The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares

The first time I was ever introduced to this series is through the movie of the same name. The four female lead characters were incredibly enjoyable to watch so when I found out there was a series of  books I could not have been more pleased. Tibby, Lena ,Bridget and Carmen are the four female leading characters in the book and they have a very close bond. Their mothers met  while pregnant with each of them and as soon as they popped out they grew to become friends.
 There are a good few differences between the book and the movie but not so many that you are lost.
The bond these friends have is the most special thing about the story .The story is told in sections where we get a glimpse of each girl and what is going on in her life as the jeans pass to each of them.
Each girl documents what happened while wearing the jeans and then passes them on.  By the end of the book these are one well travelled pair of jeans and their own bond is even closer then before. A lovely story , perfect for summer reading for anyone looking for a YA read.
