Week-END Treasure: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

Ahhhh, summer. School's out. The sun is up. Free time abounds for self-satisfying fun. Just relaxing. No worries. No cares. All the time in the world just waiting to be filled with your dreams, wants, and desires. Feel the breeze blowing and the sun warming your skin......

Okay....SNAP out of it! Summer does not officially start until June 21st (this year), regardless of what our cabin fever is telling us, or the school system dictates, BUT that does not mean we can't enjoy the weather along with a great book. The week-END treasure for this week is....

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Ann Brashares

Now some of you may be thinking....FLUFF! I will admit that it is a "lite"read, however it is very enjoyable if given the chance. It is story about life, love, friends, and all the troubles along the way. In a very realistic (if filtered) fashion, the lives of four young friends are introduced to the reader. We have...
  • Tibby - future employee of Wallman's, and underestimated video producer
  • Carmen - potential drama queen flying off to South Carolina to visit her dad
  • Lena - understated Mediterranean beauty off to see her family in Greece
  • Bridget - blonde soccer champ off to camp in Baja

They have been friends forever...but summer is sending them in different directions. With their shared fears of growing apart, how can they stay close? Enter the traveling pants! Picked up at a second hand store, their origin holds no likely appeal. The magic is in the fit! Although the girls are close, they are each different in build and yet when the pants are tried on by one and all, they magically fit each girl as if made for her alone. They develop a plan to share to pants throughout the summer along with the adventures had while they were worn. This could get interesting.....

The real storyline is from the heart about the bonds of friendship that we cultivate and how important these people become in our lives. As the first book in the series, I found it a quick but enchanting read which left me ready for the next one and the next one and the next one. Try it out this won't be sorry.

Feel free to leave your comments and feedback!
Until next time...happy reading!
