The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Book Review
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.
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.
