The Summer I Turned Pretty is a Young Adult novel by . Belly has an unforgettable summer in this stunning start to the Summer I Turned Pretty series from the New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I've Loved Before (soon to be a major motion picture!), Jenny Han. Year after year, she's spent her summers at the beach.
And take your dirty feet off my dashboard. I wiggled my toes back and forth. They looked pretty clean to me. If you ever get your license, he scoffed. Hey, look, I said, pointing out the window.
I tried to picture them in cranberry-colored scarves and turtleneck sweaters, rosy-cheeked and standing beside a Christmas tree, but the image always seemed false. I did not know the winter Jeremiah or the winter Conrad, and I was jealous of everyone who did. I got flip-flops and sunburned noses and swim trunks and sand.
But what about those New England girls who had snowball fights with them in the woods? The ones who snuggled up to them while they waited for the car to heat up, the ones they gave their coats to when it was chilly outside.
Well, Jeremiah, maybe. Not Conrad.
Counting the days until summer again. Summer was what mattered. My whole life was measured in summers. Conrad was the older one, by a year and a half.
He was dark, dark, dark. Completely unattainable, unavailable. He had a smirky kind of mouth, and I always found myself staring at it. Smirky mouths make you want to kiss them, to smooth them out and kiss the smirkiness away. Or maybe not away … but you want to control it somehow. Make it yours. It was exactly what I wanted to do with Conrad.
Make him mine. Jeremiah, though—he was my friend. He was nice to me.
He was the kind of boy who still hugged his mother, still wanted to hold her hand even when he was technically too old for it. Jeremiah Fisher was too busy having fun to ever be embarrassed. I bet Jeremiah was more popular than Conrad at school. I bet the girls liked him better.
He would just be quiet, moody Conrad, not a football god. And I liked that.
I liked that Conrad preferred to be alone, playing his guitar. Like he was above all the stupid high school stuff. When we finally pulled up to the house, Jeremiah and Conrad were sitting out on the front porch.
I leaned over Steven and honked the horn twice, which in our summer language meant, Come help with the bags, stat.
Conrad was eighteen now. He was taller than last summer, if you can believe it. His hair was cut short around his ears and was as dark as ever.
When he was younger, it was curly yellow, almost platinum in the summer. Jeremiah hated his curls. For a while, Conrad had him convinced that crusts made your hair curly, so Jeremiah had stopped eating sandwich crusts, and Conrad would polish them off. As Jeremiah got older, though, his hair was less and less curly and more wavy.
I missed his curls. Susannah called him her little angel, and he used to look like one, with his rosy cheeks and yellow curls. He still had the rosy cheeks.
Jeremiah made a megaphone with his hands and yelled, Steve-o! I sat in the car and watched Steven amble up to them and hug the way guys do. The air smelled salty and wet, like it might rain seawater any second. I pretended to be tying the laces on my sneakers, but really I just wanted a moment to look at them, at the house for a little while, in private.

I cryed, laughed and got so excited through all the things Belly went through since she is so easy to relate to. This book is all I could think about when I wasn't reading and it is just a great book to put you in a good mood. I encourage everyone who loves teenage romance books, to read this amazing book because you will not regret it!!
I read it in one day and I am in love with these characters, the setting, wonderful scenes from their childhood and the extraordinary summer feeling it carries. Belly is our narrator, a quirky, bright girl, that takes hearts in storm I immediately liked her and was engaged in her attempt to win Conrad Fisher's heart. She tells the story about her summer in Cousins, mixed with flashbacks to former summers, summers that meant something, had something special. The flashbacks aren't thrown into the story randomly, they are perfectly integrated, always relevant to our present scene.
The word "pretty" in the title doesn't necessarily refer to a physical development or stunning beauty , it my opinion it stands for the metamorphosis a character can go through. Belly has developed physically but also grown psychically.
Now she is experiencing a whole new array of emotions, exploring her new relationships to her big summer brothers. Our male protagonists are brothers, friends, rivals.
