Who is older Conrad or Jeremiah?
- Isabel “Belly” Conklin: The narrator, and protagonist of the series. She is the daughter of Laurel and the younger sister of Steven. She is known to have had a crush on her friend Conrad since she was young, but her relationship with him falls apart at the end of It’s Not Summer Without You after the two become a couple for a short time. She then starts a relationship with his brother, Jeremiah, after he kisses her; making his feelings known to her. In We’ll Always Have Summer, which chronicles their two-year relationship, Belly discovers at a frat party that Jeremiah cheated on her with a sorority girl. She slaps him across the face and spends days in bed, crying. To prove his regret, Jeremiah proposes to her, which she hesitantly accepts; however, a result of ongoing fights with her mother (who is furious with her for choosing to marry so young), she stays at Cousins Beach. Because of this arrangement, her old feelings for Conrad, who is staying there as well, begin to slowly resurface. Toward the climax of the novel, Conrad confesses his love for her. Although Belly blows up at his confession, saying he was too late, her feelings for both brothers are called into question. She and Jeremiah, in the end, call off their engagement and break up for good after realizing they are not meant to be. In the epilogue, Belly has not heard from Conrad for two years, before receiving her handwritten letters from him “each and every month” throughout the rest of her college years. Eventually, she begins to stay in contact with him. Conrad shows up at her college graduation, resulting in them getting back together as a couple. He proposes to Belly a little over a year later.
- Conrad “Con”, “Connie” Fisher: The eldest son of Susannah and Adam Fisher, and older brother of Jeremiah. He is known to push away his loved ones and to keep all his emotions and feelings inside. In the first book, his character is something of a jerk, having spent the summer at the beach getting drunk or locked in his room. It is suspected, though, that he has developed feelings for Belly; he is shown several times as either overly protective or jealous of boys flirting with her. At the end of the novel, he and Belly become a couple. However, the relationship is short-lived when Conrad once again slips back into his emotional old ways. At the beginning of the second novel, he runs away from college to protect the beach house once he finds out his father intends to sell it. In the end, Laurel shows up and makes a deal with Mr. Fisher that Conrad and Jeremiah can personally keep the house if Conrad returns to college and passes all his exams. The adults leave and Belly and Jeremiah help prepare Conrad for his exams. Things seem to go well, but take an abrupt turn for the worse when Conrad walks in on Belly and Jeremiah kissing. Conrad, however, tells his brother he is over Belly and it is okay if the two get together. In We’ll Always Have Summer, which takes place two years later, it is revealed that Conrad lied when saying he was over Belly and has always been in love with her. He spends time throughout the novel fighting his true feelings and pretending he does not care for her. However, once he discovers at Jeremiah’s bachelor party how he cheated on Belly, Conrad becomes furious and leaves. When Belly later comes across him, Conrad confesses his long-hidden love for her before begging her not to marry his brother and to be with him, breaking down into tears. Belly turns him down, claiming he is too late, breaking his heart. The next day, Conrad apologizes to Belly because he was “too drunk” during his confession, but Belly knows he is lying. After Jeremiah finds out about his brother’s feelings for Belly, he goes missing on his wedding day. Conrad finds him at their mother’s garden. They fight and Jeremiah soon disowns him as his brother, saying that he is “dead” to him. Conrad bids Belly goodbye, and gives her back his infinity necklace, saying it “always” belonged to her and “always will”. In the epilogue, Conrad has not contacted Belly for two years before sending her his first handwritten letter, which then come “each and every month” through the rest of her college years. He then shows up at her college graduation, and they get back together. This all leads up to his marriage proposal two years into their relationship. The series ends with Belly marrying Conrad, and the couple starting a new life together.
- Jeremiah “Jere” Fisher: At the outset of the series, he is the “golden” boy, the one who appears to be untainted in the eyes of everyone. He is a good friend to Belly and a loving brother to Conrad. He steps aside as Conrad pursues Belly, even when he came to realize his own feelings for her. In It’s Not Summer Without You, he grows tired of burying his feelings for Belly and abruptly kisses her while sitting in a car with her; she kisses back, only for Conrad to discover them. Despite being near furious of what he caught the two doing, Conrad gives Jeremiah permission to have his chance with Belly. In We’ll Always Have Summer, his character has gone through an ugly transformation from golden boy to frat boy, even cheating on Belly with the “sister sorority slut”. He proposes to Belly to prove his remorse, but is shown to have dramatically changed for the worse. He remains jealous of Conrad and Belly’s friendship and even uses his engagement to Belly to spite Conrad. However, when he discovers that Conrad confessed his feelings for her, he takes off the night before the wedding and fails to show up on the day. Conrad finds him and confronts him about who loves and deserves Belly more. After reading a letter for “him” from their mom, and discovering it was actually meant for Conrad, Jeremiah disowns Conrad as his brother. In the epilogue, he is seen at Conrad and Belly’s wedding and brings a new girl along.
