What I’d pay for this book: $8
To sum it up: Four lifelong friends are spending their first summer apart and agree to keep in touch by sharing a seemingly magic pair of jeans between them.
An oldie but goodie.
This is not a new book, but I haven’t read it in years and I picked it up last minute from the library before traveling for the holidays. I think it probably qualifies as chick lit, but the supportive friendships between the girls and their individual struggles are poignant and appropriate for young and old readers alike. Having four different main characters with very different personalities and struggles makes the book accessible to a wide audience and allows readers to have their own favorite plot lines and characters. Best part is, this is the first in a series that has already been completed, so if you haven’t read them yet and are interested, you won’t have to wait to read the entire series! Got to love when that happens.
Bottomline: This is a light and fluffy summer read aimed at young girls, but as I mentioned before, older audiences would enjoy it too. The stories are basically coming of age stories, but the four intertwining stories and the unifying friendship really bring the story together and make this a great read. I got this with no wait from the LA Library.
