This book was AWSOME!!! After reading it I wanted to read it all over again, and the sequels were just as good!! Anne B. has four characters, Carmen, Lena, Tibby, and Bridget (Bee). At least one of these girls will connect with you. Bee is really sporty, Tibby is into technology and being a little gothic at times, Lena is the artist, like me, and Carmen is the girlist and the leader type. They are spending thier first summer apart and just before they go Carmen gets the pants. They trade them around and share thier feelings about what happens durring the summer and I can't say there is a boring molment in this book. It made me laugh histerically, groan in embarrassment, cry, and I'll admit scream in frustration!! It is an AWSOME book and I think it will be a GREAT movie, however, I would recommend that moms she attend with thier teenage girls rather than the entire family because I don't feel some of the content would be appropriet for smaller children, and boys might find it boring as it is most definatly a "chick flick" The reason I am saying this is because in the book there was some brief nudity and sex. Also there was some drinking, and some language. Ohh yea and some fighting but not really!! I think that any girl that is in sixth grade or above would probally be fine unless you(the parent) have sheltered her a little too much!! I LOVED the book and I am hoping the movie will be just as good (they never are but as good as the book was it would still be really good even if it was way off!!) YOU MUST SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
