Belly is set to return to Cousins Beach with Conrad and Jeremiah on July 14 when season 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty premieres on Prime Video. Until then, dive into the novel that started it all, which is currently available on Amazon for under $10.

You won’t be able to put down the first book of the trilogy — no matter if you’ve watched the series or are new to the story. Consider it your summer beach read or commute book (but definitely not a coffee table book). The TV series may not have covered everything that the book details, which is why snagging a copy will be important to know absolutely every thought Belly has over the love triangle between her, Conrad and Jeremiah.

“The Summer I Turned Pretty” is the first of three books written by Jenny Han — a.k.a. the same author behind the hit series “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” which also received a Netflix movie of the same name. “Pretty” follows the story of Belly, a girl about to turn 16-years-old who “measures her life in summers,” according to the description. It’s at Cousins Beach where her mom, brother and her share a summer beach house with Susannah (her mom’s best friend) and her two boys: Conrad and Jeremiah. It’s this summer in particular that everything changes. As the boys take notice in her, a love triangle begins to form and secrets end up being revealed.
