It's Not Summer Without You (A Summer Novel) by Jenny Han

This is Jenny Han’s second book in the summer series and I think I enjoyed this one even more than the first! This review will have spoilers from the first book so don’t read on if you haven’t read it yet, you’ve been warned! This summer will be very different for Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad instead of going to the summer house in Cousins they’ll be spending their first summers at home without each other each separately morning the loss of the boys mother Susannah. Belly’s best friend Taylor try’s to keep Belly’s mind occupied with parties and new boys but all Belly wants is the beach house and her summer family although she knows having lost Susannah the link that held them all together chances are she’ll never go to Cousins again. But then Jeremiah calls Belly. Conrad’s gone missing and there’s only one place he could be. Looks like the three of them will be going to Cousins this summer after all and find that they have to open up to each other about their grief in order to help each other. This was a gorgeous summer read that dealt with the grief side of this book very well. It was serious and emotional at times and then funny and light in others. A perfect book to read on a hot summer’s day. I hope there are more books to come in this series especially because things end on a bit of a cliff-hanger at the end of this one. 4 stars. My Rating 4/5 stars ****
