I liked it and I'm 24 years old. I probably would have liked it more as a teenager, but it's not bad. I found myself a bit surprised at the ending, even. And it was good enough to make me want to read the rest of the series. I recommend it for teens especially.

This book was sooo good! I really like it because it talks all about her summers in a beach house, and it makes me think if the beach and I love the beach!
It is all about a girl named Belly (Isabell) and she is in love with her moms friends son, Conrad. This book is about her life at the beach house and about how everything is changing. If you haven't read it you definitely should!

An all time favourite of mine! Have recommended this to a friend of mine as well, and she is hooked! Conrad and Belly forever. ;)

This novel revolves around a teenage girl, Belly (love the name!). Belly measures her life in summers, the summer she had her first crush, the summer she learnt to swim, the summer she had her first kiss, and now, the summer she turned pretty. Belly has gone to spend summer with her mom's best friend's family ever since she could remember. But something feels different this summer, she feels prettier, almost liked. Her mom has two best friends, Conrad- the hot, rebellious, dark musician and Jeremiah- the funny, outspoken, loud and cute one. Belly has known these guys here entire life and has had crushes on them especially Conrad for a long time now. This summer, something happens for the good and the bad and everything is different. This was a pretty interesting read, and it was quick too. It's just that I found Belly a bit whiny, it's like her entire summer she's obsessing over what boy she likes. I also hated how she tried to impress Conrad and she was always so wounded every time he said something obnoxious, it's like she didn't even try to play hard to get. She wasn't a strong female character, she was just a self-centered teenager. I also hated how she treated her mother, (I know this is weird being a teenager my self) but it's like, she never realized the reason their relationship was so strained was because she never really did appreciate her mother. However, even though I didn't like Belly, I really did love Susannah she was such a fun person as well as an independent women. She was so nice to everyone, and always got through her struggles. Overall, this book was a quick summer read that most people would enjoy. If you are a fan of susane colasanti, you should try this book.

Every year, Belly looks forward to one thing - summer. She looks forward to the view of the beach from her room, feeling the smooth ocean water between her toes , soaking up the warm sun, kind, lovely Susannah and the boys.Especially the boys. Beck's boys, her mother called them. Conrad and Jeremiah. Sweet, lovely, and together as always. The summers spent at the summer house were like a dream, a memory of the fun times they could all just be together like children. But this summer, everything changes. Big brother Steven heads off to college, Conrad starts spending more time alone, and the boys look at her in ways other than just friendship. It seems as though they'll never be the kids of the summer house again. But Belly soon starts to realize...the more everything changes,the more it all ends up the way it should have been all along. This summer, and all the summers before it, led up to this. Up to now.
