Excerpts-
  • From the book


    chapter one

    When it's finals week and you've been studying for five hours straight, you need three things to get you through the night. The biggest Slurpee you can find, half cherry, half Coke. Pajama pants, the kind that have been washed so many times, they are tissue-paper thin. And finally, dance breaks. Lots of dance breaks. When your eyes start to close and all you want is your bed, dance breaks will get you through.

    It was four in the morning, and I was studying for the last final of my freshman year at Finch University. I was camped out in my dorm library with my new best friend, Anika Johnson, and my old best friend, Taylor Jewel. Summer vacation was so close, I could almost taste it. Just five more days. I'd been counting down since April.

    "Quiz me," Taylor commanded, her voice scratchy.

    I opened my notebook to a random page. "Define anima versus animus."

    Taylor chewed on her lower lip. "Give me a hint."

    "Umm . . . think Latin," I said.

    "I didn't take Latin! Is there going to be Latin on this exam?"

    "No, I was just trying to give you a hint. Because in Latin boys' names end in -us and girls' names end in -a, and anima is feminine archetype and animus is masculine archetype. Get it?"

    She let out a big sigh. "No. I'm probably going to fail."

    Looking up from her notebook, Anika said, "Maybe if you stopped texting and started studying, you wouldn't."

    Taylor glared at her. "I'm helping my big sister plan our end-of-year breakfast, so I have to be on call tonight."

    "On call?" Anika looked amused. "Like a doctor?"

    "Yes, just like a doctor," Taylor snapped.

    "So, will it be pancakes or waffles?"

    "French toast, thank you very much."

    The three of us were all taking the same freshman psych class, and Taylor's and my exam was tomorrow, Anika's was the day after. Anika was my closest friend at school besides Taylor. Seeing as how Taylor was competitive by nature, it was a friendship that she was more than a little jealous of, not that she'd ever in a million years admit it.

    My friendship with Anika was different from my friendship with Taylor. Anika was laid-back and easy to be with. She wasn't quick to judge. More than all that, though, she gave me the space to be different. She hadn't known me my whole life, so she had no expectations or preconceptions. There was freedom in that. And she wasn't like any of my friends back home. She was from New York, and her father was a jazz musician and her mother was a writer.

    A couple of hours later, the sun was rising and casting the room in a bluish light, and Taylor's head was down, while Anika was staring off into space like a zombie.

    I rolled up two paper balls in my lap and threw them at my two friends. "Dance break," I sang out as I pressed play on my computer. I did a little shimmy in my chair.

    Anika glared at me. "Why are you so chipper?"

    "Because," I said, clapping my hands together, "in just a few hours, it will all be over." My exam wasn't until one in the afternoon, so my plan was to go back to my room and sleep for a couple of hours, then wake up with time to spare and study some more.

    I overslept, but I still managed to get another hour of studying in. I didn't have time to go to the dining hall for breakfast, so I just drank a Cherry Coke from the vending machine.

    The test was as hard as we had expected, but I was pretty sure I would get at least a B. Taylor was pretty sure she hadn't failed, which was good. Both of us were too tired to celebrate after, so we just high-fived and went our separate ways.

    I headed back to my dorm room, ready to pass out until...

Reviews-
  • DOGO Books maggies20 - We'll Always Have Summer is just as exciting and amazing as the previous two books. I think this book is very emotional, intense and surprising. Belly and Jeremiah started dating, and after two years, they've decided to get married. Even though everyone else thinks that they're making a mistake, the two lovers is determined to make this choice. However, what Belly doesn't realize is that her feelings for Conrad never disappeared. After one Christmas at the Cousins, Belly finds her love for Conrad coming back piece by piece. But Jeremiah has always been there for her! So Belly is absolutely torn, she has to make a choice between these two boys, or lose them both. I'm really satisfied about how the ending turned out, it really met the expectations of the readers. This book teaches the readers a lot about how to face the problems in life, such as how to overcome the pain when you lose people you love, also following your own heart. In the end, Belly had to follow her heart, because she's the only one capable of deciding her destiny. So I really love this series and recommend everyone to read it.

    Isabel (Belly) Conklin always knew she "would be Belly Fisher one day." She just didn't know which of the Fisher brothers she'd marry: Conrad, her first love, or younger brother Jeremiah, who caught her on the rebound. As fate would have it, Jeremiah is the one to propose marriage during the spring of Belly's first year in college. Following impulse rather than reason (or her mother's adamant protests), Belly accepts. However, her premarital bliss is undercut by the flicker of passion she still holds for Conrad. In Han's conclusion to the trilogy that began with The Summer I Turned Pretty, she both underscores the folly of getting engaged too young and vividly depicts the emotions of a girl on the brink of womanhood, impatient to make all of her dreams come true. If Jeremiah's frat-boy mentality is somewhat stereotyped, he remains an effective foil to the more pensive, sensitive Conrad. While Belly's final decision may not come as a surprise to readers, it will satisfy those who have followed her through each of her summers. Ages 12–up.

    Gr 9 Up—-Isobel "Belly" Conklin has always known that someday she would marry a Fisher boy. First she loved Conrad, and then it was Jeremiah. In Jenny Han's sequel (2011) to "The Summer I Turned Pretty" (2010) and "It's Not Sumer without You" (2010, all S & S), Belly is turning 19 and has agreed to marry Jeremiah at the end of the summer, but her heart and mind keep going back to Conrad. In the final book of the "Summer Trilogy," we get a deeper look at the history of this triangle and discover where it ultimately ends. At times, Jessica Almasy's narration seems too young and Belly comes off as annoyingly naive. But, in many ways, that's the way she was written. When Jeremiah admits to sexual infidelity, Belly is hurt and upset, but he quickly proposes and she seemingly forgets her doubts and believes that marriage will somehow fix whatever was wrong with their relationship. Jeremiah comes across as so inconsiderate that Belly's unending devotion to him borders on the absurd. This light, entertaining read can stand on its own, but the character flaws come close to sinking the story.—"Genevieve Gallagher, Charlottesville High School, VA"

    Can teenage love ever be forever?

    Isabel (Belly) from The Summer I Turned Pretty (2009) and It's Not Summer Without You (2010) finishes up her freshman year at college somewhat unconvincingly committed to Jeremiah Fisher, one of the two brothers with whom she has spent summers since she was small. Isabel becomes furious to learn that Jeremiah had sex with another girl from their college in Cabo on spring break, but he wins back her affections with a grand gesture: a proposal of marriage. Caught up in the idea—she will plan a summer wedding! they will attend college as a married couple!—Isabel tries ignores her misgivings about Jeremiah, the appalled silence of her mother and her own still-strong feelings for Jeremiah's older brother, Conrad. It's both funny and believable when Jeremiah insists he wants to dance the wedding dance to "You Never Can Tell" from the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. Han gives a satisfying nod to wedding-planning fantasies even while revealing their flimsy basis for an actual marriage. A final chapter in 23-year-old Isabel's voice reveals the not-so-surprising happy ending.

    Han's impressive ear for and pitch-perfect reproduction of the interactions between not-quite-adult older teens make this an appealing conclusion to this trilogy romance among bright middle-class young people. (Fiction. 12 & up)
