Girls In Pants
Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget are back in the third installment of Ann Brashares' The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. But this summer, everything is different. This is the girl's last summer before they all jet off to four different colleges. So they want it to be a summer to remember...Tibby is dreading all of the changes that are coming her way. And her friend, Brian, wants to be her boyfriend, while Tibby wants to just stay friends. Lena wants to go to art school, but her parents don't, and won't support her if she does. She'll have to make a hard decision: she should follow her heart or her parents'? Bridget's heading off to be a coach at a soccer camp in Pennsylvania, but she'll get a rude awakening when she finds out who one of her fellow coaches is! And Carmen's got to face the most challenges: her mom's going to have a baby, and Carmen's afraid that once she heads off to college, she'll be pushed out of the picture. She's also agreed to take care of Lena's cranky Greek grandma, Valia, which is going to be a lot harder than it looks, and she's pretending to be someone who she's not to someone important to her. Can the pants work their magic on these four friends? Ann Brashares' third novel is full of friendship, love, and summer fun that teens will love.
