The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a lovely novel about the power of friendship between girls. This story tells of the first summer that four best friends are separated from each other. Although they are sad and even somewhat frightened about not being together, a pair of magical pants keeps them connected and fits each of their different body types beautifully. Throughout the summer the girls fall in and out of love, go through life changing experiences, and yet still continue to keep their friendship throughout the course of the novel. I especially enjoyed reading this book because it is a very quick and easy read, and the setting is in Rockville and Bethesda where the author grew up. This makes the book even more special to those in our area than to other readers around the world as we can see with our eyes the places that the girls live and travel throughout the novel.

The Second Summer of the Sisterhood is even better than the first book as the characters begin to grow and develop into young adults . Lena meets Kostos again and their love begins to flourish, while Carmen seeks to destroy the love her mother has finally found. Tibby faces her fears of speaking about her deceased friend Bailey and Bridget faces her ghosts of the past and begins searching for answers. This is a lovely and brilliant novel filled with the ups and downs that most people will experience in life. It teaches you that fighting through rather than anger is the best way to face bad times as well as to enjoy every good moment in your life. If you have read the previous book this is a must read to find out about the future of these four girls lives.
