Overview

It's the summer before the sisterhood departs for college...their last real summer together before they head off to start their grown-up lives. It's the time when they need their Pants the most.

Tibby: Learns that the Pants have always known what she hasn't about Brian, and clings to them tightly -- while others around her leap headfirst.

Carmen: Needs all the Pants magic possible, now that she's agreed to watch Lena's cranky Greek grandmother for the entire summer. Not to mention that she's pretending to be someone she's not -- to someone who could really matter....

Lena: Wishes the Pants could tell her whether going to art school is the dream she should follow, even if it means her family won't support her.

Bridget: Is especially glad to have the Pants at soccer camp when she finds out who her fellow coach is.

In this breathtaking novel, which brims with sunshine and sorrow, courage and happiness, Ann Brashares takes readers on an amazing journey into a summer that will change everything for the girls and their cherished magical Pants.

The members of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants graduate from high school and spend their last summer before college learning about life and themselves.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Since publication of The Second Summer of the Sisterhood in 2003, readers have waited with bated breath for the third uplifting installment of Ann Brashares' blockbuster series. At last, the Traveling Pants are back! Filled with changes, surprises, and -- of course -- friendship, this appealing page-turner follows the four friends through the last eventful summer before they head off to college. Beginning with the ceremonial unfolding-of-the-Pants, Brashares dives headfirst into the complicated lives of the four girls: Carmen, who is now taking care of Lena's grandmother and dealing with a new development at home; Lena, whose plans for art school might be thwarted by her father; Bridget, who finds an unexpected surprise at the soccer camp where she is working; and insecure Tibby, who discovers in herself untapped reserves of strength. In this touching and heartfelt story, Brashares sends her likable characters off in several directions; but, as always, she ultimately brings them together in an affirmation of friendship. And, while it remains to be seen what further adventures await the girls as they leave for their different schools, one thing is sure: Fans of the Traveling Pants will continue to savor every twist and turn in this inspiring series. Shana Taylor
Publishers Weekly
The four lifelong friends are back as they face their last summer together before college. "The girls' genuine love and tenderness will win readers over and make them envious of the friends' strong bond," said PW. Ages 12-up. (July) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Billed as the YA Ya-Ya sisters this series has many devoted fans who will have to have the third installment to find out what is going on with their favorite heroines as the four faithful friends get ready for college. Bridget's off at soccer camp co-coaching with her past love, Brian, and she is thinking more about him than college. Artistic Lena's father has caught her drawing a nude model and has decided an art education is not the thing for her . . . so she has to figure out how to get herself funded at the Rhode Island School of Design. Carmen is concerned about going all the way to Williams College when her mother and new husband are having a baby . . . does she really want to leave a hole that's so easily filled, or maybe she'd go to a local school? Tibby begins her summer by finally accepting Brian's physical attentions . . . but now what? This is the last summer before they will take off in different directions. As usual this is fast-paced, addictive reading. 2005, Delacorte, Ages 11 up.
—Susie Wilde
VOYA
Lena, Carmen, Tibby, and Bridget spend the summer before college tackling their greatest challenge to date: moving forward and apart while maintaining the friendship that has been central to their identities. Carmen seethes with prenatal sibling rivalry and even considers abandoning Williams College for the University of Maryland to shore up her position at home. Lena searches for a way to attend Rhode Island School of Design after her increasingly conservative father declares that he will not pay for such a frivolous education. Bridget, now a soccer camp counselor, forces herself to face her past with Eric before she heads off to Brown, while NYU-bound Tibby struggles with her deep fear of change-in her family relationships and in her fledgling romance with Brian. As with the previous two Sisterhood books, this story is primarily about relationships, and Brashares's laser-like focus yields a satisfying emotional payoff. The girls have matured enough to work through the realistic, heady mixture of discomfort, joy, and anticipation that defines the in-between state of their lives. Between schools, between homes, and between romances, they are primed to tackle the likely problem of the series' next title: Will the power of the Sisterhood sustain them through a year of new friendships and independent experiences? Brashares cannot quite balance four narratives and juggle a host of secondary characters-love interests Eric and Win emerge as three-dimensional characters, Kostos appears only in Lena's daydreams, and Brian is largely a wordless cipher-but this minor flaw is unlikely to deter series fans. VOYA CODES: 3Q 4P J S (Readable without serious defects; Broad general YA appeal; JuniorHigh, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2005, Random House, 352p., and PLB Ages 12 to 18.

