Four lifelong friends share one very special
summer. Introduced as babies who were born to mothers who met in a prenatal
aerobics class, the four grew up together and developed an enduring bond despite
their distinctly different emerging personalities. Now, after years of sharing
every triumph and loss, every wild idea and secret fear with the laughter and
love of true friends, these four young women couldn’t be closer--except that
they're about to be separated as their lives take them in different directions
for the first time. Introspective and occasionally volatile Carmen is looking
forward to spending quality time with her out-of-state dad, whom she hasn't seen
much since he divorced her mother years ago; super-confident star athlete
Bridget is heading for a soccer camp in Mexico; soft-spoken Lena, a gifted
artist as beautiful as her drawings, is set to discover her heritage--and an
unexpected romance--on a trip to her grandparents' home in Greece; and
sharp-witted rebel Tibby will reluctantly remain in town, stocking shelves at
the local discount store while working on her pet project, a video
"suckumentary" to expose what she sees as the banality of everyday life. On a
shopping trip together the day before their paths diverge, the friends find a
pair of thrift-shop jeans that amazingly fits and flatters each one of them
perfectly, even though they are four young women of very different shapes and
sizes. It seems these pants are meant for sharing and that gives Carmen,
Bridget, Lena and Tibby a wonderful idea. They decide to use the pants as a way
of keeping in touch during the months ahead, each one wearing them for a week to
see what luck they bring before mailing them to the next. In this unique way,
though miles apart, the four still experience the challenges and surprises of
life as they always have--together--in a summer they'll never forget.
