Book Review: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

full star full star full star empty star empty star

Lena, Bridget, Tibby, and Carmen have been best friends since birth. Now, just before they are about to spend their first summer apart, they discover a pair of jeans that miraculously fits all of them, despite their differing physiques. And not just fit -- the Pants make each girl look, and feel, beautiful and confident. They don't know it yet, but they'll need that confidence during a summer that will test them, each in different ways.

That's all the magic, if such it is, that comes from the Pants themselves -- the rest comes from the powerful love these girls share, which travels with the pants. In a solemn midnight ceremony, the kind of solemnity of which perhaps only teenage girls are capable, they make up a compact about the Pants, part of which is that they will send them back and forth among themselves throughout the summer. Thus they will be present during each girl's time of crisis and tie the strands of the story together engagingly, if somewhat artificially.

Book Review: Because of Winn-Dixie

full star empty star empty star empty star empty star

When lonely India Opal Buloni takes home a stray dog she finds at the supermarket, her whole life changes in ways she couldn't have imagined. This soothing, poignant first novel, filled with the atmosphere of a dusty Southern town, is one of the best around.

India Opal Buloni has just moved to the small town of Naomi, Florida, with her father, a preacher who "reminded me of a turtle hiding inside its shell." Her mother abandoned them years before, and Opal feels alone and abandoned in her new town.

At the supermarket she rescues a stray dog who looks "like a big piece of old brown carpet that had been left out in the rain," and names him Winn-Dixie, after the market. She soon discovers that he is great at making friends, and because of Winn-Dixie, Opal is learning to see beyond people's surfaces.

The ex-con who runs the pet shop plays music that mesmerizes animals. An woman rumored to be a witch is just an old lady who is half-blind, but can see with her heart. A pinched-faced girl harbors a tragic secret. And all are soon her friends.
