Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman and a Chance to WIN!



Sorry for the lack of updates, guys! I've tried to post like 5 times this past weekend, but due to some seriously nasty storms in my area, the power kept getting knocked out. But yay for the electricity people, because it's back, and it looks like it's back for good!


Geena Sloane, despite her skater girl stereotype, entertains fantasies of her cousin Hero and best friend Amber becoming lifelong pals this summer while bonding over their shared job at the shoe box sized coffee shop, Triple Shot Betty and painting their toenails at late night slumber parties. But nothing can be further from the truth when Hero arrives in town, and Amber decides to hate her right on the spot, for seemingly no particular reason. The situation isn't helped any when John Jamieson, Amber's ex, falls for Hero. But Hero isn't interested in anyone but Claudio, the hot Italian guy who is interning at her father's winery. One thing's for certain: Geena, Amber, and Hero's sixteenth summer will be special all right, just not in the way that they imagined.

Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty is laugh out loud funny and a fully engaging read. Geena is one rocking character that nearly every teen girl can relate to…amusing, smart, intensely loyal, and just trying to make her way through the summer with minimal bloodshed between her two best friends. Though a spin off of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, this read never becomes predictable or boring. While funny, romantic, and breezy, it also has some serious tones as it deals with absentee fathers and the consequences of partying too hard. But overall, this is a kick butt read about a group of smart, confident girls who are a force to be reckoned with.


You might also like Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks!


And now for the WIN part of today's post. I'm in a good mood, seeing as I know have my computer and running water back (I'm so spoiled, I know), so I declare today RANDOM COMMENTER WINNER DAY, and I'm going to be giving away an ARC of KITTY, KITTY by Michele Jaffe! Just leave me a comment, and you'll automatically be entered to win!
