It's one of those stories you wish would never end. You know the object is Belly having to choose one of the Fisher boys to be with, but it's the summer story that you want again and again. We'll Always Have Summer is the final book in the Jenny Han trilogy and the suspense of who Belly ends up with keeps you flipping the pages. Because you have to know. It's not possible to not want to know. Han is that good.
So Cam's out of the picture. Steven's not around too much. It's safe to say this story is mostly about Belly. We find her where we left off last time--with Jeremiah. We find she's been with him for the past two years and they go to the same college together. Jeremiah finally has who he wants and Conrad is pretty much out of the picture as well. The school year's winding down and all Belly wants to do is celebrate the end of finals at her boyfriend's frat party. There is just one thing that could ruin the night, and unfortunately she doesn't avoid it. She walks right into it. This leaves Jeremiah begging and crying for her to come back and her heart uncertain about everything they have ever shared together. When he proposes, everything changes.
Now Belly is inundated with decisions she has to make for her life. Should she stay with Jeremiah? Does she still have lingering feelings for Conrad? Is she too young to get married? Han answers all these questions and more. She is an expert at describing emotions. You can feel how conflicted each character feels in each situation. Belly grows up, but nothing feels rushed. It's nice that we get a glimpse of her life after college. She has become a mature young woman who learns how to love and move past heartbreak at the same time. She is a fighter for true love and brings hope to the rest of us.
