What started it were the pants. Not the ordinary pants though. They were special pants in a way that pants can be special, if you will. They were Carmen's pants to start out with. Fast forward to present day, where four best friends are gathered, all four filled with excitement and sadness for their summer adventures. Carmen, Lena, Tibby, and Bridget are all about to embark on their own unique summer adventures. Carmen is heading to her father's house for the first time, but only to find that things were not how they were when she left. Lena is traveling with her sister to Greece, to spend the summer catching up with their grandparents and explore the island and the residents there. Bridget is going to a super elite soccer camp designed for amazing athletes. But a cute coach might just turn things in a different direction. And as for Tibby? Well, Tibby had a summer job working at the local grocery store. But when she meets one little feisty girl, her summer gets a whole lot more interesting. So when the four best friends try on the pair of Carmen's pants and they fit EVERYONE of them perfectly, they decide to use the pants to keep in touch. The pants are sent to and from each of the girls. Happy reading!
