This book is like the third one, the pants are not mentioned as much anymore. The girls are placed into more adult situations such as deciding when to do "it", and finding out more about themselves as they go through college and who they really are.
The fourth and possibly the best in the series. The Septembers are growing up now... some might even say grown. They are living their lives separately while trying desperately to remember how to stay together still. And once more, the pants know just what has to happen to seal the friendship for the future.
In comparison to her other books, this one disapointed. The characters that always played off of eachother so well in the previous books hardly spent any time together in this book and the connection just was not there as it was in the others.
I was really upset about this one. Brashares has lost her touch.
I really disliked Carmen in this book because of the way she let herself be treated, but it looks like she finally figured things out in the end. They all went through a lot of bad times in this book (although perhaps not as bad as before) and the ending leaves things open for hope for each of them - not perfect but with the chance for happiness.
The ending of FOREVER IN BLUE is bittersweet and excellent. It's realistic, touching, and satisfying, all at once. All the years we've loved these four girls, here is one last time to see them mature and learn how powerful their bond with one another is. It's a bond that can outlast anything, even time and distance, and that is what makes this series so special.
