With the flurry of madness surrounding the holidays over, the next big thing to look forward to is summer. Summer: warm weather, lazy days, sunshine, summer love. Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy includes The Summer I Turned Pretty, It’s Not Summer Without You, and We’ll Always Have Summer.
For Belly, summer means Cousins Beach. Every summer for her whole life, her family has spent summers there with the Fisher family, Conrad and Jeremiah.. But this year will be different. Belly just knows it. She’s finally grown up now, and Conrad will finally notice her. She’s been in love with Conrad her whole life, but he has always treated her as a little sister. This year, everything will change.
And things do change. Now Belly has what she always wanted: a relationship with Conrad. At first, it’s everything she always dreamt it would be. But Conrad starts pulling away, and the pain is more than Belly could have ever imagined. Now all she wants is to put Conrad behind her. When Jeremiah calls to tell her that Conrad has disappeared, Belly has to decide if she’ll let him go forever, or help Jeremiah find his brother.
Belly has put Conrad behind her. She’s been with Jeremiah for two years now, and everything is great. When they decide to get married, Belly’s happiness is complete. Or almost. Because as the fateful day draws nearer, she realizes things are still unresolved between her and Conrad, and she realizes that no matter which one of the Fisher boys she chooses, she’ll have to break one of their hearts.
