Book Review of It’s Not Summer Without You– by Jenny Han
Barnes & Noble Overview
It used to be that Belly counted the days until summer, until she was back at Cousins Beach with Conrad and Jeremiah. But not this year. Not after Susannah got sick again and Conrad stopped caring. Everything that was right and good has fallen apart, leaving Belly wishing summer would never come.
But when Jeremiah calls saying Conrad has disappeared, Belly knows what she must do to make things right again. And it can only happen back at the beach house, the three of them together, the way things used to be. If this summer really and truly is the last summer, it should end the way it started—at Cousins Beach.
Jenny Han did it again! It’s a summer unlike any other summer Isabel (Belly) has ever had and with all the change comes endings and new beginnings. Although some are easier than others, some are just down right painful. Belly is growing up so much but at the same time she’s still so young and she finds out that it doesn’t matter how old or young you are – you will always need your mother.
As a second book to the first book – The Summer I Turned Pretty you get a real feel for what it’s like to have people in your life that are more than just friends and how much you’d do to keep them in your life. Fighting for the ones you love and having to let go of others you never thought you’d lose. I flew through this book in two days without any problems and not wanting to put it down. A perfect summer YA read series so far. On to the next one!
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars!
Thanks for stopping by!
