The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han was a very fun read. Although there was some sadness and tension, for the most part this book was just a relaxing summer story by the waves. I just really didn’t like the way that she ended the story. It sort of ruined the vibe for me. One minute Conrad, Jeremiah, and Belly were swimming in the pool together on an August night, and then suddenly it’s December. She chose Conrad which was a let down for me because personally I thought her and Jeremiah were a much better match, and then the book ended without letting us know how Susannah was faring (did she die yet?!). Other than that though I really liked this novel. I don’t have much else to say.
