And when Jeremiah makes the worst mistake a boy can make, Belly is forced to question what she thought was true love. Does she really have a future with Jeremiah? Has she ever gotten over Conrad? It's time for Belly to decide, once and for all, who has her heart forever.

This review may be spoilery for the second book. This book is the third novel of a trilogy.

My review

We'll always have summer is the last installment to the Summer trilogy by Jenny Han. The last line of It's not summer without you was awful for my nerves, I couldn't wait, I had to know. That's why I've started this one immediately after finishing the second book.

The action takes place two years after It's not summer without you. Belly and Jeremiah have grown up, they are now together, in love and happy.  But sometimes life can be full of surprises.

Belly has growing up since the first book but she is still a bit immature and annoying at times. I really didn't agree at all with some of her decisions. I even found some of them quite silly, selfish and stupid. But as she's still quite young it was easy for me to relate to her and above all understand her and forgive her. I was really touched by the way she needs her mother.

In this third installment, we have Conrad's point of view - after Jeremiah's in book two. It was really interesting to have Conrad's opinion. These chapters enable us to understand him better and to finally know what he feels. I really loved those moments and they were perhaps my favorite ones. I found those passages really moving, and sometimes heartbreaking.

The writing is still smooth, pleasant and compelling. The plot is fast-paced and I read this book really quickly because I so wanted to know the ending. The feelings are very well described, We'll always have summer is a poignant and beautiful read. I think it was a perfect conclusion to an awesome serie.

To sum up, I loved this book and I loved the Summer trilogy. It was an awesome read, full of emotions, sweetness but also melancholia. Sometimes bittersweet, these books perfectly describe teenage years, first loves and the transition between childhood and adulthood. Overall, it was a brilliant trilogy and an amazing read. I will read Jenny Han's next books without a doubt and I really can't wait for them.
