Author: Ann Brashares
A whole year has passed since the Traveling Pants were folded up and stored away, waiting for summer to roll around again. Now, their time has come to spread their magic once more!
The Traveling Pants
It's in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants that we meet Lena, Carmen, Bridget and Tibby. And, it's in the Traveling Pants sequel, The Second Summer of the Sisterhood, that we meet up with them again. The Traveling Pants are a pair of jeans that Carmen found at a second-hand store. They were completely ordinary pants until the girls realized that despite their different shapes and sizes, the Traveling Pants fit every one of them perfectly! The pants made the girls feel like a million bucks and helped their wildest dreams come true.
This time around, the girls end up separated for the summer again but the pants keep them united. The pants help Lena rekindle a romance with an old flame, help Tibby remember a lost friend, force Carmen to let her mom fall in love again and guide Bridget back to being the happy, bubbly person she used to be. The Traveling Pants certainly are all-powerful.
