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 protectful 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 lived with both her parents in Washington DC until she is seven when her father moves to South Carolina. She and her mother live together in an Apartment near Wiscousin Street.

Her father usually visited her two or three times a year, during Christmas. Carmen adores her father Al (Albert). Al re-marries when Carmen is fifteen to Lydia, a ordered, perfectionist and becomes step-father to Krista and Paul.

Carmen adores and admires her father and hopes to get to Williams like him. She has his aptitude to maths.

Carmen also has relations to her father's two sisters, often described as crazy.
