Description

1. The novel opens with a first-person narrative by Tibby. Why do you think the author selected this character to frame the story? Would you have selected another character, and if so, what would he or she say? 2. Epigraphs (short quotations) from a variety of sourcessong lyrics, remarks by real-life personalities, fictitious sayings by the novel's charactersare used to separate sections of the book. Which one is your favorite? Why? 3. Of the four girls, whom are you most like? Whose first year of college would you most like to follow? 4. "Our shared childhood is ending.

Do you think each of the girls is prepared to be away from her friends for an entire year? Whose first year do you most worry about? How would you prepare to leave your friends? 5. On page 3, Tibby compares each of the girls to a car. What kind of car would you be? Why? 6. "Tibby was a slow adjuster. In preschool, her teachers had said she had trouble with transitions.

It was the cheapest and best self-analysis around" (p. 10). By the end of the book, how has Tibby changed in her response to the new or unexpected? How have the other girls changed? Who has grown the most? How? 7. In both The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Girls in Pants , Carmen feels she doesn't belong in her family. How do her feelings differ from those of Bridget, Tibby, and Lena toward their families? Do the girls' family relationships have an impact on their friendships? Are their perceptions of their situations valid, or
