During the summer, each girl had to come to grips with personal challenges. How did the pants help them face those difficulties? How did being apart help the teens to mature?

Bridget uses athletics as one way to deal with the loss of her mother and her father’s distant behavior. What other kinds of crutches do people use to avoid heartache, disappointment and loss?

This movie portrays the strong friendship shared by the girls despite the differences in interests, background and body shape. What are the things that hold them together? How do their differences benefit their relationship? What things do you share in common with your best friends? What things are different?