- Susannah “Beck” Fisher: The rock that everyone seems to cling to. Even in death, her calming force is referenced and used by all as they navigate the different situations in their lives. She dies of cancer between books one and two, but is heavily remembered by her family and friends throughout the course of the series. It is revealed that she left letters to “the summer kids” in the final book (although we only get to read the one she gave to Belly). She is shown to be very friendly, loving and compassionate. Her death hits everyone hard and life without her seems near impossible; it takes everyone almost a year to pull themselves together and form a life without her existence.
- Mr. Fisher: A man who is known to have his way no matter what it costs or who it hurts. He is Susannah’s husband and the father of Conrad and Jeremiah. After Susannah dies, he turns to whiskey, He drives Conrad away after Conrad saw how badly he began treating Susannah, such as cheating on her and running away when she got cancer. He tries to sell the summer house in It’s Not Summer Without You following Susannah’s death, and is barely stopped in time by Laurel and Conrad. In the final book, he tries to mend his relationship with his sons and pays for Jeremiah and Belly’s wedding, despite not agreeing with them getting married at such a young age.
- Taylor Jewel: Belly’s best friend despite being her polar opposite. Unlike Belly, she is boy crazy and shallow, though by We’ll Always Have Summer, she grows up and has something wise to say for once. In the first book of the series, as seen in flashbacks, she goes for all three boys (Steven, Conrad and Jeremiah) almost at once, determined to hook up with one of them. She is seen desperately trying to pair Belly with boys, even though her friend endlessly protests. She and Belly have a falling out towards the climax of It’s Not Summer Without You after Taylor accuses Belly of being “a crappy friend” when Belly does not want her to come to a party at the beach house. By We’ll Always Have Summer, they make peace, and Taylor can be seen throughout the course of the book supporting and helping Belly with her wedding. She confronts Conrad after suspecting he said something to Belly to upset her and warns him to leave her alone. Although she admits that Belly told her a part of her will always love Conrad, and knows he loves Belly too. She asks him to “be the good guy Belly says he is” by letting her go.
- Laurel Dunne: Belly and Steven’s mother as well as Susannah’s best friend. She is rigid and desperate to have the relationship with Belly that her daughter had with Susannah. She seems to always make the wrong choices as far as Belly is concerned, but her desire to be close to her daughter is prevalent and admirable. The two women come head to head in We’ll Always Have Summer when Belly and Jeremiah announce their engagement. Laurel is furious, saying the couple are far too young for such a commitment, even going as far as refusing to show up for the wedding, which leaves Belly devastated. After seeing her upset one night at Cousins Beach, Conrad talks to her and manages to convince her to make amends with Belly. It is shown in the final book that the relationship between Conrad and Laurel is very close and even resembles the relationship between Conrad and Susannah. In the epilogue of We’ll Always Have Summer, it is implied that she helped Belly pick out her wedding dress for Belly’s wedding to Conrad, and helped plan the ceremony.
- Steven Conklin: Belly’s older brother, a good friend and supportive brother. Though we see little of him, his truthfulness is a springboard for Belly to make difficult but wise decisions. He appears throughout Belly’s flashbacks, making fun of her and teasing her endlessly, but despite such teasing, he is shown to have a protective side. He even says to Belly herself in We’ll Always Have Summer that while Jeremiah was like a brother to him, Belly was his “little sister and came first”, something that surprises her.
- Cam: He only appears in The Summer I Turned Pretty as a summer fling of Belly’s. It is said that he had a crush on Belly throughout grade school but never had the courage to approach her. He leaves one final voicemail for Belly, asking if she wanted to stay in contact after the summer, but if not, “it was nice hanging out with her”. He is mentioned twice more in the series, as one of Belly’s summer memories.
Is Conrad 18 The Summer I Turned Pretty?
Conrad is eighteen and about to enter college. He has always been moody compared to his much livelier younger brother, but during the summer when the novel is set, Conrad becomes particularly withdrawn. In the time since Belly last saw Conrad, he quit the football team at school, broke up with his girlfriend, and started smoking.
Playing guitar is one of Conrad’s few hobbies, and it is another indication of his solitary, thoughtful nature. His traits and behavior suggest that Conrad is the stereotypical teenage “bad boy”, but his withdrawn nature also hints at vulnerability that he’s hiding from others. As the story progresses, the reader learns that Conrad is aware that his mother’s condition has grown worse and realizes the family will likely lose her soon.
Much of what appears to be bad behavior is actually evidence of his emotional turmoil. Instead of sharing his feelings with others, he withdraws into himself. Conrad idolizes his father. As a result, he is particularly hard hit by the news that his parents are separating.

