The Summer I Turned PrettyPaperback - 2009
Some summers are just destined to be pretty
Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer -- they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

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.
