Description from

"Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn’t look all that great; they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach. On the night before she and her friends part for the summer, Carmen decides to toss them. But Tibby says they’re great. She’d love to have them. Lena and Bridget also think they’re fabulous. Lena decides they should all try them on. Whoever they fit best will get them. Nobody knows why, but the pants fit everyone perfectly. Even Carmen (who never thinks she looks good in anything), thinks she looks good in the pants. Over a few bags of cheese puffs they decide to form a sisterhood, and take the vow of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants . . . the next morning, they say good-bye. And now the journey of the pants–and the most memorable summer of their lives–begins."

I just received this in the mail from Mokona. I can't wait to read it, but I've got to get through Memoirs of a Geisha first. After I finish reading the Traveling Pants, I'm going to see the movie with a friend.

Well I just finished the book. Overall, I liked it, but as I am a details person, I found a few things that bothered me. First of all, I really had trouble believing that these girls were only 15. Some of the things they did seemed to be very adult. For instance, Lena decided last minute to travel across the country without telling her parents, and she did it with her own money and of her own volition. Isn't it required that you be 18 to even buy a plane ticket?

And some of the dialogue was hard to believe. Did the dress lady really stand there and talk about how fat Carmen was right in front of everybody? And how about Carmen's dad? DON'T READ THE FOLLOWING IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK On what planet did think it was ok to not tell Carmen about his new life and getting married until she was standing there meeting these people for the first time??

I guess my biggest problem was that I am so excited to see the movie that all I could do was picture the faces of the actresses instead of let my imagination go. I think this is what mostly held me back from really loving the book.

Anyway, thanks again Mokona. I did enjoy it. I am passing this book along to another BCer who requested it.
