Four friends decided to share a pair of magical jeans during their first summer apart.

Book Talk:
Would you be able to share a pair of magical jeans with your closest friends? What if they made you look great no matter what type of shape and size you have? When four best friends discover a magical pair of jeans in a thrift store, they decided to share them over their first summer apart. They will mail each other the magical pants. Bridget will be off to soccer camp, Lena will be in Greece, Carmen will be with her dad in South Carolina, and Tibby will be left home without her friends. The girls will not only learn what a summer will be like with the sisterhood being seperated, they will also discover that their experiences, loyalites, and friendship will be able to endure, despite the fact that they aren't able to see each other.
