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 longtimesummer 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.
I loved both the print and audio versions. This is a book I can re-read or listen to it over and over again.
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.
This is probably the one of the best books. I've read in a long time 💘
Belly has only loved two boys, Conrad Fisher and his brother Jeremiah. Now that she and Jeremiah are on the verge of a permanent commitment, Belly confronts her lingering feelings for Conrad and faces a painful reality. She must figure out which brother is her soulmate—which means someone’s heart will get broken.
I didn't read the book but the audio edition was awesome
