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 am an English teacher and needed to pick a book for my next class semester. I did a google search, found this book and read it. It is a good book for girls, I would say they should be late teenagers before reading, only because one story line is about a 15 year old girl trying to seduce an older boy to sleep with her (I won't give it away...).

I liked the story and the characters. Its a good "coming of age" story that focuses on 4 different story lines for the 4 girls who will spend their first summer apart. The writing was good, though the author choose to bounce back and forth between the 4 stories in mid chapter, with no warning and it was a little jarring to then figure out where you are and with who. I cared about the characters by the end and wanted to see how their stories ended. I thought Carmen's father got off the hook too easily (my father also left under similar circumstances) and one girl falls for a boy that she doesn't really know, so it was a little unrealistic. Over all, a good read.

I will try the book with my 300 College girl students (its an English college program to get the Chinese girls jobs teaching English, Chinese and translation). We will see if they can handle it, the words might be above their level... but if they can get it, it might be the first English fiction book they've ever read and I'd say the story will be worth the work...

Tibby works at Wallman’s drug store. Lena goes to Greece with her grandmother. Bridget attends a soccer camp in Baja, California. Carmen flies to South Carolina for some quality time with her dad. These four best friends have to spend their first summer apart, but keep in touch through heart-felt letters and a magic pair of jeans. This book’s emphasis on strong, supportive girl friendships inspires readers. Ann Brashares cleverly tells the stories of the trying teenage years. Each girl learns something new about herself and her friends in this amazing novel.
There are some very valuable lessons to be learned from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. It shows that friendship endures all, and different personalities can deepen bonds. Brashares explains that happiness “isn't having everything in your life be perfect… it's about stringing together all the little things” (Brashares). Being a teenage girl myself, I found it easy to connect and relate to each of the characters. Every girl can find a little bit of herself in the sisterhood. Not only are the characters well-developed, and human, Brashares doesn't give them more wisdom than any other fifteen-year-olds would have. The characters live their lives as real teenagers, and delve into human emotions that all women have experienced at some point.
I really enjoyed the point of view of this book. While in the beginning it was sometimes hard to follow, it was very interesting. It was third person point of view, but jumped between each of the girls’ personal experiences. The author also throws in the notes that each girl mails throughout the course of the summer, giving insight on their thoughts and feelings. I would definitely recommend this book to friends and family; it’s truly a great read.

​This fictional story of four best friends and their first summer apart is a great book that every teenage girl should read. The story of four seventeen girls: Lena, Carmen, Bridget, and Tibby shows the true meaning of friendship and how no matter what life throws at you, you can always count on your friends for help and support. The story begins with the story of “the pants”, Carmen found these magical pants at a thrift shop and they fit her and her three best friends, despite their different body shapes. The four best friends have been best friends for as long as they can remember, and they will be separated for the first time this upcoming summer. Lena is going to Greece with her sister to visit her grandparents, Carmen is going to South Carolina to see her father, Bridget is going to a soccer camp in Baja California, Mexico, and Tibby is the only one to stay home in Maryland. They all make a deal that they will send the “Traveling Pants” to one another over the summer. They all have their own experiences over the summer, some good and some bad, but they never lose sight of their friendship.
​“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” is a great book for all ages but mostly for teenage girls. I believe that this book helps show the true meaning of friendship. Also, I think this book can even answer questions teens might have but are too afraid to ask. As teens grow and develop their bodies change, this part of life can be very confusing. Some teens can get very self-conscious, this book shows that there are other people going through the same obstacles as them self. The book includes a lot of examples of how relatable the story is to real life but one strong example is when Lena and Effie got to Greece their grandma wanted to introduce one of their neighbors to Lena. “Lena had a strong suspicion Grandma hasn’t just cooked up this idea in the last hour. She suspected Grandma had been plotting something for a long time” (Brashares, 52). This is showing how Lena’s grandmother had wanted Kostos and Lena to become close and maybe eventually get married. I know from personal experience grandparents are not afraid to say what they think or what they want to happen, so when Lena’s grandmother went out of her way to introduce the two it shows how she wanted them to become friends. I feel as though a lot of grandparents would do this, only because they want the best for their grandchild. “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” is a great book to help teen girls get through the “awkward stages” by helping them realize everyone is going through the same thing. ​
