The members of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants graduate from high school and spend their last summer before college learning about life and themselves.
Bee, Carmen, Lena, and Tibby are about to be swept into the exciting, sometimes worrisome, beginnings of adulthood. Each girl is headed to a different college: Brown, Williams, RISD, and NYU await them. But before they go, this special summer holds unknown possibilities and experiences for each girl, some difficult and painful, others exciting. Bee must face a boy from her past with a maturity and levelheadedness that she didn't know existed, while Carmen feels like she's making the wrong impression on a stranger she meets in the hospital. It's time for Lena to leave the nest, and that means challenging herself to make the right decision. And Tibby is having some serious trouble coming to terms with her feelings about Brian. All four bravely meet their challenges head-on, taking comfort in, as always, the Pants. This is the third book in the best-selling Sisterhood series.
