Book Summary

In the book, The Summer I Turned Pretty, Belly is the main character. Belly is an average 15 year old facing minor life struggles. Every summer Belly, her brother Steven, and her mother Laurel go to Laurel's lifelong best friend, Susannah's beach house. Susannah has two sons, Conrad and Jeremiah. Belly has always loved Conrad, and says "even when she marries and has children, a piece of her heart will belong to Conrad." Conrad is 2 years older than Belly and still sees Belly as a child. Will feelings change between the two, or can other companions change their feelings towards each other completely?

My Personal Review

This is by far my most favorite book I have EVER read. This book relates to me in a way, because I have felt feelings for one of my brother's friends before. I think this book is an amazing summer-loving type of story. If you love teen love stories, then you will fall in love with this one! I could not put down the book!
