Girls in Pants

Girls in Pants

The third tantalising book in the story of the Travelling Pants and the four friends who wear them.

The Pants first came to us at the perfect moment - when we were heading our separate ways for the first time. It was two summers ago when they first worked their magic, and last summer when they shook up our lives once again. You see, we don't wear Pants year-round. We let them rest so they are extra powerful when summer comes. Now we're facing our last summer together. In September we go to college. And it's not like one of those TV shows where all of us magically turn up at the same college. We're going to four different colleges in four different cities. So this is really, really big. Our shared childhood is ending. We're headed off to start our real lives. Tomorrow night we'll launch the Pants on their third summer voyage. Tomorrow begins the time of our lives.

It's when we'll need our Pants the most....

The movie of the first book, 'The sisterhood of the Travelling Pants' will be released later in the year. The movie stars Alexis Bladel (Gilmore Girls) and Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia) and one of the hottest teen movies on the horizon.

Ann Brashares grew up in Chevy Chase, Maryland, with her three brothers and attended a Quaker school. She studied philosophy at Barnard College, part of Columbia University in New York City. Expecting to continue studying philosophy in graduate school, Ann took a year off to work as an editor, hoping to save money for school. Lover her job, she never went back to graduate school, and instead worked in New York City for several years before making the transition from editor to full-time writer with her first novel, 'The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants'.

Ann lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two sons and newborn daughter Susannah, who is an honorary member of the Sisterhood.
