3 Willows the Sisterhood Grows by Ann Brashares

Three best friends Ama, Polly, and Jo are drifting apart. Once when they were young and all their moms didn't pick them up until later. They went to 7-11 to get junk food then they had their three plants and planted them right next to each other. But as they grew older they grew apart. Now it's the summer before high school. Polly is staying at home, but has an idea to become a model. Her and her mom don't talk much. Her mom goes to the studio and doesn't get home until later. Polly has some ideas about this modeling thing, but is let down. Jo is going to the beach house with just her mom. Because her dad is always working late at the hospital. She's the one with the new popular friends. So she gets a job and meets Zach, who she feels is so cute and amazing, but then gets in the middle of her and this bitch Effie, who happens to have had a fling with Zach last summer. Then Ama wanted to get another program to Andover, but ends up going to some Camp Wilderness. Where she knows it'll be miserable. She wants to go somewhere with books and libraries and getting A's. But it toughens her up and she learns new things about herself. While one bad experience she gets lost, and wants to go home, but decides she can't give up. All three of them maybe talk here and there over the summer but not like before. Not until Polly's mom, Dia, is unconscious from drinking and has to go to the hospital. Then they all three are together again, but wonder will it work out like before? I loved it! It's a good story on friendship and how friends grow apart from each other. It's also sad. But I thought it was kinda weird that Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was mentioned and that Effie is actually Lena's sister and Polly babysit's for Tibby's brother and sister. I wonder if there will be another one? hm
