A warm tale of teen female friendship, with a pair of magical jeans thrown in the background. I watched the movie first, and I found some differences from the original (such as Lena's love story, which is too cliche in the movie, IMHO) but I like them both. Now I'm in the mood for a new pair of jeans and the rest of the books in this series."You know what the secret is? It's so simple. We love one another. We're nice to one another. Do you know how rare that is?"
