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!

    On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.

    Definitely not. A person can learn to control their heartbeat and lying skills, so the tests are most definitely NOT a accurate.

    Kirsteeeeen said I should post this so yeaOk so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now
