The third installment of the Traveling Pants collection is now on book store shelves near you - just in time for the release of the Traveling Pants movie being released on June 3, 2005! Read on for the book review right here.


The Third Summer of the Sisterhood

For their entire lives, Carmen, Tibby, Lena and Bee have shared a special bond. Their moms all met in a prenatal aerobics class 18 years ago - and ever since, the foursome has been inseparable. They've always been there for one another through the hard times, until one day, two years ago, they were faced with having to spend the summer apart. That is when the pants came to them. A magical pair of jeans that miraculously fit each of them perfectly. Throughout each summer since, they have passed the pants around to feel connected and to experience the magic. This summer is their last summer before heading to college - and the pants are there to see them through.


Growing Apart

For the past couple of summers, each of the girls has gone off to do their thing, knowing that in the fall they will come back to the friends they've known their whole lives. This summer, only Bee goes away - and when the summer comes to an end, they will have one last weekend to spend together, before all shipping off to different colleges. None of them really want to face having to say goodbye, so they immerse themselves in different hobbies throughout the summer.


Falling in Love

The first book in the Traveling Pants series had many of the girls falling in love for the first time. In the third book, they have each grown up a lot and re-evaluated what was most important in their lives. Carmen has to come to terms with her mom starting a new family with her new husband, Lena learns to follow her passion for art, Bee confronts the past and starts to let old wounds heal, while Tibby learns to face life head on. And during all this self-discovery, they each find someone who they really care about.


The Bottom Line

This whole series is one that every girl should definitely read! It's all about the importance of friendship, which is something we sometimes forget. Without a good friend by your side, life can feel overwhelming sometimes - but with the right person helping you out along the way, you feel like you can conquer the world. Girls in Pants, along with its accompanying books, is funny, heart-warming and totally magical. Be sure to pick this up and check out the movie once it hits theaters!

    Girl died in 1993. The murderer chanted " toma sota baicu" as she was being murdered. Now that you have read this chant you will meet this girl in the middle of the night and she will stare at you direcly in the eyes and she will suffocate you the same way she was. This story is sadly true. If you post this to 5 different events. She will not bother you but protect you. If you copy and paste to 10 different evvents. She wont bother she will protect you and you will have the best day of you life

    Well, I'm not sure if any of you knew, (I might have told Alpha T, but I don't remember if I did) there was an incident which happened at our school. I was a few doors away when it happened, but a person, who was in her class, stabbed a teacher, who I knew and loved, in front of a group of seniors getting ready for their GCSE's. I remember the screaming and commotion caused as she screamed for her pupils to get out. A girl came into my class, screaming that Mrs Maguire had been stabbed.  We saw our teacher rush out of the room.  That day, we were escorted to lessons by teachers. We weren't allowed to go anywhere unless a teacher told us... We were made to stay at the school the whole day, and we were all so worried. Mrs Maguire was a well lived teacher you see. The teachers told us that an 'incident occurred' and we shouldn't worry. The general public knew she died before us... The press were all over the outside of the school, taking photos of us...  (I don't wanna stray too far from the topic) but the guy who did it does deserve the death penalty. I don't care what the cost is and I don't quite care if I'm honest. He killed a teacher that I knew and loved, and I'm sure you would agree that you'd feel the same in that situation... I do. He only got 20 years, (which is apparently life here in the UK.) :angry
