Please log in to view pricing Description Belly was ecstatic when Conrad, the son of her mom's best friend and the boy she'd loved for years, finally kissed her. But when Conrad's mom dies, he withdraws from everyone and eventually disappears completely. Not sure where to start looking, Belly and Conrad's brother Jeremiah figure Conrad's college is a good place to start- but they soon learn he's actually at the family beach house. When Belly and Jeremiah find Conrad, they realize he wasn't running away- he'd come to keep the house from being sold. Belly's romantic feelings for Conrad begin to resurface even as she's growing closer to Jeremiah, and as emotions run high, it's unclear if things will ever go back to normal-especially when a real estate agent shows up.
First love kept making me come back to this, to him. He still took my breath away, just being near him. I had been lying to myself the night before, thinking I was free, thinking I had let him go. Discuss the difference between crushes and love.
How might Belly differentiate the two? Susannah jokes about her cancer. What was the effect of this comedic moment on the characters in the novel? How did it affect you, as a reader? Compare and contrast, then come up with a list of qualities for an ideal summer romance! Discuss the ending.
What do you think will happen from here? We learn that Belly and Conrad are not together, and that Susannah has passed away. How were you affected by this beginning?
Where do you see their friendship going from here—do you imagine them staying friends like Laurel and Susannah or have they already outgrown each other? She thought she was doing me a favor. Giving up her platform sandals for the night was altruistic, for Taylor. But I was still mad. She was the selfish one. I was so angry, my hand shook when I put on my eyeliner, and I had to rub it off and start all over again.
I did it because I knew it would piss her off. Maybe they were true.
How does this change your experience as a reader? Is Belly a child, or an adult? Can she be both at one time? At what point does she grow up? What factors have accelerated or delayed her entry into adulthood?
She was the only one. And then I had a thought, clear as day. I would never be a kid again, not in the same way. That was all over now. She was really gone. I sat back down on my deck chair and popped the top off the can. It snapped satisfyingly. It was strange to be in this house alone. Not a bad feeling, just a different one. I felt older now. Fisher were drinking coffee the way grown-ups do. He looked so young, so vulnerable my heart ached a little.
Why did she do this?
Would you have taken the necklace, if you were Belly? What did you think about Belly for doing this? Furthermore, the house at Cousins has a very different feel this summer, than it has for the characters in the past. How important is setting, in fiction? How important is setting to this story? How has your opinion about Belly evolved, after reading this sequel? In what ways do you understand her better? In what ways are you disappointed, supportive, surprised, or confused by her actions in the sequel, as compared to The Summer I Turned Pretty?
But when I looked up at her face, I bit back the words and swallowed them down. She was right. Suddenly I just wanted my mother. So I said the thing I knew would hurt her most. She truly was. He had never been that way with me. But I had loved him. I loved him longer and truer than I had anyone in my whole life and I would probably never love anyone that way again.
Which, to be honest, was almost a relief. Do you believe her? What did this moment signify to Belly? To Conrad? Discuss the symbolism of the necklace. Whom do you think she will marry?
Why does Jenny Han conclude the novel in this way? We can tell a lot about a person by the company she keeps. How are the friendships similar? How are they different?
How much of what happens in this third novel is influenced by secrets? Is it ever okay to keep secrets? Is it ever okay to keep secrets from the people you love, in particular? The title evokes the warmth and comforting permanence of memories. Belly is particularly touched by her memories of growing up at Cousins Beach, especially as represented by the images she recalls of Jeremiah and Conrad.
I was a person who loved to play Remember When in my head. It scared me to think that my memories could be just ever-so-slightly wrong. How much weight can we assign to memories, as a foundation for current relationships?
What kind of value does Belly put on her memories? Is it even possible for people to control love?
Discuss what the following quote means to you, and the extent to which you agree that feelings can be safely tucked away. Describe your first love. How has this first experience shaped who you are today? They own a little piece of your heart, always. Isla and the Happily Ever After.
