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 friend's part for the summer, Carmen decides to toss them. 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 the travelling pants - the next morning, they say good-bye. And now the journey of the pants - and the most memorable summer of their lives - begins.Bidget impulsively sets off for Alabama, wanting to confront her demons about her family and avoid them at the same time. But she can't keep the truth from the pants, which refuse to fit until she's looked at the truth - in all its faces. Carmen is concerned that her mother is making a fool of herself over a man. Carmen discovers that her mum borrowed the pants to wear on a date, she's certain of it. Tibby casts off the Wallman's smock and enrols in a college film program, making new friends and a movie she'd like to be proud of, while the pants keep alive the memory of a friend who had a gift for seeing beyond apperances. Lena has spent months hiding from love, only to find that she's at last ready to put on the pants and walk headlong into romance, letting them lead her where they will.
