Carmen Lucille Lowell is a main character in the book and film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She is sometimes called Carma and Carmabelle (her Instant Messaging username) or carmeena in the book, and is a sensitive and caring half-Puerto Rican with a bad temper. Her parents are divorced, and she lives with her mother, Christina. She is the organized one, but sometimes she thinks too much. She is the one most insistent on keeping the sisters together through the Traveling Pants, which she first found. She is the "glue" keeping the Sisterhood together.
Carmen grew up in Bethesda, Maryland. When Carmen was seven, her father Albert walked out on her and her mother. He moved to South Carolina, but visits Carmen a few times a year. Though the divorce was hard on her, Carmen still idolizes her father and wants him to be part of her life.
Carmen has a close relationship with her mother, Christina, whom she has lived with since her parents' divorce.
Carmen looks up to her father; she wanted to follow in his footsteps and go to Williams College. However, her parents' divorce hit her hard and she is initially concerned that his marrying Lydia was an attempt to replace her and Christina with a perfect, beautiful family.
