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.

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

I'm not a sucker for romance.

I'm not a sucker for romance, but this drew me in. I wasnt at all quite sure from the beginning, but the longer I listened the more I enjoyed it. The reader delivered an excellent image of the characters, and her performance left me with me wanting more.

at what age.....?

enjoyed the suspense and going back & forth of the different ages. Also how it went into many realistic family problems & how the different family members handled the situations.

Reader's thoughts

I picked up this book because I have read a couple of other books by Jenny Han. When I was a couple chapters in the book I honestly thought It was going to be about a summer beach house and a love triangle story but the plot took an unexpected turn and the ending was quite satisfying to me. Besides that I could relate to a couple several moments that the character(s) had. I love how Jenny Han can describe those special/ weird feeling moments where one's stomach does all these flips and our checks get flustered and all words are lost. Had me curious and thinking about the ending. Will most likely pick up the second book in this series to see the outcome.

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
