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.
this book is so sweet and all warm. It show's you what true friendship really is, and how to get trough betrayals. I just loved the writing, which was very easy, and very free. i read this book many many MANY years ago, like 6 years ago? and then i re-read it when i was like thirteen, 3 years ago.
so yeah, i really enjoyed this book, and there is a movie too I've hear'd based on this book.
