The Summer I Turned Pretty is the first book in the young adult romance series by Jenny Han. The series was adapted into a television series of the same name for Amazon Prime Video and premiered on June 17, 2022. The series stars Lola Tung as Belly, Christopher Briney as Conrad, and Gavin Casalegno as Jeremiah.

The Summer I Turned Pretty is a coming-of-age story about first love, first heartbreak, and the power of family. The series follows the story of Belly Conklin, a 16-year-old girl who spends her summers with her family at Cousins Beach. However, this summer Belly is turning 16 and her crush on Conrad Fisher is relentless. However, over the course of the summer, she also develops a crush on Jeremiah Fisher, Conrad’s younger brother. Torn between her two crushes, Belly doesn’t know who she should choose.


The first season of The Summer I Turned Pretty ended on some pretty huge cliffhangers. Belly is dating Jeremiah. However, Conrad finally allows himself to share his feelings for her, and the two share a kiss on the beach. And, Conrad and Jeremiah’s mother Susanna decide to try the experimental treatment to beat her terminal cancer.

But, does the future have a happy ending? If you read the book series you know we’re in for a bumpy ride. If you haven’t…buckle up because it’s about to be a bumpy ride!

Belly used to count down the days until she could return to Cousins Beach, but with Conrad and Jeremiah fighting over her heart and the return of Susannah’s cancer, she’s not sure summer will ever be the same. When an unexpected visitor threatens the future of Susannah’s beloved house, Belly has to rally the gang to come together—and to decide once and for all where her heart lies.
