Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2

Was anyone else wondering how they were going to pull off the second Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie? They departed so far from some major plot points in the first movie, that I didn't see how they could stick with the storyline from the books. I figured it was going to be another Princess Diaries 2 (since Princess Diaries 1 departed so far from the books, that the second movie's plot was totally made up and had nothing to do with the book series).

Well, word is out that the second movie will borrow plot from all of the books, but will be mostly based on the fourth book, Forever in Blue, which takes place during the summer between high school and college. Sounds like a smart move to me. I was also happy to note that they kept all of the original cast even though America Ferrera and Blake Lively have both been busy with wildly popular TV series.

It will be interesting to see if the second movies sticks closely to the books series and keeps readers happier than the first movie.
