We'll Always Have Summer - Jenny Han

Belly has only ever been in love with two boys, both with the last name Fisher. And after being with Jeremiah for the last two years, she’s almost positive he is her soul mate. Almost. While Conrad has not gotten over the mistake of letting Belly go, Jeremiah has always known that Belly is the girl for him. So when Belly and Jeremiah decide to make things forever, Conrad realizes that it’s now or never—tell Belly he loves her, or lose her for good.
Belly will have to confront her feelings for Jeremiah and Conrad and face the inevitable: She will have to break one of their hearts.


All of the feelings in this book. All of them.


I sometimes think that everyone experiences love a little bit differently, and often I get frustrated with books for placing a lot of value on relationships that I couldn't see lasting. There can be a difference between first love and last love, between true love and love that you make work.


Han knows what love is and how it feels, and she captures it perfectly in this book, in a way that made my heart break and feel full multiple times over and at the same time.

I didn't like that this book had chapters from Conrad's point of view; I think it would have been much stronger to have left the narration more limited. This book could have been entirely unpredictable if not for a few minor details!


Belly is still super immature to the point that it really frustrates me sometimes. I love her naiveté and how headstrong she is, but at the same time, I can't help wanting her to grow up a little and relating to her poor parents.


Han deals with friendships fairly well also. I enjoyed the process of Belly selecting bridesmaids and understanding how her best friend from high school related to her best friend in college.


The second book in this series felt like filler, but this one completed the trilogy with a bang.
