The Pants first came to us at the perfect moment. That is, when we were splitting up for the first time. It was two summers ago when they first worked their magic, and last summer when they shook up our lives once again. You see, we don’t wear the Pants year-round. We let them rest so they are extra powerful when summer comes. (There was the time this spring when Carmen wore them to her mom’s wedding, but that was a special case.)

Now we’re facing our last summer together. In September we go to college. And it’s not like one of those TV shows where all of us magically turn up at the same college. We’re going to four different colleges in four different cities (but all within four hours of one another—that was our one rule). We’re headed off to start our real lives.

Tomorrow night at Gilda’s we’ll launch the Pants on their third summer voyage. Tomorrow begins the time of our lives. It’s when we’ll need our Pants the most.

    " Again I like the story and the series in general "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emma M. | 2/12/2014

    " I did not like this book nearly as much as the previous two. Everything felt a little flat to me and it was seriously unrealistic. I did not feel like the characters really grew at all in this book and it feels like a filler. I'm hoping that means the fourth book is better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 2/12/2014

    " Love these "easy" reads! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 2/7/2014

    " This was a very good book, but I enjoyed to first two more. I think the first two of this series were the best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caitlin | 2/1/2014

    " Ok, nowhere near as good as the first book, though "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candy Boisvert | 2/1/2014

    " I can't resist the pants! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faith | 1/24/2014

    " This book is the third book in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," series. It was entertaining as usual, but I thought this was the least satisfying book out of the four. The first and last books had deep spiritual meaning to them, but the second and third, including this one was a bit shallow. Its written for a teenage girl. There are some mature themes. I enjoyed the book, although it wasn't my favorite. My favorite character was Paul, because he is the kind of person of I would want to be. I give this book four stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisey | 1/21/2014

    " another sisterhood book, read it last year "

    " Love this series. The 3rd summer was soooo good. Can't wait to read the 4th one, and then watch the movie! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/8/2014

    " I've liked all of the Traveling Pants books, but so far this one is my favorite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie Harris | 12/28/2013

    " The third summer, the summer before college. The girls prepare for college, have some new and old romances, and keep the spirit of the pants alive. "

    " a tale of the power of friendship "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily Peery | 11/26/2013

    " I became less thrilled with these books as they went on. Fun to engage in teenage drama, but after a while enough was enough. Also, I read all 4 books in 3 days, so I guess that's what you get. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellon | 11/5/2013

    " Brashares does it again! The girls continue to grow and learn throughout the third book in the sisterhood. I think I will love this series forever, no matter how old I get :) "

About the Author
Author Ann Brashares

Ann Brashares grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, with her three brothers and attended a Quaker school in the DC area until majoring in philosophy at Barnard College. Expecting to continue studying philosophy in graduate school, she took a year off after college to work as an editor, hoping to save money for school. Loving her job, she never went to graduate school, and instead, remained in New York City and worked as an editor for many years before making the transition from editor to full-time writer. She is now the author of the phenomenal five-million-copies-selling Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, and New York Times bestselling adult novels The Last Summer (of You and Me) and My Name Is Memory. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and their three children.
