The Summer I Turned Pretty

Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty, tells the story of almost 16 year old Belly and her family and friends that spend each summer at the beach. Just moms, dads only come out occasionally and not at all this year, and the kids. Belly is the youngest and only girl so has often been excluded from the fun parties that have been happening every year. This year is different. She’s turned pretty. She’s more confident. She’s not just a girl, but almost a woman now. This is the summer she’s been waiting for. There’s crushes she’s had forever and new loves. Grudges and jealousy all set on a beautiful beach with bonfires.

Easy, fun read about a 16 year old becoming a woman. It was written from a place of truth that it reminded me of being young and suddenly being able to get the boys to pay attention.
