Summary Via GoodreadsBelly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer--they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Author: Jenny Han
Genre: realistic fiction,young adult, romance,contemporary,chick lit
My Rating: ★★★☆☆
*sighs* yay! ok guys i think i'm ready to make a book review now... (still grinning from the Iron Knight's book Cover)
I decided to take a break from reading YA fantasy novels and decided to go for realistic fiction/ chick lit novels since i really miss reading books of those genre, since this book seems to be creating a buzz on goodreads and it seems like it's a very quick/light read kind of book so i decided to try it.
first thought that popped in my mind when i read the book title erm... ugly duckling kind of girl who suddenly had a sizzling summer romance cause she magically transformed in to beautiful swan. was my prediction right? ahm... yes.. but she didn't just get one guy falling for her but 3 guys. wow! what a nice Summer that is. :)
first couple of pages of the book reminds me of If I stay by Gayle Forman. because of the reminiscing part , Belly kept on reminiscing her Summer she spent with the Fisher Brothers (Conrad and Jeremiah) on how she fell head over heels with Conrad how her heart broke when Conrad was not that really in to her.
this book is not actually just about romance and summer hook-ups but basically the added stuff here is the family ties and bonds and also about friends, and i don't know i'm just so confused on whose guy i'm rooting for Belly is Con,Cam or Jere.... i'm actually still up for the next 2 books, hoping it will be better than this one. :)
