#64: The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Belly’s never been the kind of girl that things happen to. Year after year, she’s spent her summers at the beach house with Conrad and Jeremiah. The boys never noticed Belly noticing them. And every summer she hoped it would be different. This time, it was. But the summer Belly turned pretty was the summer that changed everything. For better, and for worse.





About the Author

Jenny Han was born in Richmond, Virginia, and later studied at the University of North Carolina. She now lives in New York where she works part-time as a children's librarian, in between writing her new series for teens.

Other books of Jenny Han's I've reviewed:
My review for Burn for Burn (co-written with Siobhan Vivian)
My review for It's Not Summer Without You

REVIEW:
What a summer!
Some heartbreak happened, but in the end, I think the good outweighed the bad. For Belly, anyway.
Belly came into herself throughout the summer, and every single person noticed. It too her some time to notice though.
Conrad and Jeremiah are great characters. Conrad is broodingly beautiful, while Jeremiah is a gent. Both brothers are dreamy for different reasons.
This is a great summer read. Most of the setting is at their summer retreat. 
I had already read the second book in the series a while back, but am glad I went back to read the opening book. It made me enjoy what I knew of the characters more than I did already. With two books in the series read, I see how well developed these characters are and that keeps me wanting more.

5/5

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
