Im 15 going on 16 and I absolutely LOVED this book. It was worth every penny! In the story I felt that the pants truely were magical! Having bought this book at a secondhand thrift store for a $1.50 added even more magic :) Im a very picky reader but I was hooked from page one. I though it was going to be a sloppy, corny story, but I was wrong!! My cousin wouldn't shut up about it and told me that I just HAD to read it. I finished the book in about a day or two and I completely cried my eyes out in the end. Can't wait to read the other ones!! and maybe watch the movie too :) I loved the way the story was laid out. IT FORCES YOU TO KEEP READING!! One minute you're reading about Lena and then, it shifts over to Carmen, and then Tibby, and then Bridget, and back to Lena and so on... Oh! And in every chapter theres a cute little quote :) I loved it, some of them were funny too! I took this book to school with me and started reading in the cafeteria, and my friends looked at me like I was crazy cause I started crying. Why was I crying? 2 reasons: #1 I had finished reading it. #2 read the book and you'll see :) This book is absolutely PERFECT FOR THE SUMMER since it takes place during that time. I love books that just make me all emotional inside. Most people rate books with stars. I rate mine with tears. I cried soooo much in the end. There's always one character that you can relate to the most, but in this book you can relate to all of them in some ways :) I love Lena, we have the same taste and artistic skill and tend to be a little introverted. I loved Carmen too. We're both part Puerto Rican with some junk in the trunk and a broken family. Bridget and I share the same passion for soccer and Tibby and I have that little snappy attitude at times, we're not afraid to speak our mind, and we have crappy jobs with annoying bosses -_- In short :) quit wasting time reading stupid reviews about other peoples opinions about this book. Go out and buy it and read it. You won't regret it at all

This is one of the best books I have read. It was like another movie I had never seen before. For all the people out there, this book was about these four girls that were best friends. They each had a different vacation place. One of them had a pair of pants and it fit each and very one of them. They decided to form a sisterhood and honor the pants. They said the pants would travel form girl to girl while they are on vacation.

Great book!!! This is deffinitly a book for a 6th 7th 8th. Not because of bad stuff or anything like that.. but just because junior high girls would be able to understand more.

I give this book 5 starts mostly if not entirely because it's one of the few books that I actually read more than once. I couldnt put it down either. I love the fact that the point of view isnt limited, and the audience gets to see what's going on with all of the characters. It's been a while since I read it, but I remember I really wanted to be the girl who went overseas with her family and met the boy, I think it might have been in Greece. That's the great thing with this book, theres so many characters and the girls are all so diverse so you find yourself in one of them. Definitely recommend!

This book is the first in one of my favorite series of all time. As Carmen, Bridget, Lena, and Tibby prepare for their first summer apart, a seemingly magical pair of good looking pants brings them together. Each of the girls has to deal with life without her other three selves as she deals with conflicts that many girls can relate to. The sisterhood shows a powerful standard of friendship, strenght, trust, and love that all girls can look up to. This is a touching story by Ann Brashares about the power of friendship. Recommended ages 12 & up.

This book is utterly amazing. I think it's a perfect book for all ages. It is about four, unique best friends who had been together since birth. I will not give too much away, but each girl goes somplace in the summer when, unfortunately, thry are supposee to hang out. But they find a better communication. Their pants. This story describes each girl's hardships and fun times over the summer. Get ready for a blast of a great plot. Enjoy!

i bought this book at wal-mart when it first came out and have read and reread it so many times before, Ann Brashares takes us on a magical Adventure about four best friends and a pair of pants that they share called the Traveling pant's, each girl experience's a different, new, aspect of all of there life's and their personality during their first summer apart, with each page in the book you will get closer to these girl's like they are your best friend's, the sisterhood of the traveling pants is definitely one book to invest in, it is money well worth spent, each girl will find their way into your heart & possibly show you something that was never there before, this book is truly excellent, it is one of the best books i have ever read and reread before, these four girls are best friends and have been since they was babies, i highly recomend this book to everyone, these jeans fit all four friend's perfectly, this is 1 of the best book series i have ever read and reread before, Ann Brashares is one of my favorite top Authors, the books are just as good as the movies are, the girls decide that the jeans should be shared & sent back and forth from friend to friend during the summer, this is a good story about friendship, the sisterhood of the traveling pants is a very good book, it is very well written, this is a good story about growing up, the characters are all very likeable in this book, they all decide that the pants should be only worn in the summertime, and they all have to write a memory on the back of them when the summer ends, i give this book 5 stars, Ann Brashares is one of the best Authors ever.

