As a fifteen year old girl, I think this book is awesome!!! The setting, the main idea, the characters is perfect. It couldn't be better. I like it because they are teenagers, like me, and it really inflences friendships in this world. I love this book.

RANDOM HOUSE TRADE -
by Linda Bindner, School Library Journal,
"Brashares deftly moves from narrative to narrative, weaving together themes from the mundane to the profoundly important, from death to raging hormones, from stepfamilies to dead-end minimum-wage jobs....A complex book about a solid group of friends, with each one a strong and courageous individual in her own right."
by Kirkus Reviews,
"Debut novelist Brashares renders each girl individual and lovable in her own right, emphasizing growing up without growing apart. Move over, Ya Ya Sisters."
by Deidre Donahue, USA Today,
"This tale of four teenage girls and a magic pair of bluejeans they find and share one summer has resonated far more deeply than any of the grown-up novels I've read this year."
