The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn’t look all that great: they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach.

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.

I really enjoyed this, much more than I expected. I've heard of this book for years, but I never took the time because I expected it to be too aimed at the young for my tastes. It is definitely a book about and for teens, but it speaks to all ages. It makes you think about things. All of the gir...
These books were seminal to my teenage years. I was roughly the same age as the characters in each book (+/- one year). But I haven't read them since then. I almost stopped my reread because on one of the first pages there's a comment about people eating dogs in Korea. Seriously? This book was pub...
31/5 - Why do they always have to change the book in order for it to become a movie?! Alexis Bledel is nothing like the way I would have imagined Lena (described as having the tanned skin of her Greek ancestry, while Bledel is quite white) if I had read the book first and her character's experience ...
Hello everyone and how's it going for you all? I hope you're doing well! Well, for me I'm doing pretty good. Today I'm going to do a review on The Sisterhood Series by Ann Brashares. I've seen the movies way before I read the books this year. I was shocked and surprised at just how different the boo...
