Check out Kidzworld's review of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. It's about friendship, heartache, love, growing up & staying together.

Author: Ann Brashares

Ann Brashares' The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is much more than a story about a fabulous pair of blue jeans. Yes, they are kind of magical (because they seem to magically make anyone who wears them look irresistible), but the story is about a group of four best buds (Lena, Tibby, Bridget and Carmen) who spend their first summer apart from each other. The four friends vow to share the pants, so they mail them to each other along with notes about the adventures they have while wearing the jeans.


Growing Up

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is also about growing up. Even though the four girls are apart and miss each other dearly, being apart takes each of them on their own adventures of love, friendship, heartache and family upsets.


Four Characters, Four Journeys

I was fascinated with all four characters in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and wanted to know how each of their paths would unravel. I think this is a great story for teen girls but I know that guys wouldn't dig it cuz they'd consider it a "chick book." The author does a great job of expressing the emotions of the different characters and bringing the story to life. So if you want a great summer read, pick up a copy of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares.

Sure, there is no way to fully promote equal rights, but when it comes to women's place in society -at least in places such as the United States and European countries and in many other regions- it's been on a more leveled playing field with men.  So here? Here where I am? I'm satisfied. I don't believe that women's rights have been neglected. In some ways, they're held above those of men. But out there? Beyond the borders of my "humble" dwelling, there are some problems. Women are abused and seen as lesser. (I'm trying to put this in nicer terms. I don't think it's working... :/)  I think we need to work on fixing those, instead of complaining about how we're deprived as our rights. Because honestly? We have no idea how bad it is.  Sorry,  I went on a mini tangent.  I think your tangent was very good. You seem to have a pretty solid grasp of the situation, and you also are capable of expressing it well. Great post, great job.

    Why do you think that drama shouldn't stop? Don't you come in the chat room clueless about what's going on, the only fact you know currently is that drama is going on? Hmm....odd opinion, I think it should stop because most of the drama that happens on here is just petty and pathetic.

For example a 10 year old should respect a 11 year old but that 10 year old has to respect a grandpa because the grandpa is smarter and wiser than the 10 year old. I don't believe respect should be based off of level of intelligence or wisdom.  Also, age doesn't play a factor in how "smart" a person is. It does affect how much experience someone may have in the world though, thus more knowledge gained... (: But knowledge is not equivalent to sagacity. Honestly, I'm not sure if this makes any sense. I'm tired and I'm going to be going to bed soon. I'll have to check this out later. Thanks! Goodnight!

(Sometimes I find technology really irritating :annoyed. Like now. Here goes my third attempt of posting. Yay...) Agreed. Not to say that a 30 year old deserves more respect, but it should be displayed differently. The ways I respect my mom and my two year old neighbor, for example, are both distinct -but it's respect all the same. Everyone deserves respect (Gosh I feel redundant), but is should be presented in a way that's unique to the individual.
