Description-

  • 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. Belly's romantic feelings for Conrad begin to resurface even as she's growing closer to Jeremiah, and as emotions run high, it's unclear if things will ever go back to normal—especially when a real estate agent shows up. Popular author Jenny Han captures perfectly how young people think when it comes to relationships. Jessica Almasy's narration flawlessly reverberates the author's style and heartwarmingly reveals the details of the characters' relationships.

    March 15, 2010
    In this second book of the planned trilogy that began with The Summer I Turned Pretty
    , 16-year-old Belly Conklin feels displaced. Unlike years past, she won't be at the beach with her mother's best friend, Susannah, and Susannah's sons, Jeremiah and Conrad. This summer, “I wasn't in Cousins. Conrad and I weren't together, and Susannah was dead.” When Belly learns from Jeremiah that Conrad has disappeared, she immediately agrees to help; their search leads them to the beach house, where Conrad is hiding out. Belly's plaintive voice sometimes makes her sound too young, but Han realistically touches upon the characters' various reactions to grief—Belly's mother becomes withdrawn, Conrad fiercely protects the house (his father wants to sell it), Belly has trouble processing the permanence of loss—as well as Belly's emotional entanglements with the brothers (occasional chapters are told from Jeremiah's perspective, and Belly reflects on her failed romance with Conrad). Though the fate of the summer house is resolved a bit quickly, Belly's difficult relationship with her best friend and her standing with the boys hang in the balance, which should leave readers anxious for the final installment. Ages 12–up.

  • AudioFile Magazine Almasy reprises the role of Belly in this sequel to THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY, which tells the story of the summer after Belly caught the attention of her longtime crush, Conrad--the summer that everything changed. Almasy matches her tone to Belly's emotional journey after the death of her mother's best friend, Susannah. Almasy begins in hushed tones that build in intensity as the story progresses, mirroring Belly's emotions as she too struggles with Susannah's death. Interspersed chapters are told from the point of view of Susannah's younger son, Jeremiah; Almasy deepens her voice just enough to differentiate him from Belly. While this is mainly Belly's story, Jeremiah's chapters allow Almasy to explore another character. Her portrayal of Jeremiah's happy-go-lucky attitude can be infectious, even when he's struggling with big questions and a secret crush of his own. E.N. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

    Gr 8 Up-This summer, everything is different for 16-year-old Belly in Jenny Han's sequel (2010) to The Summer I Turned Pretty (2009, both S & S; Recorded Books, 2009). She always spent her summers at Cousins Beach, chasing after Susanna's two sons, Conrad and Jeremiah, and her own older brother. But Susanna has passed away, and Belly's romantic relationship with Conrad has soured since her death. Just as Belly is resigning herself to summer without her second family, Belly gets a call from Jeremiah letting her know that Conrad has disappeared from school and he needs her help to find him. The three end up back at the summer house, where they must confront their memories, their grief, and each other. Occasional chapters narrated by Jeremiah reveal his feelings for Belly, while most of the story is told from Belly's point of view. Han's touching novel paints a realistic portrait of teenage love and heartbreak. Jessica Almasy provides a perfect voice for Belly, using subtle vocal shifts to indicate clearly when other characters are speaking. Recommended for high school libraries where the previous title is popular with the caveat the this volume has some strong language and teenage drinking.-Beth Gallego, Panorama City Public Library, Los Angeles, CA
