Publisher's Summary

This bittersweet novel by Jenny Han recounts the summer of Belly's 16th birthday. When she and her family arrive at the beach house that June, her longtime summer pal, Jeremiah, appears standoffish and awkward in her presence. And his older brother Conrad - her secret crush - seems distant and cold. But her blossoming beauty isn't the only reason for their change in behavior. For as Belly enjoys the sun and surf, she'll ultimately learn the painful secret that dampens the spirit of her childhood friends.


What the Critics Say

"Romantic and heartbreakingly real ... the beautifully written novel ... perfectly blends romance, family drama, and a coming-of-age tale - one that is substantially deeper than most." ( Library Journal)

I love this series so much.

I don't know how many times I've read this book since it was published but it feels right to re-read and re-listen to this series every spring when I know summer is just around the corner. I love the narrator's voice, her voice is how I imagine Belly's voice to be and she does bring the story into life with her narration. I totally recommend this audio book and I hope you'll love it as much as I do.
