One girl, two boys…How can Isabel, Belly to the boys, choose as she grows up with them through one glorious summer holiday after another? Belly has always yearned for the inaccessible, cool Conrad. But what does he feel for her? And what about Jeremiah? As Belly grows up the boys attitudes change. Will she get what she wants in the end? Fuelled by romance, Belly’s transformation from the little tag along to great girl friend is also an irresistible story about the importance of family and friendships and long, sun-filled summer holidays.

A piece of passion from Francesca Dow, Managing Director of Puffin Books:

"We are incredibly proud of every book we publish at Puffin but we want to share with you a handful of our exciting standalone novels. Gathered together under the umbrella of 'Fiction Puffin Loves', these are books we feel expecially passionate about. Here, you won't find the big bestselling series, but you are guaranteed writing at its very best - by debut writers as well as award-winners such as Melvin Burgess and Meg Rosoff. This is Fiction Puffin Loves."

Synopsis

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Everything that happened this past summer, and every summer before it, has all led up to this. To now. Every year Isabel spends a perfect summer at her family friends' house. There's the swimming pool at night, the private stretch of sandy beach ...and the two boys. Unavailable, aloof Conrad - who she's been in love with forever - and friendly, relaxed Jeremiah, the only one who's ever really paid her any attention. But this year something is different. They seem to have noticed her for the first time. It's going to be an amazing summer - and one she'll never forget...
