Description

Belly was ecstatic when Conrad, the son of her mom's best friend and the boy she'd loved for years, finally kissed her. But when Conrad's mom dies, he withdraws from everyone and eventually disappears completely. Not sure where to start looking, Belly and Conrad's brother Jeremiah figure Conrad's college is a good place to start- but they soon learn he's actually at the family beach house. When Belly and Jeremiah find Conrad, they realize he wasn't running away- he'd come to keep the house from being sold. Belly's romantic feelings for Conrad begin to resurface even as she's growing closer to Jeremiah, and as emotions run high, it's unclear if things will ever go back to normal-especially when a real estate agent shows up. Popular author Jenny Han captures perfectly how young people think when it comes to relationships. Jessica Almasy's narration flawlessly reverberates the author's style and heartwarmingly reveals the details of the characters' relationships. "Flashes of humor, realistic . dialogue and growing-up moments both painful and authentic create a convincing and poignant read."-Kirkus Reviews

Professional reviews

"Almasy reprises the role of Belly in this sequel to THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY, which tells the story of the summer after Belly caught the attention of her longtime crush, Conrad--the summer that everything changed. Almasy matches her tone to Belly's emotional journey after the death of her mother's best friend, Susannah. Almasy begins in hushed tones that build in intensity as the story progresses, mirroring Belly's emotions as she too struggles with Susannah's death. Interspersed chapters are told from the point of view of Susannah's younger son, Jeremiah; Almasy deepens her voice just enough to differentiate him from Belly. While this is mainly Belly's story, Jeremiah's chapters allow Almasy to explore another character. Her portrayal of Jeremiah's happy-go-lucky attitude can be infectious, even when he's struggling with big questions and a secret crush of his own. E.N. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
