Four very different friends. One pair of magical pants. And a summer apart.

I almost bought this for one of my nieces a couple of years ago, and now that I've read it, I wish I did. It was a pretty good story, and I enjoyed it enough that I'd like to read the second one. (And possibly the third.)

I really enjoyed this book. I know I'm "slightly" above the targeted age group, but I can remember what it was like to be that age. And I really need to find me some pants like that! :-)

I just finished this book and I'm not a bit ashamed to say I cried. I was almost surprised at how good it was. I totally enjoyed it. Sometimes I wish I could go back to as certain age, to do things differently, but I really don't think I would want to be that age again. I barely lived through it the first time.

Thanks three104! Based on the comments in this book's travel log, I'm anxious to read it! Maybe I'll be able to pass it on to my niece...though she isn't much of a reader.

Thanks Nou!!!

My apologies for keeping this so long!

Carmen and her best friends, Lena, Tibby, and Bridget, are going to be spending their summer apart for the first time ever. Just before they all leave to go their separate ways, Carmen buys a pair of used jeans and everyone tries them on. These jeans are magic pants, as everyone looks amazing in them. They agree to pass the jeans along to each other over the summer so they each have a chance to experience the magic from the jeans. Rules are written and the girls go their separate ways.

Lena has them first, as she travels to Greece to visit her grandparents. Her grandmother tries to set her up with a Greek boy roughly her age, but Lena isn't having any of that. The jeans are then passed on next to Tibby, who is staying at home during the summer working at Wallman's. Tibby meets a 12 year old girl when the deoderant display knocks her over. The two of them become friends and start making a documentary. The pants are then passed to Carmen, who is living with her divorced father in South Carolina. The only problem is that when she arrives, Carmen finds out that her dad is getting married again in the summer to a mother of two and that her dad has essentially found himself a new family. The final one to get the pants is Bridget, who is at a soccer camp in Baja and is falling in love with one of the counselors.

This is a cute book with regular teen problems that you would see: boys, work, friends, and sex. I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I thought it was just going to be another teen book but the friendships are very real and the problems of each character aren't exaggerated. I will be looking to read the next in the series because it was fun. Who knows, I may even watch the movie! Though I hear it doesn't follow the book too well.

Journal Entry 20 by wingAceofHeartswing at Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Friday, May 20, 2011
This is a YA book that is a joy to read. Four friends, Carmen, Lena, Tibby and Bridget will be spending their first summer apart. Carmen buys a pair of pants and they fit each of them perfectly. The sisterhood of the travelling pants is born when the friends decide to share the pants during the summer.

Lena travels to Greece with her sister to visit her grandparents. She finds out that not every boy is shallow and some might actually be worthwhile. Carmen travels to South Carolina to visit her divorced father only to find out he is engaged and has a ready made family. Can she fit in? Bridget travels to soccer camp in Baja and falls in love with one of the counselors. Tibby, the only one to stay at home works for Wallman's and ends up meeting a 12 year old who has leukemia.

This book was engaging through the girls' trials and tribulations. A great coming-of-age story!
