The Cousins Beach house is under threat in The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2, so what happens to it?
Much of the drama in The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 revolves around Susannah's death and how it affects each of the characters. In the wake of Susannah's passing, Conrad and Jeremiah learn that their estranged aunt Julia co-owns Susannah's beloved beach house. Not only that but she is now trying to sell it with their distant father Adam.
The season follows Conrad, Jeremiah and Belly in their quest to save the house and we now know if they actually do it.
Is the beach house sold in The Summer I Turned Pretty books?
Fans of the books will already know that the show has made some significant changes to the books. For example aunt Julia and cousin Skye weren't in the books. Instead, in It's Not Summer Without You, Conrad and Jeremiah's father, Adam, tries to sell the house completely of his own accord. However, the central drama is the same.
When Conrad tells a real estate agent visiting the house that it's no longer being put up for sale, Adam shows up to inform Conrad that it will be sold no matter what. In the series, Julia is the one always shutting down Conrad.
Just like the series, the book results in Jeremiah deciding to throw one last party at the house. The party ends with Belly drunk and calling her mum Laurel to help.
In both the book and the series, Laurel is originally outraged that Belly lied to her about being with Conrad and Jeremiah at the Cousins beach house. Laurel tries to take Belly home. However, Belly refuses and says she wishes Susannah were her mother. She also says Susannah would never forgive her for not saving the house. Laurel reacts by slapping Belly.
However, Laurel then apologises for the slap and for not being there for Belly as they were both dealing with their grief. She agrees to help save the house and invites Adam back. Laurel then persuades Adam to keep the house because it means everything to the boys. In the series, Laurel gets Adam to buy the house off of Julia.
In both the book and the series, Adam agrees on the condition that Conrad returns to school and passes his exams. Belly and Jeremiah help Conrad study for his exams, Conrad passes and the house remains theirs.
There's also a lot of love triangle drama and Belly decides who she belongs with. To find out who Belly chooses in the books, check out our breakdown of who she ends up with here.
