|Plot Summary of Girls in Pants|
|"This book is a follow-up to the very popular Ann Brashares novels "Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants" and "The Second Summer of the Sisterhood." The book follows the four inseparable friends Tibby, Carmen, Lena, and Bridget during the summer before they head to college. The narrative shifts each chapter, following a different one of the girls, but only the prologue and epilogue are in first person.
Bridget is at soccer camp in Pennsylvania, and reunites with the young man whom she slept with two summers ago. Bridget is ashamed of how forward she was before, but it soon becomes clear that the two still have feelings for each other. Carmen is working as a “babysitter” to Lena's Greek grandmother. She is also dealing the fact that her mother is just remarried and pregnant, and that a handsome hospital volunteer thinks she is fabulous. Lena is working hard to earn an art scholarship after her father refuses to support her at Rhode Island School of Design, and is also coping with last year's heartbreak. Tibby is learning to take risks and slowly accepting the fact that she is in love with her best friend.
