Girls in Pants

Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood By: Ann Brashares

Ok so I didn't think that I would like this series that much but when I opened this book and started it, I realized that I really missed these characters and it was like seeing old friends again. The author really makes you feel apart of this group of 4 girls and makes you wish even more that you could wear these magical pants. the 4 girls Tibby, Carmen, Bridget (B) and Leena have graduated from High school and have one summer left before they go their separate ways for college. Bridget has soccer camp that she is coaching and has an unexpected run in with Eric an old flame that made her life horrible after the first summer. Carmen is adjusting to her mom's new marriage and is still adjusting a bit to her dad's as well when an unexpected surprise helps Carmen see herself in a new perspective. Leena's newly widowed grandma is living with them and is causing grief in the house. But because of Leena's chance to put together a portfolio for art class she learns more about her family and feels a deeper love for them. Tibby is starting to feel that maybe being a tomboy still at 18 isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when a new crush emerges, she also has a almost fatal occurrence that makes he realize just how important her family is to her and how much she does really love them. All this mingled with the girls friendship being set in motion for the ultimate test...COLLEGE!
I really loved this book and I am excited to start the next and final chapter.
