Book Review

Synopsis: The girls are at it again with their magical jeans. Another exciting summer of adventures and self-discovery awaits.
Readability: Easy peasy. UNLESS you haven't recently read the first book (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.) I had trouble keeping track of some of the secondary characters and had to consult Lauren and Mandi occasionally.
Predictability: Oh, what do you think? It was exactly what I expected.
Couldn't Put it Down Factor: I had no trouble putting this one down.
Recommend it?: Oh, sure.
Overall Rating: Three stars. Middle of the road. I've found that there are very few things that unite a room of young women more quickly than asking, "Have you read the 'Pants' books?," because everybody--and I mean EVERYBODY has. So...if you are one of those people, I'm sorry. I just thought it was, "eh." I mean, I'm glad I read it, but I can't say I'm better for it. How's that for lukewarm sentiment?

Yeah, that's pretty much how all of them are. Better than the movie though! I hate it when they change so much when making books into movies!

Wow... I've never even HEARD of the 'pants books'; where have I been? :-) Bring up Ted Dekker at a chatty party though, and I'm all in... Hmm.
