The Summer I Turned Prettyby Jenny Han
Synopses & Reviews
andlt;bandgt;andlt;BRandgt; Some summers are just destined to be pretty andlt;BRandgt; andlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; 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.
Belly spends the summer she turns sixteen at the beach just like every other summer of her life, but this time things are very different.
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.
