Very Good.

The book has some times where it might not be appropriate. But, I will let you see those parts yourself. Otherwise very inspirational, sweet, and good hearted.

Never will I allow it. . . .

It involved too much sex, and negative events. I didn't like the excuses that "they are in college so it's okay". I think that is a dumb excuse, and that the girls are horrible role models for girls. I would never let my daughter read this....

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (5):

This book is a logical and satisfying end to a successful series, though the subject matter is a better fit for teens, who will better understand what the girls are going through. The main characters continue to grow into their own unique women; as they transition to young adulthood, all four struggle with learning more about who they are, but they accept their faults, solve problems on their own, and embrace the future. There's enough plotting here to keep readers interested in these beloved character's stories -- and even the magical pants themselves go on a little adventure.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