KLIATT
Fans of this delightful series of books will eagerly grab this third part. (It has been announced that a movie will be made of this series and released in the summer of 2005, which will only encourage more readership.) To recap: it concerns four friends, four families, linked by a lifetime of memories and also by a magical pair of pants that brings out the best in the girl wearing them. This third summer of the sisterhood is the summer after graduation, before the friends—Tibby, Bee, Lena and Carmen—separate and go to college, so there is a bittersweet quality to the story. Each girl is a thoughtful, articulate, attractive person with her own set of talents and interests; connecting them all is the friendship they treasure. They may get their feelings hurt, they may stagger around in despair, they may be confused, they may be celebrating and happy—they are absolutely believable characters. As they pursue their activities this third summer, they frequently are in touch with one another, which is how the reader finds out what's going on in each life. It's best to start with the first book, but each book is equally enjoyable. KLIATT Codes: JS*—Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2005, Random House, Delacorte, 338p., Ages 12 to 18.

Kirkus Reviews
Tilly, Carmen, Lena and Bee are graduating from high school and heading to college-Brown, RISD, NYU, and Williams. In the summer before college, before getting on with "their real lives," the girls have the Pants to keep them connected as they go their separate ways. Brashares provides a prologue for those new to the saga, explaining the sisterhood and the magical powers of the Pants they share-one at a time, of course-during the summer. The Pants offer a kind of spiritual link between the girls, providing love, security and connectedness as they face various dramas with boys, parents, new siblings and uncertain futures. The theme of this volume is change, as the girls understand they are leaving one life behind, but in one way or another, each realizes that leaving home doesn't mean giving up home or friends. Four intersecting story lines, snappy dialogue, empathy for characters and humor make this installment as enjoyable as the others. Legions of fans will enjoy spending another summer with the girls. (Fiction. 12+)

Read an Excerpt

Granted, Tibby was in a mood. All she could see was change. All anybody talked about was change. She didn’t like Bee’s wearing heels for the second day in a row. She felt peevish about Lena’s getting three inches trimmed off her hair. Couldn’t everybody just leave everything alone for a few minutes?
Tibby was a slow adjuster. In preschool, her teachers had said she had trouble with transitions. Tibby preferred looking backward for information rather than forward. As far as she was concerned, she’d take a nursery school report card over a fortune-teller any day of the week. It was the cheapest and best self-analysis around.
Tibby saw Gilda’s through these same eyes. It was changing. Its glory days of the late nineteen eighties were far behind it. It was showing its age. The once-shiny wood floor was scratched and dull. One of the mirror panels was cracked. The mats looked as old as Tibby, and they’d been cleaned much less. Gilda’s was trying to get with the times, offering kickboxing and yoga, according to the big chalkboard, but it didn’t look to Tibby like that was helping much. What if it went out of business? What a horrible thought. Maybe Tibby should buy a subscription of classes here? No, that would be weird, wouldn’t it?
“Tibby, you ready?” Lena was looking at her with concerned eyebrows.
“What if Gilda’s closes?” Tibby opened her mouth, and that was what came out.
Carmen, holding the Traveling Pants, Lena, lighting the candles, Bee, fussing with the dimmer switches near the door, all turned to her.
“Look at this place.” Tibby gestured around. “I mean, who comes here?”
Lena was puzzled. “I don’t know. Somebody. Women. Yoga people.”
“Yoga people?” Carmen asked.
“I don’t know,” Lena said again, laughing.
Tibby was the one most capable of emotional detachment, but tonight it all lay right on the surface. Her irrational thoughts about Gilda’s made her feel desperate, like its demise could swallow up their whole existence—like a change in the present could wipe out the past. The past felt fragile to her. But the past was set, right? It couldn’t be changed. Why did she feel such a need to protect it?
“I think it’s Pants time,” Carmen said. The snacks were out. The candles were lit. The egregiously bad dance music played.
Tibby wasn’t sure she wanted it to be Pants time yet. She was having enough trouble maintaining control. She was scared of them noticing what all this meant.
Too late. Out of Carmen’s arms came the artifacts of their ritual. The Pants, slowly unfolding from their winter compression, seeming to gain strength as they mixed with the special air of Gilda’s. Carmen laid them on the ground, and on top of them the manifesto, written on that first night two years before, describing the rules of wearing them. Silently they formed their circle, studying the inscriptions and embroidery that chronicled their summer lives.
“Tonight we say good-bye to high school, and bye to Bee for a while,” Carmen said in her ceremonial voice. “We say hello to summer, and hello to the Traveling Pants.”
Her voice grew less ceremonial. “Tonight we are not worrying about good-bye to each other. We’re saving that for the beach at the end of the summer. That’s the deal, right?”
Tibby felt like kissing Carmen. Brave as she was, even Carmen was daunted by the implications of looking ahead.
“That’s the deal,” Tibby agreed heartily.
The last weekend of the summer had already become sacred in their minds. Sacred and feared. The Morgans owned a house right on the beach in Rehoboth. They had offered it to Carmen for that final weekend, in part, Carmen suspected, because they had gotten an au pair from Denmark and felt guilty about not hiring Carmen to babysit this summer as she had done the summer before.
The four of them had promised each other in the spring that it would be their weekend. The four of them and nobody else. They all depended upon it. The future was unfurling fast, but whatever happened this summer, that weekend stood between them and the great unknown.
They all looked ahead to college in different ways, Tibby knew. They all had different amounts to lose. Bee, in her lonely house, had nothing. Carmen did; she dreaded saying good-bye to her mother. Tibby feared leaving the familiarity of her chaos. Lena flipped and flopped—one day she was afraid to cut ties, and the next she was dying to get away.
The thing they feared equally and powerfully was saying good-bye to one another.
After drawing for the Pants (Tibby won), reviewing the rules (unnecessary, but still part of tradition), and taking a brief hiatus to chew down some Gummi Worms, it was at last time for the vow. Like they had the summer before, they said it together.
“To honor the Pants and the Sisterhood
And this moment and this summer and the rest of our lives
Together and apart.”
Only this time, Tibby felt the tears fall when they said “the rest of our lives.” Because in the past that had always seemed like a distant road, and tonight, she knew in her heart, they were already on it.

