    Summer can not come quickly enough, Jenny!

    In case you weren't a YA-obsessed teenage girl in the early 2010s, here's what you need to know: The Summer I Turned Pretty follows Isabel, aka "Belly," a teenage girl who spends summers with her mom and brother along with her mom's best friends and her two sons, Conrad and Jeremiah. The trilogy spans Belly's life as she navigates her relationship with her mother, Conrad and Jeremiah, her best friend, and herself.

    Cue astronomical levels of *teen angst.*

    According to Variety, the show — which will stream on Amazon — has been greenlit for eight episodes (so far) with Han herself writing the pilot and acting as executive producer and co-showrunner. We love to see it!!!

    It's still unknown whether the show will cover the entire trilogy or just the first book, but either way, we can't wait to see this series come to life. And it seems like people on Twitter agree:
