Review: The Summer I Turned Pretty

Title: The Summer I Turned Pretty
Author: Jenny Han
Publisher: Penguin
Reading Level: Young Adult

Rating: 5/5

A special Thank You to Penguin for sending me this book to review.

Publisher's Summary:
Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer -- they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

This is seriously THE cutest book! I grabbed as I was heading to bed tonight to start it, well I finished it in one sitting. LOVED it.

I wish I had had a summer like this when I was a teenager. I sort of did in my 20's when I worked onboard cruise lines cruising the Caribbean, but I wasn't a teenager.

Such a great story. There is a bit of everything! If you read one book this summer I would pick The Summer I Turned Pretty. Full of feeling and romance, as well as a coming of age tale, it makes for the perfect beach read. There is even a sequel coming out summer of 2011! I can't wait for that! But don't worry this one is all tied up nicely in the end. She doesn't leave you hanging.

Note to Parents: There is teen drinking and smoking in this book.


  1. This was my favorite read so far of the year. I read it in one night and the second book in the series, It's Not Summer Without You the next night. Wonderful, wonderful book.

  2. Book two is out now. The third comes out in Summer 2011 :)

  4. It's Not Summer Without You doesn't come out in the UK until next year, but I'll have to buy it in the US since it's out!! I totally want to know what comes next!
