Those who frequent my blog & follow me on twitter may have seen me mention a little known series by an author named Jenny Han. Yes?? ;-) The story of Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah at Cousins Beach starts in the first book titled, The Summer I Turned Pretty. And what a beautiful, un-put-downable story it is. It's rare I come across a story that captivates me so much that I am thinking about these characters long after I've finished reading it.
It's been a few months since I first met them, yet I still wonder - what are those crazy kids up to at the beach?! I quickly devoured the second book in the series, It's Not Summer Without You, and then moved on to the third and final book, We'll Always Have Summer. Jenny Han kept my emotions on one wild literary roller coaster ride! Never knowing which boy Belly would choose, or not choose. The story is rich with passion, conflict, love, and friendship. I was swept away by Jenny Han's writing, only to be dumped out on the sandy shores and then carried back out to sea again. This series is what sparked my love for summer reads. If you're in need of something to take pool-side this summer, then I suggest starting here. It will definitely quench your thirst!
