But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Belly’s life has always been measured in summers. Of course she and her brother have school the rest of the year, she has friends, she has an entire life. But summer has always been the important thing because summer means it’s time to return to Cousins Beach and the house her family shares with the Fishers.

Belly’s mom and Susannah Fisher have been friends for decades and Belly can’t think of anything more natural than spending every summer in Cousins with Susannah and her sons, Conrad and Jeremiah.

As the youngest, Belly is used to being left out or made fun of by the boys. But that’s never made her love her summers, or Conrad, any less. Almost as soon as they arrive, Belly knows that this summer is going to be different. She can feel it in the air, see it in way Conrad and Jeremiah look at her like she’s someone totally new. But every summer, even what promises to be a perfect one, has to end in The Summer I Turned Pretty (2009) by Jenny Han. The Summer I Turned Pretty is the first book in Han’s Summer trilogy.

Han’s prose is as gentle and comforting as a warm summer breeze as Belly narrates this story and shares flashbacks from some of her favorite summer memories.

The Summer I Turned Pretty is an emotional roller coaster as readers join Belly on all of the ups and downs in what becomes a pivotal summer. This book does double duty laying the groundwork for the rest of the trilogy while also offering a contained story as Belly tries to make sense of growing up, her ever-present (painfully obvious) feelings for Conrad, and the fact that summers may not stay the same for her family or the Fishers for much longer.

The Summer I Turned Pretty should be required reading for anyone who is a fan of contemporary fiction, romance, and summertime. If, like me, you first discovered Jenny because of her Lara Jean books (which begin with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before), be sure to loop back to this series because it is just as sweet, just as romantic, and maybe even more epic with one of my favorite love triangles of all time. Highly recommended.

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!
