Description

This bittersweet novel by Jenny Han recounts the summer of Belly's 16th birthday. When she and her family arrive at the beach house that June, her longtime summer pal, Jeremiah, appears standoffish and awkward in her presence. And his older brother Conrad - her secret crush - seems distant and cold.

But her blossoming beauty isn't the only reason for their change in behavior. For as Belly enjoys the sun and surf, she'll ultimately learn the painful secret that dampens the spirit of her childhood friends.

Critiques

"Romantic and heartbreakingly real ... the beautifully written novel ... perfectly blends romance, family drama, and a coming-of-age tale - one that is substantially deeper than most." ( Library Journal)

Great coming of age story

Any additional comments?

This book was very good. The author takes you from the present to the past to give you insight on all the characters and how they grew up together.

Come on Conrad you know you want Belly

Would you consider the audio edition of The Summer I Turned Pretty to be better than the print version?

I loved both the print and audio versions. This is a book I can re-read or listen to it over and over again.

My goodness, this is terrible.

This book sets a terrible example of healthy relationships for young readers. It’s difficult to root for any of the young characters, as they’re all too self-absorbed and distracted being absolutely hateful to each other. Vapid and embarrassing.

I expected better from Jenny Han

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Maybe. It's a fun, light read, but it lacks substance.

If you’ve listened to books by Jenny Han before, how does this one compare?

I read both To All the Boys I've loved Before and the Ashes to Ashes trilogy. The Summer I
Turned Pretty doesn't compare, to say the least. I was surprised by the lack of plot. I'm pretty sure this was her first book, and she's improved tremendously since writing it.

What three words best describe Jessica Almasy’s voice?

Too many pauses. She has a nice voice; she's easy to listen to, but she takes so many unnecessary pauses. Her tendency to pause in the middle of sentences (I suppose for dramatic effect--though none is needed) makes for choppy listening. Also, in my opinion, the pauses in between character dialogue were far too long. It's a shame, because she has great potential, but I would have preferred listening to this book read by a different narrator.

Could you see The Summer I Turned Pretty being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes. I think it would actually make for an entertaining film (one of those cheesy teen rom-coms). As for the actors, a young Mandy Moore would play a good Belly. I can't decide who I'd like to see play the boys.

Good book

As a plot : i found the story was good with very relate-able characters and good dialogue
As an Audio book it was good but the narrator is so SLOW and i got bored at the middle of the book until i fast forward it into 2×

but you can read it if you like a bed time story teller

Classic

This book and series are such classic books for young adults. They are quick, cute and emotionally entertaining reads. Jenny Han’s writing style is beyond brilliant. She creates lighthearted, yet deep thoughtful stories and this is no exception.

Sweet Summer Read

I found the story to be very innocent and sweet, I enjoyed most the way the story jumped back and forth through time. The narration was great, I am a faster reader though so I listened on 1.30x speed. This would have made a great beach book or summer read.

Confused

I loved this book up until the very last chapter. The ending was very much a disappointment.

Book was annoying

Reader did well but the book is just not that great. Pretty disappointed. I had to force myself to finish it. I turned it off many times from annoyance.

Great book

Love the story, didnt like the speaker too much - she made weird breaks in between sentences.
Chapters arent in sync with audible.

One of my favourites!

Jenny Han has a beautyful way of discribing things, I felt like I plunged into her story. It starts as a Teeny-Drama but very fast, you start loving and understanding the charakters

As a german user, it wasnt to hard to follow the english version and it was a good way to practice

Jessicas voice was kind of annoying in the beginning, but i got used to it and she did a good job

All I can say is, I laughed, I cried, I loved this audiobook
