Summers of the Sisterhood: The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants Summary


Summers of the Sisterhood: The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares

Carmen, Tibby, Lena and Bridget have been best friends all their lives. They live in the same small American town and usually spend every moment of their long summer holidays together. The year they turn 16 is the first time they have separate plans for the summer but the girls are determined to keep in touch. Tibby buys a pair of jeans in a second-hand shop and the girls discover that the trousers magically fit each of them perfectly, despite their different figures and heights. They hit upon a wonderful plan of sharing the jeans throughout the vacation - sending them on to the next friend when they feel the time is right. From Baja California to Greece, from film-making to football, the girls - and the travelling pants - encounter first love, family upset and fatal illness. Secure in the knowledge that their friendship is constant - and the symbol of it need never be more than a parcel-delivery away - the girls survive their summer and return home with a wealth of new experiences to share. A perfect teen-chick summer read; a quirky, humorous and memorable cut above the rest.

Summers of the Sisterhood: The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants Reviews


"It may be a trick from Hollywood - to put enough momentum into a story so that nothing in it lingers for long and nothing really hurts - but it works" * Daily Telegraph *
"There is something of a good Channel 4 series in this engaging, froth-free plot . . . Good, hearty, heart-warming fare" * Guardian *
"An outstanding and vivid book that will stay with readers for a long time to come" * Publishers Weekly *
"Mentioned in Range of the best recent paperbacks for the summer holidays - only a plot precis though, no actual comment on the book" * Financial Times *
"Convincingly and honestly written, this is a book that will help girls understand a little more of the pains and hardships of teenage life, subtly dealing with issues of divorce, terminal illness and first sexual encounters" * Waterstones Books Quarterly *
