In the fourth summer of the sisterhood, each girl has new experiences. They have only phone calls, e-mails, and the Traveling Pants to tie them together, until Lena’s sister loses the Pants in Greece. The crisis brings them all together. They finally realize that the Pants are not really important.

This is another great installment in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. I would recommend it to anyone– but it’s probably best to have read the other books or at least seen the film first.

This series deals a lot with romance and family relationships, great for students who love gossip and boys.

With a bit of last summer’s sand in the pockets, the Traveling Pants and the sisterhood who wears them—Lena, Tibby, Bridget, and Carmen—embark on their second summer together.

I would recommend this book to anoyone whose read the first one or seen the movie. The characters are realistic and their stories are very addicting, which is why it’s good there are 5 books in the series! A word of caution– maybe don’t read this in public spaces. It’s a tear-jerker in more than one place.

The story is about four very different girlfriends who are traveling separate ways for the summer. Lena goes to Greece to visit family, Carmen attends a theatre camp, Bridget travels to Baja for soccer camp and Tibby stays home and films a documentary with a new friend who suffers from cancer. The girls come across a pair of jeans that magically fit them all, they take this as a sign of their friendship. They send the pants to each other during the summer telling their stories of adventures and challenges. The girls overcome difficult life experiences throughout the book from death of a friend to becoming a woman.

The book is great for students to read about four different empowering young girls. The author describes many emotional events and challenges adolescents face early on in life. The book exposes young readers to new vocabulary and has quotes from famous authors before every chapter.
