Description

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. Conrad has not gotten over the mistake he made when he let Belly go even as 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 a truth she has possibly always known: she will have to break one of their hearts.

My review

Finally, we have the final novel of the Summer series. Who Belly will choose? Conrad or Jeremiah? That’s the main answer every lover of this series wants to know.

The story begins 2 years after the end of It’s not Summer Without You. Belly is a freshman in the same college as Jeremiah and her best friend. She is dating Jeremiah but she never forgets Conrad who studies in California and is troubled when she sees him. Belly is nineteen now and has grown up, the innocent summer holidays are the past and the nostalgia is gone. However, she remains innocent and naïve and she needs her mother.

I don’t want to tell more about the story because few things happened in the novel are surprising and important for the evolution of the plot.

Jenny Han has written a beautiful and realistic story. It’s heartbreaking, Belly has to face so many problems because of the Fincher brothers who each hurts Belly’s feelings. In this third novel, it’s Jeremiah’s turn and even if Belly have some hesitation and doubts between the security and the passion, the reader will know what will happen, it’s very easy and understanding.

We have finally some chapters with Conrad’s point of view and it’s worth to wait because these chapters are amazing and emotional. We finally have a look into Conrad’s feelings toward Belly since several years and we understand that he is not the bad guy as he seems to be. He becomes more sensible and more sympathetic… and even more appealing ^^ On the contrary, Jeremiah is described as a total jerk and is not anymore the perfect guy it looked like in the previous books.

We’ll always have summer is a perfect conclusion to the series, thanks to Jenny Han who has written one of the most beautiful YA contemporary book series I’ve ever read.

    You are so lucky ! I think that a lot of girls will be jealous, you had the chance to read it very early. But you really deserve it, you are so “in love” with books and reading in general that I’m really happy to see that it’s YOU among all of the people that could read it in the firsts. 😉

        Je ne savais même pas que c’était possible d’avoir des ARC ailleurs qu’aux États-Unis. Je vis au Canada, alors ce serait peut-être possible pour moi de demander, mais mon blog n’est pas assez populaire pour ça, j’en ai bien peur…

        En tout cas, j’adore ton avis et je suis (presque trop) impatiente de lire le tome 2 et ce tome 3 qui sort à la fin du mois prochain. J’avais commencé la série en français, mais ça ne sort pas assez vite à mon goût, alors je me mettrai peut-être à les lire en VO. En plus, la couverture que j’ai n’ira plus avec celle du tome 2 parce qu’elles vont être rééditées. Je vis un gros dilemme en ce moment.

          Ce sont des ebooks, ça permet aux éditeurs de toucher plus de monde! Et bien j’avais demandé avec mon blog en français, et ça n’avait pas marché, mais avec mon blog anglais, ça a été ^^

          Tu devrais les lire en VO, c’est très facile et tu n’auras pas à attendre plus d’un an pour avoir la suite et fin de la trilogie!
