Now in their twenties, these two vastly contrasting women are discovering the advantages and joys that the special bond of sisterhood offers. But their relationship is not without its problems, as they often clash on everything from morals to money to men. Meanwhile, Spencer, Mona's best friend, becomes the conscience of the group and helps build a bridge between the women.moreless