This book is a winner in every way. A very wise professor once said, ¿As a teen, you begin to learn who you really are, when you break away from the group.¿ Ann Brashares has brought this universal truth to literary life and the female YA audience eloquently in this soulful book. (In fact, the series of all four books are winners and more enjoyable when read straight through, because the reader will appreciate the character development.) Ms. Brashares writing is precise where it needs to be, yet leaves room open for thought and challenges fer her readers. The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants, is the story of a rare and unique friendship between four girls Bridget, Lena, Tibby and Carmen. A pair of magical blue jeans comes into their lives one day that just happen to fit their very different bodies. The pants become the perfect metaphor, as the girls share them during their first summer apart, which takes place between their Sophomore and Junior year in High School. The first book is told from Carmen¿s point of view. Her feisty spirit grows thorns when she arrives in South Carolina to spend the summer with her Dad. Life becomes tumultuous when she arrives, and is surprised to meet his fiancée and her stepbrother and stepsister to be. The summer turns out to be as comfortable for them as a group stranded on an island with poison ivy, sun poisoning and a variety of bug bites. Lena, a sensitive artist, and her younger sister spend the summer on a picturesque Greek island with their strict Grandparents. Her self-concept is challenged when she meets her first love, Kostos. Bridget, who¿s nickname is Bumble Bee, reels out of control as a result of a traumatic event. While spending the summer at soccer camp in Baja, her lustful, self-destructive path fuels out of control when she gets involved with one of her coaches. Tibby, is the only friend who finds herself spending her summer in their hometown of Bethesda. She is the ignored child of parents who had a second family late in life. Tibby tries to deal with hurt and abandonment issues by making a documentary of everyday people. She learns much about herself through her pet, younger brother and sister, and from unlikely new friends she makes during the summer while creating her film, and working at a local drug store chain. This wonderful story is told with love, support and wisdom. It shows that real friends don't have to be competitive and mean-spirited. What a joy. Many surprises will delight the reader. I loved every page of it.

Why is the Ebook version more expensive than the paperback?????????????? No Ebook should be more than 7$ honestly. It's crazy. Ebooks should be 4-5 dollars less than the hardcopy of the book.

Ohhh. This book. Amazing. Everyone says that Bridget is terrible as this and that, but I found myself enjoying her chapters, especially near the end when she realizes that maybe intimacy isn't the only way to get a guy into you. This book will make you laugh from the silliness (is that a word?), smile from the sweetness, and cry from the tradgedy. Foour thumbs up, including feet!

The trials and tribulations of growing up are presented in a wonderful light that makes this book a timely learning experience as well as a spectacular story. This is a Young Adult novel that gives credence to the feelings and expectations of teen girls everywhere. There are many lessons to be learned here and the author presents them in a manner that makes the reader feel a part of the story. 4 girls, all the same age as me-Carmen, Bridget, Lena and Tibby. All of there stories touched me, and I felt exalted when done reading it. The fact that I passed it on to my friend and she read it in a day too, says a lot about it. She never reads books in one day. This book was truly excellent, but I wouldn't recommend it for kids under 13. This book deals with true teenage problems, and doesn't depict teenagers as stupid or dumb, but does paint them as naive, but not in a condescending way. It also deals with them learning a lesson that they will remember for the rest of their lives. I think it is very appropriate for ages twelve and up. I would not teach this book to the whole class but I do think that I would keep it on a shelf in the room for free reading time. The problems I had with this book were the gaps in time. I wish it were set up more like short stories for each character rather than just randomly starting another paragraph about the other person. I loved the quotes throughout the book although at some times they seem incredibly random. I especially enjoyed the stories about Tibby and Bailey. Death is something that teenagers deal with everyday. I just wish that this plot could have been flushed out a little more. I also really enjoyed Bridget's story although you never really know what happened between her and the counselor. I needed more information. Overall I really enjoyed the book although it was a bit fluffy at times.