Chapter One

Granted, Tibby was in a mood. All she could see was change. All anybody talked about was change. She didn't like Bee's wearing heels for the second day in a row. She felt peevish about Lena's getting three inches trimmed off her hair. Couldn't everybody just leave everything alone for a few minutes?

Tibby was a slow adjuster. In preschool, her teachers had said she had trouble with transitions. Tibby preferred looking backward for information rather than forward. As far as she was concerned, she'd take a nursery school report card over a fortune-teller any day of the week. It was the cheapest and best self-analysis around.

Tibby saw Gilda's through these same eyes. It was changing. Its glory days of the late nineteen eighties were far behind it. It was showing its age. The once-shiny wood floor was scratched and dull. One of the mirror panels was cracked. The mats looked as old as Tibby, and they'd been cleaned much less.

Reading Group Guide

1. The novel opens with a first-person narrative by Tibby. Why do you think the author selected this character to frame the story? Would you have selected another character, and if so, what would he or she say?

2. Epigraphs (short quotations) from a variety of sources–song lyrics, remarks by real-life personalities, fictitious sayings by the novel’s characters–are used to separate sections of the book. Which one is your favorite? Why?

3. Of the four girls, whom are you most like? Whose first year of college would you most like to follow?

4. "Our shared childhood is ending. Maybe we’ll never live at home again. Maybe we’ll never all live in the same place again. We’re headed off to start our real lives. To me that is awe-inspiring, but it is also the single scariest thought in the world" (p. 5). The girls realize that leaving for college is much bigger than leaving each other for just a summer. Do you think each of the girls is prepared to be away from her friends for an entire year? Whose first year do you most worry about? How would you prepare to leave your friends?

5. On page 3, Tibby compares each of the girls to a car. What kind of car would you be? Why?

6. "Tibby was a slow adjuster. In preschool, her teachers had said she had trouble with transitions. Tibby preferred looking backward for information rather than forward. As far as she was concerned, she’d take a nursery school report card over a fortune-teller any day of the week. It was the cheapest and best self-analysis around" (p. 10). By the end of the book, how has Tibby changed in her response to the new or unexpected? How have the other girls changed? Who has grown the most? How?

7. In both The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Girls in Pants, Carmen feels she doesn’t belong in her family. How do her feelings differ from those of Bridget, Tibby, and Lena toward their families? Do the girls’ family relationships have an impact on their friendships? Are their perceptions of their situations valid, or do they sometimes overreact?

8. Do you think Lena and Kostos could have a future together? What would you suggest to Lena if she asked you for advice about Kostos and her feelings for him? What could Lena learn from Bridget and Eric’s relationship? What could Bridget learn from Lena?