Belly dismisses her fears as groundless until she overhears Lacie saying she slept with Jeremiah during spring break.
Jeremiah admits that what she said is true, and Belly slaps him, utterly devasted by his betrayal. She tells him they’re finished. Belly recalls how she and Jeremiah had gotten into a fight before spring break. They broke up, but Jeremiah thought the breakup was permanent while Belly understood the breakup to be a temporary moment of trouble in the relationship.
To Jeremiah, getting physical with Lacie didn’t seem like cheating on Belly, but Belly interprets his actions as cheating. Belly’s disappointment in Jeremiah makes her think of his brother, Conrad. She recalls how, six months earlier she had driven down to the Fishers’ beach house and stayed the night.

At the garden dedication event, Conrad arrives late and the narration switches to his point of view.

At Jeremiah’s bachelor party, Conrad overhears Jeremiah’s friends teasing him about not having sex with Belly yet. The guys also mention how Jeremiah slept with Lacie during spring break, infuriating Conrad, who had assumed that his brother was faithful to Belly and would never do anything to hurt her.
Conrad tells Belly that Jeremiah cheated on her, and when she replies that she already knows, he openly confesses that he still loves her. Belly is angry that Conrad is telling her the words she always wanted to hear two years too late.

Why is Conrad depressed?
The Summer I Turned Pretty season 1 – why is Conrad depressed? This article, “why is Conrad depressed,” contains spoilers regarding the Amazon original series The Summer I Turned Pretty season 1. The whole premise of The Summer I Turned Pretty is a teenager growing up and finding the confidence to chase her crush.
- Belly’s crush is none other than Conrad, the love of her life.
- Her summer wish is to kiss this mysterious teenager, but when she arrives at Cousins Beach that summer, things are completely different.
- Conrad has changed and appears to be depressed, but what has caused this altered mood? From the get go, there is something different about Conrad.
He’s ditched the dorky glasses, he acts all distant and moody, he smokes marijuana and he’s dating a debutante girl. All these changes make Belly question her infatuation, causing her to even call him a hypocrite. To Belly Conrad is a hypocrite. He always hated the idea of smoking and found the whole debutante scene to be superficial and dated.
But now, Conrad has turned into the one thing he hated. On top of all this, Conrad has quit College football and is unsure of his future prospects. Whilst Jeremiah and Steven acquire jobs for the summer, Conrad is left moping about the house, uninspired. He does manage to get himself a voluntary job however, where he teaches writer Cleveland about sailing and the two bond, discussing relationships on numerous occasions.
Cleveland tries to help Conrad control his anger problems and steer him in the right direction. Conrad even admits to Cleveland that he knows about his mother’s cancer. This is more than likely the main trigger for Conrad. He found out that his mother had cancer, but she wanted to keep it a secret.
- It was killing him that he couldn’t tell his brother and kept everything inside.
- At the end, Belly says he should have shared the problem with her, instead of burying it deep down, and he now realizes the damage that did.
- He may also be aware of Adam’s affair, as he is extremely cold to his father when he arrives for the Fourth of July celebrations.
Their relationship is an odd one, and he seems to never be able to live up to his father’s expectations. Conrad’s moody behavior comes down to his mother’s cancer diagnosis and her struggles with treatment. He keeps the news deep inside and finds it hard to communicate his emotions to others.
How old is Jeremiah?
Jeremiah’s age in The Summer I Turned Pretty – In the first book/first season of the series, Jeremiah is 16. This is arguably why you see him flirt with everyone—and it is everyone as he is a bisexual character. He makes it clear that he wants to have fun, but that doesn’t stop him from falling hard for Belly as the season goes on.
- What is the age gap like between Jeremiah and Belly? Well, it turns out there isn’t one.
- Belly is also 16 in the first season of the TV series.
- Lola Tung, who plays the main character, was 19 at the time of filming the first season, so she’s not playing a character that much younger than herself.
- You can like the two characters together as the age gap won’t give you an icky feeling.
As the seasons (and books) progress, we pick up a summer later on. This means the characters only age by a year in the story. There isn’t that much change between the ages of 16 and 18, is there? The Summer I Turned Pretty is available to stream on,

