She learns that taking chances pays off and that change is a given. Belly spends every summer at the Cousins Beach home of her mother’s closest friend. She was the youngest and only girl among the four children, thus as a child, she felt excluded. But Conrad and Jeremiah have noticed a significant change in the past year this summer.
