Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn’t look all that great; they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach. On the night before she and her friends part for the summer, Carmen decides to toss them. But Tibby says they’re great. She’d love to have them. Lena and Bridget also think they’re fabulous. Lena decides they should all try them on. Whoever they fit best will get them. Nobody knows why, but the pants fit everyone perfectly. Over a few bags of cheese puffs they decide to form a sisterhood, and take the vow of the Sisterhood of Traveling Pants. The next morning, they say goodbye. And now the journey of the pants, and the most memorable summer of their lives begins.

    " Wow...beautifully written! It will make you laugh, make you cry, make you want to yell and scream at the world, but more importantly, this book will make you think about your life and appreciate it all the more. Great job Ann Brashares! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dominica | 2/1/2014

    " An excellent, if heartbreaking, conclusion to a series that has followed a generation of readers. I've always loved Lena, but I saw a lot of myself in her in this installment... Too bad I don't have my own Kostos! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 1/20/2014

    " Excellent story that really brings these characters back to life, but opens up just a few more questions right before the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Flaherty | 1/14/2014

    " Loved it, loved the whole series. The twists in this book were unexpected but great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dena | 1/11/2014

    " I really liked this book even though its a sad story, I like how it all comes together in the end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess N | 1/11/2014

    " loved it. read it in one sitting and cried a lot. it's an emotional book with lots of sadness and joy. definitely recommend reading it, i'm tempted to reread it tomorrow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karradyne | 1/5/2014

    " I cried my eyes out. I hated it at first, but I slowly fell in love with the characters I dearly missed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeske | 12/21/2013

    " In eerste instantie (na een paar hoofdstukken) wist ik niet of ik het een leuk boek zou vinden. Nu wel, het is prachtig. Een waardig vervolg. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/8/2013

    " The four friends are all grown up! A little depressing and pretty predictable, but I did like the characters and it was an easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna Hoffman | 11/16/2013

    " it was good. it was really sad when tibby lost her life, but a lot of parts made me happy. Like when Lena got with Kostas, or when Bee found out she was pregan, or when we first met bailey. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Parker | 9/9/2013

    " Freaking depressing! It's a follow-up to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books, but this one is not the light-hearted fun of the first books. The girls are grown up, and shit gets real. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tori | 8/29/2013

    " This book was nowhere near as good as the others. It was also very slow and had parts that didn't really need to be included. Overall, I was disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jk | 8/21/2013

    " If you have read and enjoyed the Traveling Pants books - this is a must read. Just fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita | 8/11/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. It was the first of the series that I have read, so I didn't have preconceived ideas of what I thought should happen. The writing was very good and I enjoyed the characters and their different ways of handling things. I'll definitely read more by Ann Brashares! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 5/31/2013

    " Ann Brashares did a fantastic job of continuing the story and letting readers who enjoyed the first 4 see where the characters are now. The book was sad, unexpected, but felt like visiting old friends. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Belly | 5/17/2013

    " This book is amazing! Once again, Ann was able to transport us into the world of girls ... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Franxilicious | 10/19/2012

    " Was schocked at first... thinking: "no this can't be happening... what is wrong with Ann Brashares?". But as you get to the end, you understand and it makes sense. Still just sad to see Tibby go. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ali LaFleur | 9/27/2012

    " read this as the first book on my new kindle fire and enjoyed how swiftly I was able to page through entire swaths of story. I felt obligated to read this having enjoyed the series so much when I was younger but I'm glad it's over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Posner | 8/8/2012

    " I would have given this 4 1/2 stars if I was able. It was really good, appealing to my desire for escapism when I read. Twists and turns and questions answered. A good cap to the Sisterhood series. Would love to see a movie of this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaitie♥ | 5/13/2012

    " It was a good tie to the end of the book though at times the plot wasn't the fastest moving because of everyone's depression. Yet I told myself each night that I could stay up a little longer to read just one more chapter, and repeat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Downie | 4/10/2012

    " I both loved and hated this book. It was heart breaking in how perfect it was. It worked with the series as a whole. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 3/26/2012

    " I really enjoyed it, I just wished it was longer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simone Konner | 7/16/2011

    " Such a wonderful read. Pure and lasting friendships from the beginning to the end with twists in between. Highly recommend this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ronda | 6/30/2011

    " Not so much... she should have stopped at 3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 6/29/2011

    " I really enjoyed this one. I know there is a new book, but I feel like the ending in this makes it unnecessary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 6/25/2011

    " For someone totally disinterested in this series, I certainly flew through it fast enough. It was a great summer read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 6/24/2011

    " I loved this series! I just found out that there's a second movie as well, and now I want to read the book about their lives as adults- I'm so curious to see where they all end up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 6/23/2011

    " I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this series. I think I read all four in a week! I hunted down the final books at various libraries. I became very attached to seeing how the characters would end up. This last summer the girls were grown up (college age) and there was more mature content. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ciara | 6/8/2011

    " I like how it based on four girls and not just one. my favorite is bridget "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadine | 6/6/2011

    " :( I can't believe it's already the last book. I got so attached to the characters and I will miss the four girls. The only thing I didn't like in this book is the thing going on with Lena and Leo, I tought it was a bit weird and unecessary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 6/5/2011

    " An amazing way to finish the series!! I loved it just like I loved the rest! It really makes you feel like you're part of their lives and it really sucks you in so you can't stop reading it!!! I stayed up waaay later than I should've for many nights!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/3/2011

    " I wasn't all too pleased with the ending. It just sort of ended, with the girls going their seperate ways, and then what happened to the pants? They just lost them? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josette | 5/30/2011

    " Might as well continue the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 5/28/2011

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.

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.