: How old is Jeremiah in The Summer I Turned Pretty?
Does Belly lose her virginity to Conrad?
She remains a virgin throughout the series, even during her two year relationship with Jeremiah. This is due to her wanting her first time to be special and something she took very seriously, choosing to wait until she knew she was absolutely sure. She hates her nickname “Belly” as she thinks it sounds childish. Despite being a tom boy and preferring relaxed and loose fitting clothes, she is shown to be very attractive and draws the eyes of many boys throughout the series. Cam even comments that Belly is one of the more popular girls at their school and admitted that he developed an instant crush on her the first time he saw her because of her beautiful appearance. Despite this, Belly herself does not believe she was ever that popular and has personal insecurities about her looks. She bears the brunt of the infamous “Belly Flop” that the boys created specifically for her when she was little. This involved all three boys – Steven, Conrad and Jeremiah – grabbing a hold of Belly and throwing her into the pool while yelling “Belly flop!” as they do so. They called this the “tradition” they had to do each summer they all came to the beach house together. Belly suspected Steven created the idea and may have decided to do it due to her always begging to be involved in the group’s fun when she was younger. She used to run to her mother for help whenever they tried to do it when she was a young child, but began to reluctantly put up with it when she was older. A “Belly Flop” occurs once in each novel. Both her and Steven’s, Conrad and Jeremiah’s and Taylor’s parents are divorced. She considers her first kiss to be with Jeremiah during a game of Truth or Dare when she was thirteen, this being when he abruptly kissed her when he was dared to kiss a random person in the group. Her passion is swimming and being in water as it makes her feel most calm and at peace. She had been on her school’s swim team and is a talented swimmer, possibly considered her team’s best swimmer. Her “specialty” is cocoa and a specific blend of slurpee. She got her nickname “Belly” from her father, who thought the name “Isabel” was too long of a name to casually say. When asked why he did not go with more common nicknames for Isabel such as “Izzy” or “Belle”, she theorized that it had to do with how Jelly Belly’s were her favorite candy. She further reveals that she dislikes the name “Izzy” and wished she was called “Belle” instead. By the third novel, she has started going by “Isabel” following her going into college, but her life-long friends and family still continue to call her “Belly” as they are used to calling her it. Although never specified, her birthday is in August and “marked the end of summer” for her and everyone. Belly’s character received mixed reviews from readers. Some readers disliked her character as they felt that she was childish and immature and found it hard to like her. Other readers, however, enjoyed the fact that Belly was somewhat immature and made poor choices at times since they felt like they could personally relate to her character. Some also found it refreshing that a main novel protagonist makes mistakes throughout their story, unlike other novel characters who are “perfect” and never make bad choices. They found Jenny Han’s writing choice for Belly to be realistic behavior for a normal teenager. Her favorite food is a pulled pork sandwich and yellow is her favorite flavor of cake. She is insecure about her facial freckles. Jeremiah taught her how to drive and use a stick shift car. Before the events of the first novel, when she is fifteen going on sixteen years old, she had always worn glasses before switching to contacts. Taylor had been encouraging her to get contacts since she was in the sixth grade and she listened by the events of the first novel. She is a fan of older films such as Casablanca and was heartbroken that Ilsa and Rick did not end up together. Belly is shown to enjoy a large variety of sweets (such as chocolate candy and sour patch kids) and junk food (like Cheetos and Kraft mac n’ cheese). She is sometimes teased about her unhealthy diet by her family. Daisies are her favourite flowers She hates getting up early “more than anything” and goes to bed late. The first (and only) time she struck someone was Jeremiah in We’ll Always Have Summer upon finding out that he cheated on her. The only time she has been hit herself was by her mother in It’s Not Summer Without You when yelling at her that she was disappointing Susannah with her behavior in the wake of her death. During her freshman year in college, she went through “Freshman Fifteen” in which she gained significant weight as a result of often eating unhealthy and processed food late at night. She ended up putting on ten lbs. before eventually losing the extra weight. As Conrad pointed out, she bites her nails and always has since she was young. She used to take piano as a child, in which she had to keep her nails short, but quit. She still kept her nails short since she had become used to keeping them that way. According to Jeremiah, her left eye squints when she is about to lie and she sucks in her cheeks when nervous. He calls her “an easy read”. She dislikes the use of the term “retarded” when calling something stupid and gets annoyed whenever someone uses it in such a way.

