What it's about: 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 that 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 then the journey of the pants — and the most memorable summer of their lives — begins.
The ending is the most important part: Yes, there were tears, and the ending was wonderful.
Last word: I know that there are more stories, but I'm good with just this one. I really recommend though.
Spoilers after the jump
I loved these girls. I've seen parts of the movie, but not all. I still think that the book was better.
The part where Lena goes to get Bridget to bring her home made me cry. What a lovely story of friendship!!
