The Summer I turned Pretty by: Jenny Han

Publication Date:
April 2010


Some summers are just destined to be pretty 

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

My thoughts:
Belly is a girl that loves a boy who seems to have no interest. And to beat all his mother is her mother's best friend. She spend her summers, every summer with his family at the beach. Every summer it's three boys, one girl and two mother's. They just relax and have fun no "men."
One boy loves her and admits it, but she can't return his love. The other boy loves her but won't admit her feelings. 
Belly thinks and knows life is hard but when the boys' mother confesses her cancer is back and things are bleak it send everyone in a downward spiral. I would spend the time cherishing every moment, but they all fall apart.

My rating:
5 stars

It's not summer with out you
