There are four girls, Lena, Carmen, Bridget, and Tibby. During the summer they all split up, and they have "magical" pants that they share to keep their tight bond. The four girls, who have been inseparable since birth, mail the pants to each other while they are apart. They experience love and loss in them, but the pants always seem to bring them good fortune in the end.
This is an excellent book for girls because the characters go through the same events as we do, and you can relate to them. I liked it because it changed scenes and people a lot, which kept it from being dull. - Hannah K.
