Girls in Pants By: Ann Brashares

This novel attracted me, because I had seen the movie "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants." This was a smash movie in the summer of 2005, and I viewed it at home, and I loved it.

This novel is about Carmen,Lena, Bridget, and Tibby who have been good friends since childhood. Pants are what keep them together as friends, and have some magical touch for all four girls. The girls spend their final summer together, before going to different colleges.

It's interesting the way the girls react towards events. First, Tibby learns that her pants had known what she hasn't about Brian, so she longs, and lingers for her pants. Carmen, she's needs the magical pants because,she is taking care of Lena 's Greek grandmother for the summer. Another fact is that Carmen is pretending to be someone she is not.

On the other hand, Lena wishes the pants could tell her whether to go to Art School which is her dream or should she follow, even if it means her family would not support her. Bridget the final, but not the best of the group, was especially glad to have the pants at soccer camp when Bridget finds , who her fellow coach is.
