Description

This bittersweet novel by Jenny Han recounts the summer of Belly's 16th birthday. When she and her family arrive at the beach house that June, her longtime summer pal Jeremiah appears standoffish and awkward in her presence. And his older brother Conrad-her secret crush-seems distant and cold. But her blossoming beauty isn't the only reason for their change in behavior. For as Belly enjoys the sun and surf, she'll ultimately learn the painful secret that dampens the spirit of her childhood friends.

Professional reviews

"Isabel (Belly) revels in summer. For as long as she can remember, her family has spent the summer at the beach with her mom's friend, Susannah, and her two sons, Conrad and Jeremiah. Belly is convinced that this summer, the summer of her sixteenth birthday, will be the best yet. Jessica Almasy is convincing as the na•ve Belly. The angst and insecurity embedded in Belly's character resonate in Almasy's voice as she catches us up on summers past through a series of flashbacks. As we learn of past crushes and kisses, Belly stumbles through the complexities of her current feelings for both Conrad and Jeremiah. Then there's a bigger challenge for the families to face as the summer draws to a close. E.A.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
