The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Reviewed by L. Bauer, May 2019

Can a childhood romance grow into a teenage romance?  Belly and her family always go to Cousins Beach for the summer.  Cousins Beach has three things that home doesn’t have: the beach house, Susannah, and Conrad and Jeremiah.  Belly has had a crush on Conrad since they were little. Will this finally be the summer that their romance works?  Will her brother or Jeremiah or some other girl get in the way? Jenny Han takes you on a journey of the summer with Belly in The Summer I Turned Pretty.  If the teenage girls liked the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series, they will definitely enjoy this series as well!
