If it had been a novella featuring only Tibby, I might have found it a lot better, maybe even given it four stars. I have long since wished the media would paint cancer in a different light, such as this book does. Maybe it was realistic, but if it is, I didn't grow up with girls like that. Considering Tibby, she'd probably go with none at all. The pants being a symbol in this story was a really honest yet fun take on The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a novel I really should have read back in high school! Whoever they fit best will get them. The This book took me completely by surprise.

Lena and Bridget also think they're fabulous. I thought it was a bit clunky with adverbs and adjectives galore, and excessive use of dialogue tags when they weren't really needed.

It drastically altered the plotline following Lena and made her story the exact opposite of the book, omitting the presence of her sister, Effie, on her trip to Greece, and changing the development of her relationship with Kostos. They pretended to want to work on a history project or volunteer on your blood drive committee to get your attention.
