Book vs TV Show: The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Before To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han wrote The Summer I Turned Pretty, which released in 2009.

We first read these books over a decade ago and quickly became invested in this summer story about Belly Conklin, who falls in love with two brothers named Conrad Fisher and Jeremiah Fisher.

Belly measures her life in summers, always counting down the days until June when she can go to Cousins Beach. But everything is different this summer.
