Author: Ann Brashares

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!

    Here goes my rant: today I was laying on my bed tired when I heard the tv in the living room. Mom had put on "The View", a talk show. I heard something that angered me. A girl was transgender now and was a boy. But he was used to use the girls bathroom. At the end of the show (I was now in the living room), mom asked me "Was that confusing for you or did you get it?" Me: "I got it." Oh I got it alright. I have always thought transgender people should use the bathroom they want. They SHOULD. What are your guys opinions?

    I don't know about other places but here in India, this new trend of students going to coaching or tuition centers after school is quickly spreading. A few years back, coaching or tutoring was only needed for students weaker in studies but now almost all kids are opting for coaching additional to the regular curriculum. Is this coaching actually helpful and needed? Is it a boon for kids or is it simply adding to unwanted stress?
