Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman is a girl power book wrapped up in Shakespeare! The book is based on Shakespeare's play Much Ado About Nothing, which is a comical tale of mistaken identities and thwarted love. Geena, Hero, and Amber, work at Triple Shot Betty, a drive-through coffee shop. The only thing Geena wants this summer is for her best friend, Amber, and her cousin, Hero, to become best friends. She envisions lazy summer days of painting toenails together and having slumber parties. Things get complicated when Hero and Amber don't get along, begin fighting over guys, and plot against Geena! It's one wild summer that Geena will never forget!
This is a great summer read! It's full of romance, adventure, it's hilarious, and you could read in it one day! I must caution that it contains sexual references and language. Other than that, it's a great story about girl power and the power of friendship! After reading this, you will want to give your best friend a huge hug!
