We also get to see more of Steven’s perspective in this series instead of viewing him strictly through the eyes of Belly. Not only does Steven land a summer job at the country club (I’ll get to that in a second) but he also has his eye on a certain girl from the club. Romantic storylines for everyone! Also, in the book, Steven leaves Cousins early to look at colleges with his dad — if I recall that detail correctly. So we get to spend more time with Steven, which is a big bonus.
