The Summer I Turned Pretty, our new favorite rom-com, now has a definite second season. It offered us the first glimpse at Taylor Swift’s re-recorded version of This Love.
The limited series is based on another book by Jenny Han, whose book To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before became a worldwide hit when it was turned into a Netflix movie.
The Summer I Turned Pretty is also about a girl coming of age, and it follows Isabel, whose friends call her “Belly.” She gets caught in a love triangle between two boys she’s known her whole life.Belly spends the summer with her mother, brother, her mother’s best friend, and her friend’s two boys. During this time, she experiences her first love, her first heartbreak, and the magic of a “perfect summer,” something we all remember fondly.
The book series is for young adults, but there’s something about the beachy, summer romance that draws you in, and the fact that it’s predictable makes it feel good. The trailer is also timed to the re-release of Taylor Swift’s 1989 song This Love, which gives us the cheesy, cute vibes we’re looking for.
Who is in The Summer I Turned Pretty?
Just like in “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” the show’s creators chose to highlight new talent among the teens who appear in it.
Before the All the Boys trilogy, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo were mostly unknown. We expect these new young actors to explode into the public soon, just like Lana Condor and Noah Centineo did.
Belly is played by Lola Tung, and her two brothers, Jeremiah and Conrad, are played by Gavin Casalegno and Christopher Briney, respectively.
Is it a film or a show on TV?
The Summer I Turned Pretty is a limited series, while To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was turned into three movies.
The Summer I Turned Pretty is the second book in a series about Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah. Like the first book, it takes place over a number of years.
Booktopia has The Summer I Turned Pretty, It’s Not Summer Without You, and We’ll Always Have Summer if you want to read them before you start the series.
