Can summer be truly summer without Cousins Beach?
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.
Wow. Seriously, this series is getting better. Belly is back, her heart broken by the loss of Susannah, and Conrad in a way. I didn’t like every decision Belly made, but I could understand them. She was growing, but she had to stop being so impulsive. So many of her mistakes were made because she didn’t take a second to think… sigh…
Jeremiah slightly annoyed me… again… There is just something that gets on my nerves… I can’t really say what. Maybe it’s his over jealous side… I don’t know.
I like Conrad. I know he can be an ass sometimes, but I get why. I understand what that it is his way of going through his mom’s death, even if it hurts those around him. There’s just a side to him that come across as vulnerable.
I have to say that I simply love Jenny Han’s novels. They are perfect summer read, with a great mix of romance and emotional drama. I can’t wait to read the next books.
If you want to check more about her first book, I have already reviewed the first book in the series, The Summer I Turned Pretty. A series I definitely recommend for the summer!
