With a bit of last summer’s sand in the pockets, the Traveling Pants and the Sisterhood that wears them embark on their sixteenth summer.

Bridget: Impulsively sets off for Alabama, wanting to both confront her demons about her family and avoid them all at once.

Lena: Spends a blissful week with Kostos, making the unexplainable silence that follows his visit even more painful.

Carmen: Is concerned that her mother is making a fool of herself over a man. When she discovers that her mother borrowed the Pants to wear on a date, she’s certain of it.

Tibby: Not about to spend another summer working at Wallman’s, she takes a film course only to find it’s what happens off-camera that teaches her the most.

Listener Opinions

    " As I read this series I know I would have enjoyed this a lot more when I identified with all the teenage angst instead of with the mothers. I also would like to just enjoy the book instead of constantly asking myself when I will give these books to my daughter. Considering the relationship between Kostos and Lena and the few sex scenes she will probably discover the series herself first. The characters are widely diverse so pretty much any kid could see themselve in one of them. At its best it is a little brain candy for the teenage set, with a reasonable amount of teenage drama. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teacool97 | 2/16/2014

    " Another amazing sequel to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 1! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marisa | 2/2/2014

    " Lena's heart is broken, Bee's changed but finds letters from her grandmother ranging from 6 years ago! Tibby discovers more about herself and friends and carmen's dealing with her mother. So much going on. It's a good book but it's those kinds of books that just, you want to change the character back to the way they were. We'll have to see for the third book, Girls In Pants!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandi | 1/24/2014

    " I started the Pants series because my 11 year old daughter asked if she could read it. She whizzed through the first three books on her summer break and I trailed behind. I appreciate many aspect of Brashares writing. She manages to include painful and real topics but she treats them with care and respect. It is a delightful series about true friendship. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Bielski | 1/5/2014

    " This was my favorite of the traveling pants series. I think the characters matured and were more developed. I really liked each story even more than I did in the first one - it was fun to see where they went/what happened to them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maja | 5/23/2011

    " More like 3½ stars. This book was slightly darker and more grim than the earlier one, but it sort of gave it an edge. It certainly made me want to read the next one as well. I was, though, a little sad that the pants sort of fell into the background. But oh well, they were still there! "

    " I liked this book even more than the first one it was great "
