Summary

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.

Classic

This book and series are such classic books for young adults. They are quick, cute and emotionally entertaining reads. Jenny Han’s writing style is beyond brilliant. She creates lighthearted, yet deep thoughtful stories and this is no exception.

Loved it!

I absolutely loved this book just like I loved the first book in the series. It had everything I hoped for, Jenny Han never lets you down. It made me feel happy, sad, mad and excited.
I would totally recommend this book to everyone who has read the first book in the series but also to everyone who wants to read something light and cute but at the same time something captivating.
I love these characters and I will be so sad when this series comes to an end.
The narrator was really good and I felt like she fit the part well as she sounded young, happy and lively, just how I picture Belly.
Would 100% recommend!

Story was okay.

It may be that I was to old for this series of books, but they seemed to drag in places. Some parts were really good, but others weren’t. Narration was spot on.

Great sequel

I am not an expert in novel writing but this 2d book impressed me with the development of the story. Considering 1st Book was written from a perspective of an immature teen (which was done very well as I kept thinking - gush, this girl is so self-centered & immature) and I almost gave up on it, 2d book surprised me in how things evolved. I obviously did finish 1st Book - interaction b/n characters and complexity of situation pulled me in right when I got tired of teenage rant. So 2d book was more about inner world of characters & how differently they grieve and deal with love & loss & there were many surprises. Narrator is the same as in Book 1 & conveys the character perfectly. Author also is good at leaving things at the end in a way that makes you want to crave the next book.

Very Juvenille...

This story is written well, just be warned if you like YA - this is written a little more like middle schoolers vs. teenagers. If you like younger reads, this is a good story but if you prefer older content - this would not be a good choice for you. The characters are pretty whiney and bratty.

Not planning to read third one. Just can't make it through with such young characters.

loving this series

I'm really loving this series! it's quite confusing at times with the constant time jumps back and forth between past and present without any indications but the story is so compelling that it almost doesn't matter. The narrator does a wonderful job and her voice is just perfect and animations on point! Honestly, I cannot wait to read the next book. Can this just be a summer series on TV already!
