The love triangle of Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah captured our hearts.
Forever YA Fiction
If you've read the other two books in the Summer series by Jenny Han, you'll appreciate that we finally get closure in the final book in the series.

Books as beautiful as this are few and far between, I can't even remember the last time I read an ending as good as this one!!!

** MAJOR SPOILERS of `We'll Always Have Summer' **

Belly made her choice, and she chose Jeremiah. Conrad didn't want her, may never have loved her, despite her ages-old devotion to him. But Jeremiah - he was always there, and Belly finally realized that. They have been together for two years now. Two perfect years of contentment and love, spent at the same university and heading in the same, permanent, direction.

But when that love is tested by a hurtful mistake, Jeremiah takes drastic measures to keep Belly. A proposal on the back of an apology, and suddenly Belly finds herself growing up faster than she may be ready . . .

`We'll Always Have Summer' is the final book in Jenny Han's wonderful `Summer' trilogy.

I wanted this finale to go out on an explosive BANG - instead I got lukewarm and slight disgruntlement with this, the final instalment to a wonderful contemporary romance series . . .

The book kicks off with a betrayal. Jeremiah does something not unusual, but still heartbreaking and disappointing. What follows is an appalling marriage proposal (on the back of an apology over a meaningless and regrettable one-night-stand). And Belly accepts. At the tender age of eighteen, Belly decides to marry Jeremiah start a life with him. But her mother's adamant disappointment in the whole affair is a tragedy, and Belly escape to Susannah's summer house to finish planning her wedding (with just two months preparation before the big day!). But when she arrives at the summer house, she discovers a live-in resident in the form of Conrad, home from California and his premed studies.

Ahh. It's spring finally and though this is the perfect beach read, love is in the air. If you've read the other two books in the Summer series by Jenny Han, you'll appreciate that we finally get closure in the final book in the series. Belly, now in college and known as Isabel, has been dating Jeremiah for two years and though the course has not always been smooth, it's been pretty good and they are in love. So when they decide to get married they can't understand why everyone is so against it. Didn't everyone expect her to marry one of the Fisher boys and everyone knows you can't count on Conrad. The obvious choice is Jeremiah. Isn't it?

Okay, you know that much from the book jacket so no spoilers there. This book explores Belly's and Jeremiah's relationship and a few bumps they face in it leading up to the big question. Then all the problems that question causes. Jenny Han writes that part of the book-the headlong rush into marriage just like that. There is a flurry of planning and questions and troubles and the book rushes too so that you can feel the underlying panic, maybe, that both Belly and Jeremiah feel to get it over and done with. Belly wants to prove that she loves Jeremiah. And maybe Jeremiah wants her to say "I do" before his brother can enter their lives again. For some reason there is a sense of urgency and as a reader, I felt it too, rushing through the book as I read. Yes, Belly loved Con, when she was younger. He was her first love, but hey we all remember our first loves. Some of us fondly, some not so fondly. But, they have a part of our hearts because they were the first to break them. This was true with Con. He hurt Belly and she ran off to Jeremiah. The question is did she choose him, one of the two she loved or was he the one she loved?

This book or series was amazing. This is the kind of book that when your finished makes you just want to lay down and cry. Not because youre happy and not because youre sad. Its something i cant explain. Belly's relationship with the boys is so complex you cannot even come close to explaining it. Now that i am finished i feel a bit hallow. It feels like i have just lost a close friend. This book was one i will never forget and most defi nitely now my favorite. i will be keeping an eye out for more works by jenny han and really am hoping that belly, jeremiah, and conrad will make a return to my life. this book, simply put, is amazing.

Jenny Han has without a doubt won me over with her extraordinary Summer series. There is nothing better to me than contemporary fiction, and if you love it as much as I do then you are absolutely crazy to pass up these books. It's hard to review a series because a lot of people may have not read it and you never want to give too much away. So if this review focuses more of the series as a whole then please forgive me because it's hard to not just discuss it all.

Since The Summer I Turned Pretty, I have been on this adventure with Belly as she grows from a young adult into an adult. It has been exiting, breath-taking, and sometimes really sad just like real life can be. I cannot get over how free-flowing Han's writing is, and how she never holds back from the innocence of Belly. Numerous times Conrad always referred to Belly as just a kid. It's true. A lot of her actions were sometimes childish, but what girl hasn't had them? The third book takes place while Belly is in college (!!). When the book started, I was still pretty hacked off at my boy Conrad, and I had fully taken on that Jeremiah just might be perfect for her.

And the first couple chapters OH MAI GAWD! I cannot even discuss them because it is a massive spoiler but I was so shaking my first! I was not expecting THAT! After THAT SHOCKING FACT, I wasn't for sure what to think, but I couldn't put the book down. There was so much character growth in Belly, this maturity coming out of her and it was so great to see. Then Conrad had to go and redeem his damn self. Which yes, it made me happy, but at the same I just didn't know what to think anymore with all the characters. Who do I root for? Trust me, Han has made me fall in love with not only both brothers, but Belly, her mom, her brother - all of them.
