Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer--they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along

"He cocked hishead and said, "Something looks different about you Belly."

I braced myself for the punch line.  "What? I got contacts." I wasn't completely used to myself without hte glasses either.  My best friend Taylor had been gtrying to conive me to get cotnacts cince trh esixth grade, and I'd finally listened.

He smiled.  "It's not that.  You just look different".

What teenage girl wouldn't love to get this attention and feel pretty.  Belly is finally getting what she deserves and she has turned into a butterfly.  It is a dream come true for any girl.
