First Lines Friday...

 "Once upon a time there was a pair of pants. They were an essential kind of       pants --- jeans, naturally, blue but not that stiff, new blue that you see so often on the first day of school. They were a soft, changeable blue with a little extra fading at the knees and the seat and white wavelets at the cuffs."

           ... The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares

This book was published just over 20 years ago and I still remember the magical feeling it gave me as I read it. It's about friendship, growing up, and life in general as the summer whisks 4 BFF's into adventures apart from each other, but linked by a pair of blue jeans they share. After the success of this first book, there were 3 more books to follow, a movie and then books "related" to the story, all by Ann Brashares. I only read the first book and never got around the other books, but if you haven't read this book and you're a girl at heart or remember those summers you grew up to be a woman, you should read this book! 

Published by Delacorte Press a division of Penguin Random House.
