The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants

Best friends, Carmen, Tibby, Lena and Bridget have known each other since they were babies and they usually spend their summer vacations together. This summer, however (in the year they turn sixteen) the girls separate to have individual adventures. Before each girl leaves, they promise to keep in touch and they also make a pact regarding a pair of jeans that Tibby recently bought at a second hand shop. The jeans fit each girl perfectly, even though the girls have very little in common, physically. To help them keep in touch, the girls decide that they will share the pants for the summer, wearing them and then sending them on to one of their friends after a week. From Baja California to Greece, the girls (and the pants) experience love, family trauma and fatal illness. They survive their summer and return home very different people, determined to stay friends forever.
