"When something is perfect, you hope it never ends. Isabel's lazy, long hot summers at her family friends' beach house are over. Conrad - sexy and unavailable - is the only boy she's ever loved. He's left for college, taking her heart with him. Jeremiah, his gorgeous brother, is still Isabel's best friend - but maybe friendship isn't enough for him anymore ...Isabel just wants everything to stay the same, because change means moving on. But if she stops looking back, will she find a future she never knew she wanted?"

Hmm. Som efterfølger til den sommer-lune 'The Summer I Turned Pretty' er denne bog langt mere trist og en anelse dyster. Det var en god bog, det er slet ikke det - jeg havde vist bare sat næsen op efter noget endnu mere 'summer-vibe' med strand, sol og hygge. Så jeg blev nok en anelse skuffet, da det ikke er hele omdrejningspunktet for denne bog. Når det er sagt, så er historiens retning stadig interessant.

Denne gang følger vi ikke kun Belly, men derimod også Jeremiah. Det var rigtig rart at få tingene fra hans synsvinkel indimellem og jeg synes det fungerede godt som afveksling til Bellys tanker og flashbacks. Jeremiah er en sød dreng og man kan virkelig bare mærke, hvor godt synsvinklen passer til ham ud fra det man lærte om ham i den forrige bog.

"I thought I knew what heartbreak felt like. I thought heartbreak was me, standing alone at the prom. That was nothing. This, this was heartbreak. The pain in your chest, the ache behind your eyes. The knowing that things will never be the same again. It's all relative, I suppose. You think you know love, you think you know real pain, but you don't. You don't know anything." - citat side 30.

Nu sætter jeg ikke mine forventninger for højt til den sidste bog, selvom jeg dog stadig håber på, at få lidt mere af Jenny Hans herlige sommerstemninger. Hun skriver jo skønt og jeg er virkelig begyndt at holde af karaktererne.
