Point of View

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood is written from the perspective of a third-person narrator. The narrator is omniscient, providing the reader with not only factual information, but also the inner thoughts and feelings of the various characters. The book contains an appropriate balance of descriptive exposition and dialogue, and is also sprinkled here and there with portions of letters, notes, e-mails and instant messages that are exchanged between various characters. The book focuses entirely on Lena, Carmen, Bridget and Tibby, giving little or no insights into the thoughts of the novel's other characters.
