The Summer I Turned Pretty is Jenny Han’s latest novel adaptation to hit the market but is it available on Netflix? The rom-com follows a young girl Bella, who visits her family friends’ beach house for the annual summer vacation. She shares a strong bond with the brothers Jeremiah and Conrad but that summer their dynamics change as both the brothers fall for the same girl. The streamer had previously adapted Jenny’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before to mass appeal. But it turns out Amazon Prime Video took a leaf out of the streaming giant’s book and has a solid rom-com fluff in its hand with The Summer I Turned Pretty streaming on Amazon instead of Netflix. However, Netflix is home to plenty of other rom-coms like The Summer I Turned Pretty that you can stream to get your rom-com fix.
