The Summer I Turned Pretty will fill the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before-shaped hole in your heart. The YA novel by Jenny Han, actually published years before her TATBILB series, is being adapted into a series on Prime Video. A perfect binge for the warmer months, the romance follows a girl named Belly as she’s caught in a love triangle between two brothers and longtime friends. Here’s what we know so far.
What is it about?
Per the Prime Video synopsis: “The Summer I Turned Pretty is a multigenerational drama that hinges on a love triangle between one girl and two brothers, the ever-evolving relationship between mothers and their children, and the enduring power of strong female friendship. It is a coming-of-age story about first love, first heartbreak, and the magic of that one perfect summer.”
It doesn’t seem to stray too far from its source material, but we’ll have to wait until the show debuts to see how accurate it is to the page.
When will it be released?
Be on the lookout Friday, June 17.
Is there a trailer?
Prime Video shared the teaser on May 5, debuting a clip of “This Love (Taylor’s Version)” by Taylor Swift in the footage.
