Jody is a fantastic author and has a fun narrative to help you glide through the book. Do teens think “everyone” is drinking, having sex, and smoking pot? Want personalized picks that fit your family? Refresh and shoh again.

She won’t act stupid just to get a boy’s attention. The problem is that the main characters are so completely unlikeable. Toss in a few hot guys Geena can hardly wait for summer. Geena’s cousin Hero parents, were big Shakespeare fans is the “pure innocent one” who ends up getting burned by John too, when she fails to fall for his devilish good looks. But it was humorous, though dhot laugh out loud funny, and I found both the romantic and the will-they-all-become-friends?


It’s up to the Triple Shot Bettys, armed and armored with a legion of wronged girls, to set things straight once and for all. I read it when it first came out a couple years ago and loved it then. I absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a YA summer romance filled novel. gehrkan

I couldn’t have been more wrong. The problem is they don’t.

Not helping matters is the fact that the hottest guy in Sonoma, the guy Amber hooked up with when she first moved to town, is interested in Hero, but Hero is not interested in him.
