One girl, two boys…How can Isabel, Belly to the boys, choose as she grows up with them through one glorious summer holiday after another? Belly has always yearned for the inaccessible, cool Conrad. But what does he feel for her? And what about Jeremiah? As Belly grows up the boys attitudes change. Will she get what she wants in the end? Fuelled by romance, Belly’s transformation from the little tag along to great girl friend is also an irresistible story about the importance of family and friendships and long, sun-filled summer holidays.

Synopsis

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Everything that happened this past summer, and every summer before it, has all led up to this. To now. Every year Isabel spends a perfect summer at her family friends' house. There's the swimming pool at night, the private stretch of sandy beach ...and the two boys. Unavailable, aloof Conrad - who she's been in love with forever - and friendly, relaxed Jeremiah, the only one who's ever really paid her any attention. But this year something is different. They seem to have noticed her for the first time. It's going to be an amazing summer - and one she'll never forget...
