It’s Not a Summer Without You
Days whiz by, beginning and ending the same as the ones before. For Belly Conklin, this is her traditional summer, but will it be like this forever?
Conrad Fisher captured Belly’s heart in which she had hoped he would feel the same for her. This year was different; Belly had now caught Conrad’s heart too. Susannah Fisher, a loving mother of Conrad and Jeremiah recently had closed her eyes for the last time. Conrad and Jeremiahs’ life changed dramatically from the pain and suffering their mother went through with Breast Cancer. The Fishers’ shared a house with the Conklin family, but when she passed, her ex-husband tried to take over. What will they do to save the house?
Jenny Han introduced a bold love story called It’s Not a Summer Without You. This book is the second in the outstanding series. I understand the plot of the story to a greater degree since the first one kept jumping from past to present. I think the author’s intention of the book is to show that when you believe in something, you need to go after it. Conrad is the loving son of Susannah Fisher, but at times he felt emotional. One of the only people he truly cared for was his mom. When Conrad sets his heart to anything he will not stop trying until he exceeds his goals. Jenny Han’s novel was able to lure me into the story, and it felt like I became one of the characters the whole time. The novel It’s Not a Summer Without You will take your breath away. It’s Not a Summer Without You is a must read book for all girls that don’t like too much action, and that love romance.
