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.

I read this book before I saw the movie and I thought the book was better than the movie. I've read all of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books and say it is a good read for all ages.

While I am well into adulthood, and this is a young adult book, I still enjoyed the story of the four girlfriends and their experiences with the shared, majical pants.

"Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" is a story of four girls who are linked together by a special friendship. They go into a thrift shop and find a pair of jeans that Lena tries on. Then, the other three girls try the pants on. Even though they are different shapes and sizes, the pants fit them all perfectly. Because of their hidden "magic" the girls decide to share the pants over the summer, by sending them to each other in the mail, since they would be traveling different places over the summer

Incredible book, a little mature for the target audience of young teens, but certainly would be enjoyed by older teen girls and young adults. I laughed, I cried, I can't describe how much I enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down. An inspiring book!

Too mature for tweens but good for older teens or adults. I didn't like it very much though, I felt just "ho hum" about it.

I saw the movie and enjoyed it so thought I would give the tape a try. I really enjoyed it. It is read by Angela Goethals and she does a great job. I highly recommend if you are a book on tape fan. This is a good story of four teenage girlfriends and the summer of their 16th +/- year.

Amazon.com's Best of 2001
They were just a soft, ordinary pair of thrift-shop jeans until the four girls took turns trying them on--four girls, that is, who are close friends, about to be parted for the summer, with very different sizes and builds, not to mention backgrounds and personalities. Yet the pants settle on each girl's hips perfectly, making her look sexy and long-legged and feel confident as a teenager can feel. "These are magical Pants!" they realize, and so they make a pact to share them equally, to mail them back and forth over the summer from wherever they are. Beautiful, distant Lena is going to Greece to be with her grandparents; strong, athletic Bridget is off to soccer camp in Baja, California; hot-tempered Carmen plans to have her divorced father all to herself in South Carolina; and Tibby the rebel will be left at home to slave for minimum wage at Wallman's.
Over the summer the Pants come to represent the support of the sisterhood, but they also lead each girl into bruising and ultimately healing confrontations with love and courage, dying and forgiveness. Lena finds her identity in Greece and the courage not to reject love; Bridget gets in over her head with an older camp coach; Carmen finds her father ensconced with a new fiancée and family; and Tibby unwillingly takes on a filmmaking apprentice who is dying of leukemia. Each girl's story is distinct and engrossing, told in a brightly contemporary style. Like the Pants, the reader bounces back and forth among the four unfolding adventures, and the melange is spiced with letters and witty quotes. Ann Brashares has here created four captivating characters and seamlessly interwoven their stories for a young adult novel that is fresh and absorbing. (Ages 12 and older)

Fun, fast read about four friends and 'magic' pants. Funny throughout, but yet poignant. I'm glad I read the book, but I can pass on the movie and the sequels.

The four friends, Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen are realistically portrayed. They each have their own adventures that reflect the challenges that their lives deliver to them, almost on a plate. The connection that the traveling pants has for the characters is a brilliant one and craftily developed by the author, Ann Brashares.
