The Summer I Turned Pretty

The Summer I Turned Pretty - Jenny Han It's 12:25 A.M. and I just read straight through The Summer I Turned Pretty. This is one of the best chick-lit books I have ever read. It ranks right up there with my favorite Sarah Dessen and Meg Cabot books. I can't get enough of Belly and the boys and I am dying to dive into It's Not Summer Without You.Belly lives from summers. Every year she looks forward to the months she will get to spend at the beach house with her mom, brother, Susannah, Jeremiah, and especially Conrad. Belly has always been in love with Conrad but he has never shown interest in her. This summer is different though. This is the summer Belly turned pretty.Ahh! Conrad and Jeremiah are amazing. I will take whichever one Belly doesn't want. Conrad was dark, brooding, and mysterious whereas Jeremiah was an open book. Personally, I loved Jeremiah. Conrad was a little too moody for me. Honestly though I could not pick which one is better for Belly. She was a great main character and I really liked her. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.The plot was a bit typical. There didn't seem to be a lot going on in the beginning but the book did not drag at all. I could not stop reading it. In fact, once I started it, I didn't put it down once. Jenny Han is a master story teller.Overall, The Summer I Turned Pretty is a spectacular book and if you haven't read it yet, now is the perfect time.
