Girls in Pants: Third Summer: Review




Best buds Tibby, Carmen, Lena and Bridget are back with their magical pair of shared jeans in Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood. Each summer brings new and difficult challenges, as the perennially separated friends discover afresh this last season before college. Tibby struggles with the idea of close friend Brian becoming her boyfriend, and their fragile relationship is soon tested by a tragedy in her immediate family. Carmen doesn’t know how to react when she finds out that her middle-aged mom is pregnant, and Bridget is unpleasantly surprised to be reunited with the boy who broke her heart two summers ago. Finally, Lena, still coming to terms with the loss of her first love, tries to convince her strict father that art school is a better career path than Greek restaurant management.

But through every crisis, each girl is assured of the love and support of the created sisterhood when she pulls on the denim armor of the cherished, and by now, a bit fragrant ("Rule # 1. You must never wash the Pants.") Traveling Pants.

Ann Brashares has done it again, and yes most of you already know this, because I am ubber late reading this series. And to that I say, better late than never! I loved this book. I know I have already said this in the other review, but these books really take me back to my close group of friends when I was younger.

Ann Brashares is a whiz at getting you to remember the days, while loving the characters you are reading about on the pages!

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars!

This book falls into these two reading challenges, check them out to see my progress.

Happy Reading!

You know with all the praise and attention this series got, I was always wary about picking it up. But I think it's time that I finally do.

I have heard good things about this book. My daughter tried to read the first one, but I think she is still too young to appreciate it yet. She is 12. Maybe she can read it when she is older and like it.

Also I just wanted to let you know that I gave you an award. It is the Proximidade Award. Come on over at see what it is all about
