And here we are in the fourth summer!
“We aren’t in high school. We aren’t really in our families and we aren’t in our houses. Those are the places we grew up and the times we spent together, but they aren’t us. If think they are, then we’re lost, because times end and places are lost. We aren’t any place or any time . . . We are everywhere.”
Lina has a fling with a fellow artist from art school. I am all for Lena and her sexy artist drawing each other nude until Kostos shows up again and I feel like strangling them both. Carmen has a pretty interesting story line this time. She gets sucked into doing plays at school and thinks she’s made a friend who’s actually a backstabbing saboteur. I like that Carmen finally stands up for herself here (without being mean to her mother, which is what she normally does). Bridget gets to go to Turkey for an archaeology dig. She makes out with her married professor, which sucks, but the archaeology stuff is kind of neat. Tibby sleeps with Brian, then ditches him again.
I think this book is the one that they made the second movie out of, is that correct? I know I’m familiar with Tibby’s storyline but I’ve never read this one before. Just like the other novels, it’s a solid three stars. I really did enjoy Carmen’s storyline and Lena’s finally growing on me.
