And oldie, but goodie. Four friends headed separate ways for the summer find a magical pair of pants that fit all of their different bodies. They decide to share the pants for the summer to keep close to each other and hope the pants make some of their time apart magical.

Violence: Two old Greek grandfathers get into a fist-fight in one part of the book. Some blood is shed but only a little.
Coarse Language: Some words that carry a heafty meaning. Funny situations and totally appropriate for the problems facing the girls, but there are a few choice words.
Sexual Content: The book never goes into detail - but does give the implication of sex. And then they talk about how certain boys make out better than others. Not throughout the whole book just maybe one page in the middle.
Sexual Content: In the whole book series, there are parts when they.. you know... touch and do it...
