We'll Always Have Summer By Jenny Han
I have always loved this series, from the first book, The Summer I Turned Pretty. I wish the series did not end because they last book was the best one yet because all the characters have grown since the first novel. I think that when reading this novel it gives you a sense of compassion towards each character because it happens to most people in this situation, to commit to the person who you love with your whole heart.
I also loved the picture on the cover because it really resembles what happened in the book. Ok with the review, In the first bit of the novel I thought Belly really fit well with Jeremiah and cared about her. Then we would read about that Jeremiah made a mistake, and their whole relationship is tested because of this mistake that he did. I really felt for Belly though out these scenes the author presented in the telling of the story. We then later learn that though this breakup (the characters are now in college) that (spoiler).. that Jeremiah cheated on Belly:( I sympathized with Belly because even if it was a breakup for that one week, you would try again to get the girl back. Jeremiah did not even call her and she thought nothing of it when she would later find out at a frat party. With a few days apart the couple were back together, and he felt so bad, and he knew that he loved her, he asked an important question (not saying:p) and this would later take us to Cousins.
I love how Han, used Conrad as the other voice because it gave us how he presented his and Belly's relationship that we never knew. I really loved how his character developed through this book because it made you fall in love with him all over again. We first see him at the garden scene where he first sees Belly after 2 years, same time her and Jeremiah have been together. I really don't want to give too much away because lots of people want to read this series. So instead I will tell you that this was the best book out of the series, and I will probably read the whole series again, but I do hope Han creates more to this series or another similar to the novels. I really loved the ending to the book, and I hope all of you out there will too!!
