps you understand who you are too. I think that more people need to read this one especially teenage girls!
What book do you think is unappreciated?
