I would have never considered reading this book, but it was actually part of a grad. class assignment. Do not discount this book, or series, because it's for young adults. You will fall in love with these characters. You will feel their joy and their sorrow. If you are a teen you will relate...if you are an adult you will remember.
Reasonably entertaining, though sometimes a bit too childish, but able to open to the reader a number of issues of teen-aged angst in a variety of circumstances.
each girl had a very different experience over there summer.
It was too much like a fairytale. Nothing in life really ever is.
The premise is good but I am not really enjoying the book. Not sure why, maybe some of the details are boring and they make feel like I am wading through minutia and not really getting much substance. I don't think I will finish it.
Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!
I read all four "traveling pants" books and enjoyed them all. I am a 50 year old female. I doubt that men would enjoy these stories, but even at my age, the author did a brilliant job of reminding the older female reader of what it was like to be a teenager. She captured the joys and sorrows of these years, the excitement of first love, the tough decisions, the issues every teenager has with parents... all-in-all a wonderful journey of a girl's coming of age. She also brought something special to the character development of each girl, and gave them all qualities that would resonate with any woman, young or old. Great narration, and excellent writing, I would highly recommend all four of these books.