9. Each of the girls has one person who pushes her toward self examination this summer. Carmen has Valia, Tibby has Katherine, Lena has Annik, and Bridget has Eric. What does each of the girls learn about herself through these influences? Do you have someone in your life who pushes you to learn new things about yourself?

10. "There was a funny thing about Carmen, and she knew it all too well: She could understand and analyze and predict the exact outcome of her crazy, self-destructive behavior and then go ahead and do it anyway" (p. 115). What do you think of Carmen’s "Good Carmen vs. Bad Carmen" descriptions? Do certain people draw out a "good" or "bad" version of you? Why?

11. The four girls have very different approaches to relationships and love. By the end of Girls in Pants, three of them have found boyfriends with whom they are happy. Are there similarities in the ways the girls approach the search for love? Differences? Do you think their romantic relationships will change anything, good or bad, about their friendships?

12. The Pants have always provided the girls with confidence and security. If you were a member of the Sisterhood, would you adjust the rules to allow use of the Pants year-round for this first year of college? Why or why not?

    Awesome Book

    Girls in Pants Would you be upset if you had to leave your closest friends for college? In the book Girls in Pants,four very close friends Tibby, who is having a tough time worrying about her friend Brian if they should be friends or more than friends. Carmen, who gets a suprise that her mother is pregnant and doesn't know how to take it in the right way. Also, Lena is going to an art class but her father doesn not approve of it. Finally, Bridget is at a soccer camp and gets her heart broken when she finds out the boy she liked has a girlfriend. They only have the summer until college starts in September. The only thing that keeps them close is pants. These pants are magical to them because they fit each and every one of the 4 girls perfectly. If you like reading about people's lives and how they get through tough times, I would recommend this book to you. I thought this book was a very good book and I couldnt put it down. Girls in Pants is almost like a diary being written by each and one of the four girls about how their summer vacation is going, which in my opinion makes the story more interesting. This book has its ups and downs, but will everything be ok? Read to find out!

    The Third Summer of the Traveling Pants is a MUST !!!

    I am a mid-30's woman that has been hooked by the Sister Hood Of The Traveling Pants series! This book has been my latest read, but I was smart this time and bought book 3 (Third summer - Girls In pants) and the book 4 (Forever in Blue) at the same time. I had to wait a week between book 2 & 3 and it was just too long. The characters are so well rounded that I sometimes have to remind myself that they are fictional and they don't even exist! I love the internal evolution that each character goes through, and it is great to be along for the ride. I enjoyed Carmen's growth in this book, because in book 2 I was beginning to worry. Bee has her soccer, and it gives her something passionate to throw herself into, and it's great. I wonder what she would be like without it? I love Lena, she's following her heart, and she seems to know herself. Tibby seems a little lost, although she was there when Christina really needed her. As I anticipate book 4, I wonder if Bridget's brother Perry will always remain in the shadow? Great book!

    Book Review-Girls in Pants

    The novel Girls in Pants by Ann Brashares is the third novel in the ever so popular series of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. The four main characters are Lena, Bridget, Carmen, and Tibby. These four girls are best friends and share the pants all through the summer. The setting of the book takes place at soccer camp, Tibby's house, the hospital, and the art studio where each girl is spending their summer. Girls in Pants is a great read because it helps you understand that being yourself is the most important thing; if you are yourself around people they will know who you truly are.

    OMG WHOA!!

    i really liked the first two, and this one was okay. the ending wasn't that good and the pants weren't really in it. i hope there's a fourth book.

    The Movie

    I love these books, but the movie was horribly innacurate! So I'm writing a different version.

    I think this book captures a lot of knowledge about Bridget. I love her, she is my altime favorite characture and I just enjoy her. Her side of the story is always thrilling and even though i have read the serise twice i always find myself rereading those bridget moments. I always did love Eric, now he is back

    I love his series . It totally changed my life. Can't wait to read next book. Books that change your life are the best books around. These books awaken me to real sisterhood of pants. It is not THE best book so I will give it a four . Still a great book!

    I loved it! it was by far the best in the series!

    ok so I absolutely love this series! I love how the girls are all different and you can always find one that is like you and you can relate too in the many situations they go through. I like how each chapter is about a different girl, but it isn't in first person, so you can see how things are really happening and not how the character thinks they are happening. I would recommend this book to people who have read the rest of the series and for people who like the book peaches by laurie halse anderson.
