Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Well, I just got back from watching a preview of the movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and it was great! Of course it had been a few years since I read the book but I felt the movie followed the book fairly well. Watching the movie with two other librarians, we felt like we needed to identify ourselves as librarians so people didn't wonder why we were there without any teens!

The movie seamlessly follows the ups and downs of the four main characters. One of the best storylines follows Lena as she spends the summer in Greece and falls in love with a handsome Greek college student/fisherman whose family, unfortunately, has a conflict with hers so she has to date him in secret. The country of Greece looks beautiful and made me want to go there.

My other favorite story followed the blond, beautiful Bridget in Baja, California at a soccer camp where she pursues a handsome coach.

The story is a lot of fun and it was really great to get in on a movie a week early. Read the books and then see the movie.
