Description

From the author of Netflix’s smash-hit movie To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, this is the perfect funny summer romance for fans of The Kissing Booth and Holly Bourne.

One girl. Two boys. And the summer that changed everything . . .

Every year Isabel spends a perfect summer at her favourite place in the world – the Fisher family’s beach house. It has everything a girl could want: a swimming pool, a private stretch of sandy beach… and two (very cute) boys:

Unavailable, aloof Conrad – who she’s been in love with forever

Friendly, relaxed Jeremiah– the only one who’s ever really paid her any attention.

But this year something is different. This year, the boys seem to really notice Isabel for the first time. It’s going to be an amazing summer – and one she’ll never forget . . .

‘This book has what every girl wants in a summer’ – Sarah Dessen, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Read the next instalments in The Summer I Turned Pretty Series: It’s Not Summer Without You and We’ll Always Have Summer by bestselling author Jenny Han.

    Great Book

    If you love Sara Shepard or To all the boys I loved before you will love this.

    I related to it so much, it’s is slightly …

    I related to it so much, it’s is slightly immature at sections but she starts off as 15, and it just highlights the character growth when you look at her in the third book 🙂 And it was not what I was expecting, I was expecting fluff but it’s more than that, however, the romance wasn’t my favourite

    Wow…

    Amazing amazing amazing! A great summer book that you can relate to easily. Fell in love with the main character Belly, poor thing trying to get her older brothers best friends and family friends to see her differently that the younger sister. Easy to get into and couldn’t put it down! Didn’t know which of the boys at the start was better but becomes clearer as you read the following sequels. Worth the read and would read again! Wow…

    An amazingly sweet book !

    The book was a much easier book to read and got me out of my reading slump ! It was sweet and enjoyable and I can’t wait to read the next two parts of the trilogy.

    meh

    this book was mostly really good but at some points it can be really depressing. I am dissapointed of Jenny Han because when i picked upthis book i thought its was going to be as good as to all the boys ive loved before but it was like two steps down from that book. other than that its a really good book

    Nice coming of age book

    Lovely book. I was reluctant to read this as after the All the Boys series I didnt think Jenny Han could capture something as good. But I was wrong.

    Hmmm

    It’s taken me 12 days to read this because it was taking so long for something to happen. In the end I just decided to go for it and it still didn’t work for me. I felt nothing for the characters or their situation. I don’t think I’ll be continuing the series.I have To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in paperback too, but after this I’m not in any hurry to read it.

    Loved this so much

    My friend suggested this book to me and I was a bit spectacle on the title but I gave it a shot and I loved it. It had all the drama and toe curling scenes I wanted. I recommend this to 12+ due to themes and Language. I fully recommend this trilogy as the next to books have jemmia’s and then in the final book Conrad’s

    Meaningful story

    This book is such a cute, simple summer read. I love it so so much and took me one day to finish it, it’s one of those books that leave you with a bittersweet feeling as you’re reaching the end;you’re so excited to see what happens in the end yet you don’t want it to finish. Can’t wait for the series!!

    A perfect summer read

    After reading, and loving, Jenny Han’s series ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’, I thought I’d check out another series from the author and came across ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’.I really enjoyed Belly’s story and the love triangle blossoming between her and the two brothers. It was a really fun dynamic, being as before this Summer happened – Belly was an outsider, the ‘little sister’ they didn’t want to hang around with except when teasing her, etc. The boys treated her differently and after all those years of desperately hoping she’d be welcomed in to the group – also including her older brother, Steven – she had finally found her way in.If you love a story that has you picking a team, this one is the one – Team Conrad? or Team Jeremiah? Personally, I was definitely more #TeamJeremiah because he was the most genuine and lovely brother of the two, treating her as the best friend she had always been. Even if that meant pushing his long-lasting feelings towards her away and accepting the fact that the only person she’d have her eyes on that Summer, was Conrad.I wouldn’t say Conrad is one of those bad boys you love to hate, or hate to love, but there is some arrogance around him and he doesn’t have anyone’s best interests at heart, except his own. He spends the Summer extremely moody towards Belly, treating her like the little girl he’s always known. That being said, you could still see the care he had towards her, even if that care was only there because he thought of her as a little sister.Whilst this book was definitely a light-hearted Summer read, there was definitely a more deeper story within the families, including an illness and because of this and other things such as the teens all going their separate ways after Summer was over – you could tell that this was going to be the last time at the Beach House where everything was like every other year before. I was glad to have read little snippets of previous Summers, as it would’ve been sad to see it all go so quickly.The first instalment to ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ series was a great read, with the shortest of chapters (thank you Jenny Han!!) meaning I absolutely whizzed through this book within a day or two. I would describe it as a book that you can’t put down once you pick up, however, that being said, it will only be that type of book for you if you’re in to the cliche’s, cheesy romances, love triangles, etc. like myself! I have grown to care for every character including; Belly, Conrad, Jeremiah, Laurel (Belly’s mum), Steven (Belly’s brother) and Susannah (Conrad & Jeremiah’s mum) and can’t wait to see what awaits them next Summer!
