Publisher Comments:

Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didnt 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 theyre great. She'd love to have them. Lena and Bridget also think theyre 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.

From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Ann Brashares grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland with her three brothers and attended a Quaker school in the DC area called Sidwell Friends. She studied Philosophy at Barnard College, part of Columbia University in New York City. Expecting to continue studying philosophy in graduate school, Ann took a year off after college to work as an editor, hoping to save money for school. Loving her job, she never went to graduate school, and instead, remained in New York City and worked as an editor for many years. Last year, Ann made the transition from editor to full-time writer and wrote her first novel, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Ann lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband, Jacob Collins, an artist, and their three children, Sam, Nathaniel, and Susannah, their newborn, who is an honorary member of the Sisterhood.

"BEST BOOK EVER" In the book, there are four teenage girls that are best friends. It's summer and most of the girls are going on vacation. They are all packing for summer, but one of the girls find a pair of magical pants. They promise to send the pair of pants to each other over the summer. In the book, you get to go with each girl to there vacation spot, and you learn about each girl. This, in my opinion is an awesome book. The movie wasn't that great, but the book is 10x better. I definitely recommend this book to teenage girls, not for boys.
