Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants By: Ann Brashares


The story of four best friends, an amazing summer, and one magical pair of pants

Book Talk:

Have you ever had a piece of clothing that was really special to you? It felt like things just ‘happened’ when you wore it? It made you feel lucky? For Carmen, Lena, Bridget and Tibby it’s one magical pair of jeans that magically fits all four of their different figures. As the four friends spend the summer apart they exchange their stories which each passing of the pants.
Through these traveling pants the girls keep in touch from soccer camp, home, South Carolina and even Greece. The pants see forbidden love, embarrassing moments, triumphs, failures, and new friendships. It is with these pants the girls keep their friendship and the magic flowing, until they are united again.
