Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty has been turned into a tv series adaptation and was released on June 17 on Prime Video. A coming-of-age romantic drama that is the perfect way to lounge on the couch and giggle and swoon over the two Fisher brothers.
On an annual summer vacation to their family friend’s summer house, protagonist Belly reunites with childhood friends and as the summer days fade away, she finds herself caught in the middle of a love triangle between the two brothers. A summer measured in memories and heart-fluttering moments, Belly is determined that this summer is where everything changes.
It’s the summer when her childhood crush might see her differently and reciprocate the feelings she’s always had for him since they were kids.
