After the success of the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, it’s no surprise to see The Summer I Turned Pretty adaptation in the works. Another trilogy by author Jenny Han, this adaptation will be in series form for Prime Video. It has been renewed for a second season. YA romance and streaming are a perfect pairing right now and I know people are excited to see more Jenny Han on the screen.

About The Book: Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.
