– 2nd book of “The Summer I Turned Pretty” –
Belly (Isabel) has started dating Conrad. He drives all the way to her house to see her although he has moved to his dorm for college.
On Belly’s prom, she got Conrad as his escort, but that was the very same night they broke up because she felt like he doesn’t want to be with her at all. It was hard for her to move on. She didn’t date anyone after Conrad and she don’t even come along when Taylor invites her to parties. She’s heartbroken.
Then he got a call from Jeremiah, saying that Conrad was missing and she ended up looking for him along with Jeremiah. She wanted to see him after all although all she needs to do is say goodbye to him officially so she can let him go.
Both Jeremiah and Belly thought that Conrad lost track of his life because he’s no longer going to school and was always drinking but the truth was he’s just protecting the beach house from being sold. Their father is selling it and he has made up his mind.
Laurel, Belly’s mother, was the one who fixed things, after Belly drunk called he. She convinced Mr. Fisher not to sell the house, but in one condition, Conrad should pass the test.
Jeremiah and Belly helped Conrad study and when he took the exam, he nailed it. He was so happy he even ended up hugging Belly. After taking another exam, he came back and saw Belly and Jeremiah kissing in the car. Belly ran after him and he told her hurtful things. He even told Jeremiah that he can pursue Belly, and he doesn’t mind.
On the way home, Belly and Jeremiah held hands.
