This is a young adult book that is just like the movie with the same title. This was a very quick read (for me as I am an adult!), but I think it would be a great book for a teenager aged 12-15. It revolves around the lives of 4 teenagers as they spend their first summer away from each other. They share magical jeans, which they send to each other throughout the summer. These jeans fit them all and make them look fabulous, even though they are of all different body shapes and heights. These jeans also are with them as some wonderful and life-changing events happen. A note of caution: there are some sexual encounters in the book (not very explicit), so parents may want to consider that before letting their child read it.

A good book, confusing in the start, but once you get used to the character stories jumping back and forth, it gets better.

I decided to read this series after catching a few minutes of the first movie on ABC Family. I decided not to watch the rest of the movie as I wanted to read the book series first. I had to say that I really did enjoy this relatively light story of friendship. It takes a few pages to get used to the constant jumping between characters, but that's also what keeps the pace of the story moving. Tibby's story and Lena's story are the two that interested me the most. All in all, I really enjoyed it as a nice, light, quick read! :-)

I'm glad I read this. A fast read that wasn't on a low level, and not filled with sex and drugs like other YA adults. I can see why this is a bestseller now.

So many copies of this book is available that for a long time I avoided reading it until I realized that it won several awards. Now I am a great reader of recommended reading lists and award winning books. And, this one is indeed a very good choice for young women who are beginning to make independent decisions in their lives.

Briefly, four close friends find they will spend the summer apart after having spent summer after summer together. Their friendship and bonds help them cope with their mistakes, feelings and what happens beyond their control. The theme of the traveling pants strengthens their "safe" feelings and the friendship even though they are apart. Yes, it's like magic. A warm comforting read for the young and heart tingling for adults.