When Belly and Conrad see each other again, Belly finds herself too shocked to react as Conrad simply waves at her. He later gives her a hug while joking calling her “little sis” when Mr. Fisher says how much Conrad has missed “his little sister”.

He even secretly meets with Laurel to convince her to make up with Belly, being shaken when overhearing her cry because of the emotional toll her separation from her mother was mentally putting her through. However, the more time they spend together the more the lingering romantic tension increases between the two.
Soon enough, Conrad finds himself emotionally conflicted regarding his relationship with Belly as well his true heartbroken feelings about her engagement to his brother. After finding out that Jeremiah cheated on Belly during his bachelor party, Conrad is left completely outraged since he thought Jeremiah would treat her right and leaves to calm down.

Conrad says he won’t “pretend” for her anymore and leaves the house, leaving Belly alone on the deck.
The night before the wedding, Belly tells Jeremiah about Conrad’s confession to her. Despite trying to convince him to stay, Jeremiah takes off in a fury. Conrad finds him the following day and attempts to convince him to return to Belly, but he refuses.
Eventually, they end up in an intense and violent fight as both boys begin arguing over who loved Belly more and deserved her. Jeremiah demands Conrad finally admit his true feelings for Belly, fed up with how he has lied about his feelings for her for years. Conrad gives in and confesses that he is in love with Belly and feels he always will be.
This ultimately results in Jeremiah disowning Conrad as his brother. After his violent confrontation with his brother, Conrad says goodbye to Belly to give themselves time apart. Before leaving, he gives her the infinity necklace he failed to give to her years prior (during The Summer I Turned Pretty ) along with implying that he will always love her – declaring that loving her with her was worth all the trouble.
After giving her a kiss on the forehead, he leaves. After this, Conrad and Belly stay apart for three years. However, during her junior year abroad in Spain, Belly receives her first hand written letter from Conrad. He then writes her a series of letters in which he talks about his continued love for her and says he is always thinking about her, even recalling happy moments from their past together.
Initially, Belly won’t write him back until he eventually begs for her to send him something in response. After this, she begins writing him back and they soon stay in contact by writing monthly letters to each other. Another year later, he shows up at her college graduation, resulting in their reunion as a couple again.
Is Jeremiah in love with Belly?
Jeremiah was Belly’s first kiss, abruptly kissing her during a game of Truth or Dare at fourteen years old. Belly had been furious since he stole her first kiss, which she wanted to be special, and he had only done so as a joke and to make Taylor jealous. The two did not have sex during their two year relationship. While Belly came close to believing she was ready to give her virginity to Jeremiah, even seriously considering consummating their relationship during a trip to the beach house one time, she ultimately decided against it. Jeremiah later implies during the couple’s break up that their lack of sexual intimacy was a problem for him. The moment Jeremiah saw Belly as a “girl” and developed feelings for her was during their summer meet up after Belly and her family arrive at Cousin’s Beach in the very beginning of The Summer I Turned Pretty, It was shortly after this when Jeremiah saw Conrad checking Belly out as she walked away to get a pop from the house that he also experienced “crazy jealousy” and realized he liked Belly. The two remained friends after their break up. Jeremiah admits in the final novel that deep down he always knew that Belly and Conrad still loved each other. However, he still dated Belly regardless of it because he loved her and, initially, wanted a relationship despite it. Belly indirectly and unintentionally ruined the brotherly relationship between Jeremiah and Conrad. In the final novel, Jeremiah was jealous of her and Conrad’s lingering feelings for each other. After being fed up with Conrad lying about his true feelings for Belly as well finding out about his secret love confession to her, Jeremiah disowns him. This results in the two not talking to one another for an extended amount of time. When Belly and Jeremiah entered their college years together, this proved to be when they began to meet the rough times of their relationship when seeing their “non-summer” selves and the conflicting parts of their personalities. Whenever the couple ate together, Jeremiah would frequently steal bits of food from Belly’s plate. This heavily annoyed her as she does not like it when people do that, even playfully. While the two got along great during their non-romantic relationship and even had romantic tension together, their college years as a couple proved to be rather unstable and emotionally hard. After they ended their relationship together, it is implied their general relationship smoothed out again. Belly disliked Jeremiah’s habit of not taking things seriously anymore during their relationship and found this trait to be annoying, especially during their engagement and plans for a married life together. As children, they practiced an “ESP connection” where they would sit and try to read each other’s minds. Belly believed Jeremiah could read her mind when, actually, he was able to read her based on her facial reactions. However, they grew to know each other well enough to accurately guess what the other was likely thinking and began to simply call it their “ESP connection”.

