The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

Bridget, Lena, Carmen, and Tibby had been friends since before they were born. Their mothers all took prenatal aerobics class, and they had one thing in common: due dates. During their first summer apart, they find a pair of pants that magically fit them all. Through these pants, they will be together even when they are far apart.

In this story, I loved each girl's personal qualities and how when they were together, it's like they make one complete, perfect person. I think the theme of this story illustrates that friendship is a very important part of life and that everyone needs a friend to rely on. This story makes you realize that friendship is one of the greatest gifts you can receive. -Natalie M.
