Book review - the summer I turned pretty by Jenny Han

Title : The summer I turned pretty 
Author  : Jenny Han  
pages  276 
release  date : May 5, 2009
Publisher :  Simon  and schuster 
Summary :Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer--they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. 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.

          Review:  This  book is  about  Belly  (Isabelle )  and  she always  loves  summer  not  because   school is over  but  because she gets  to go  to cousins  beach  and  see  the boys  mostly  Conrad but there is  Jeremiah  and  susannah  the  mother  who is like a second  mother to Belly    , Belly has always been in love with Conrad  but he still thinks of her  as  a little sister   but this summer is  different  they are looking  at her differently   not as a  sister as  a real girl but  when she goes to a party with the boys one  night  she meets a  boy  who  is not  the fisher boys  it's  Cam  he's smart and cute and  likes  Belly   but she still likes  conrad  and  he is acting  strange   this summer  moody and weird   he keeps yelling at belly and getting drunk  but  then   Jeremiah  confesses his feelings  for belly  and  Susannah  is sick again  she  was sick a while  and now she is  sick again  and  it's the end of  the  summer  and  belly is worried it won't be the same next year if susannah doesn't live since Conrad is going to collage  and Jeremiah  wants to go to football  camp but they reassure her it will always be the same .

5 out of  5