Why did Belly and Conrad kiss?
The Summer I Turned Pretty — “Summer” Series Isabel, nicknamed Belly, has grown up with Conrad and Jeremiah Fisher. Her mother, Laurel, is best friends with the boys’ mother, Susannah, so Belly, her mom and her older brother, Steven, have spent every summer for the past 15 years at the Fishers’ beach house in Cousins Beach.
Belly has always been in love with Conrad and has always been pals with Jeremiah, but this year she is about to turn 16, and both boys begin to look at her differently. Belly has blossomed into a lovely young woman, but her appearance isn’t the only thing that has changed at Cousins Beach. Conrad is acting moodier than usual, and Belly learns that he recently quit football, broke up with his girlfriend and began smoking.
Since Belly still adores Conrad, it’s hard for her to see him acting so withdrawn. Belly recalls when Conrad first broke her heart. She was 12 that summer. Conrad took her to the local boardwalk, which she had hoped was a date, but turned out to be a pretext for him to visit a girl he had a crush on.
- Susannah, who is like a second mother to Belly, is worried about Conrad.
- Susannah’s health is frail because she went through a bout of breast cancer and chemo treatments.
- Belly remembers that she and Jeremiah bonded the summer when she was 13, because they both overhead Susannah talking to Laurel about her cancer treatments and crying over the possibility of a mastectomy.
From that moment, Belly became a friend that Jeremiah could rely on for support during moments of family tragedy. Belly’s 14th summer threatened to ruin her friendship with Jeremiah, however. Belly brought her best female friend, Taylor, to Cousins Beach, and Taylor immediately began flirting with both Fisher boys.
Taylor decided to try to win Conrad’s heart, but Conrad wasn’t receptive to her attention. Jeremiah was, so she flirted a lot with Jeremiah. During a game of truth or dare, Jeremiah kissed Belly in order to make Taylor jealous. It hurt Belly’s feelings because it was her first kiss, and she wanted the moment to be shared with someone she really liked, not with her close friend.
In the present, Jeremiah teaches Belly how to drive a stick shift, since she’ll be turning 16 and getting her license. Steven leaves the beach house to go on a college road trip with his dad, leaving Belly without her brother as a buffer between her and the Fisher boys.

- Clay, one of their neighbors, invites her to his Fourth of July bonfire.

Later, Jeremiah asks Belly to forgive Conrad for his bossy behavior because he’s going through a tough time emotionally.
- Belly notices that Susannah is taking many naps and doesn’t socialize with the rest of the family like she usually does. Since Mr.
- Fisher has not visited the beach house even once, Belly speculates that their marriage might be in trouble.
- An impending divorce would explain Susannah’s reclusiveness and Conrad’s mood swings.
Cam invites Belly to a party at his friend’s house. Conrad and Jeremiah insist on also attending the party so they can protect Belly. Jeremiah sings a love song on the karaoke machine and dedicates it to Belly and Cam’s new summer romance, embarrassing Belly in front of everyone at the party.

- Belly and Jeremiah manage to get Conrad away from the other guy before things get violent, ending Belly’s date with Cam in a very unsatisfying way.

For Belly, the moment of close contact brings up all her old feelings for Conrad and she realizes she’s still in love with him.

- Laurel and Susannah invite Cam over for dinner with the whole family, but it’s awkward because Conrad doesn’t come down for dinner and Jeremiah spends the meal making fun of Cam.
- Conrad comes home drunk one night and turns on blaringly loud music.
Belly wonders whether his sudden change in character will finally make her stop loving him. However, each time Belly meets Cam, her thoughts go to Conrad. Cam realizes that Belly’s obsession with Conrad is still ongoing, so he and Belly decide not to contact each other when the summer is over.

- When the movie is over, Jeremiah and Belly are left alone, and Jeremiah confesses that he has feelings for her.

Jeremiah’s confession gives Belly the strength to find Conrad and admit that she still loves him. He says he’s not the one for her, but she counters that she knows he likes her, too.
