Publisher's Summary

Belly has an unforgettable summer in this stunning start to the Summer I Turned Pretty series from the New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (now a major motion picture!), Jenny Han.  

Some summers are just destined to be pretty.  

Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

FOR TEENS

Listen to me. This book is for teens. If you are not a teenager, do not waist a credit on this book.

Why is the narrator laughing the whole time?

I couldn’t even finish it - the narrator says everything with a giggle in her voice regardless of the tone of the conversation. It’s obnoxious and grating on the nerves.

Narration was annoying

Loved the story but hated the narration, she laughs when she reads the story even during the serious parts. Takes away from the story!

Narration Blew It

The performance by the narrator made the book so tough to get through. The reader’s tone never felt like how the author intended the character’s to say things.

I love this book

I love this book so much and I’ve read it so many times. I find my self relating to belly more and more each book. I choose to get these so I could hear the actors voices before they play them in the series. I was not disappointed. They honestly sound how I thought they would sound. I’m so excited for the series and can’t wait to watch it!!!❤️❤️

Love it!

Honestly, I’m not an OG fan. I watched the series, loved it and decided to listen to the books. Imagine my surprise the actress from the show narrated it. She did a wonderful job and the story is simply lovely.

Nice book

I enjoyed listening to the book, probably because I am more into fantasy and and romcom I wouldn’t enjoyed reading it.

The narrator is very good.

It was a very quick audio and I am already looking to get the second to see how the story end.

Unpopular opinion

It seems I am in the minority but I just didn't love this book like I thought I would after reading others reviews. The story really dragged on nearing the end - (lots of irrelevant information and conversations), and the characters lacked.... something.... maybe I am the wrong demographic but it was just too 'teen' for me, meaning a lot of the storylines were irritating and immature.
In saying that, I loved listening to Lola's voice as the narrator and I am sure teens & preteens would enjoy this a lot more than me!

Had my 14 year old reading books again

I listened to this after my daughter binge read the book - she hasn’t read a book in years and this one she couldn’t put down. Now she is onto her next book and asking for more books for her birthday. It is a great teen read - I enjoyed listening to it

Cruisey storyline

I enjoyed the book, it had a cruisey storyline, but lacked a little substance. The narrators voice really suited the character though.

So perfectly simple. The timelapse’s in the story make you fall in love with each character. I can’t wait to read the next week.
