This was amazing. GO JELLY! I think I liked To All the Boys better.

Reading this right now! Will include star rating when I am done.

Every summer, Belly goes to Cousins Beach. There lives Susanna, Belly's mother's best friend who is basically Belly's second mother. Susanna has two boys: Jeremiah and Conrad. Since the beginning of time, Belly has had a crush on Conrad. However, both brothers view Belly as a little sister- not a girlfriend. That all changes one summer, though- the summer Belly turns pretty. Both boys notice it. BAM! Suddenly Belly is pretty. Like, girlfriend pretty.

A lot of my friends recommended this book to me, and I decided to give it a shot. I'm not a big fan of romantic books, but I still think it was really good.

this book was okay. i didn't like it very much because i really wish that the main character would have been nicer to her best friend, and the brother. other than that, i can definitely relate to the main character.

i love it its so romantic and the characters have a lot of good feelings that u can act like your in the book

This whole sires is amazing! I would recommend !

This book is a tangled mix of emotions, all put into one summer, experienced by teens, friends since children, trying to enjoy the summer, as it may be the last they all are together, as the boy's mom has breast cancer, and won't go for treatment. She wants to enjoy life while it lasts, as life and not in the hospital. All while this is going on, Belly is trying to find herself a boy. A great book, that shows what it is like to have a crush, yet be still alone, or to be turned down.
