When four-year-old Teensy Whitman stuffs a pecan up her nose, she sets off the chain of events that lead her to become true sister-friends with Caro, Vivi, and Necie - the original Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Now they're back, in love, and at war with convention. Discover the roots of the Ya-Yas' friendship, and roar through sixty years of marriage, child-raising and hair-raising family secrets. In the Ya-Yas' own inimitable way, these four remarkable women teach their children about the Mysteries: the wonder of snow in the Deep South, the possibility that humans are made of stars, and the belief that miracles do happen. And they need a miracle when old grudges and wounded psyches lead to a heartbreaking crime - and the dynamic web of sisterhood is the only safety net strong enough to endure.
