The Summer I Turned Pretty, by Jenny Han
The Summer I Turned Pretty, by Jenny Han, is a great beach read. It doesn't take long to get into, and it flows smoothly. This was my first time reading it, though I had heard many, many great reviews. I've read Han's first book, too, Shug. I also recommend that.
The Summer I Turned Pretty is kind-of predictable, yes. I didn't read it for suspense though. I read it for the characters. Han had great character development in Shug, and I was counting on that in The Summer I Turned Pretty. Han came through. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and it was great to read after exams when I needed something light to read.
