The bare brutality of certain scenes–like the fact coffee will make you use the bathroom like there’s no tomorrow, poop and all–underlaid the sheer hilariousness of it all in a fun, relatable, and even realistic way. Triple Shot Bettys in Love. Showing of 29 reviews. The Dragon Ridge Tombs. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. While I do understand this book is a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothingwhich is ridiculous in itself as most Shakespearean plays arethat does not excuse how one-dimensional and cartoony the characters were or how abruptive and unnatural the major events played out.

I have yet to find a cozy, coffee book that measures up to my expectations. The title should be at least 4 characters long. Stickers, Cabbage Patch Kids that smelled like baby powder, Strawberry Shortcake dolls that smelled like. One lesson I learned from all this was that no matter how different or whatever your personality is, it won’t matter and that you can work with someone and solve things out.


However, she falls in love with Claudio, an Italian exchange student. Unfortunately, Amber and Hero originally hate each other and cannot wait for their time together to end. Seriously, Amber is a stone-cold bitch. Geena is smart, funny, and not afraid to flip off boys who hassle her while she is skateboarding. Gehrman blends realistic teen characters who use slang, curse, and talk about sex with skillfully descriptive writing, leaving readers with a double shot of a highly caffeinated and hard-to-put-down book.

Oh, right, I forgot to mention the stoner “Dog” Berry who, while incoherent, doesn’t manage anything even a little amusing. They were all united in their anger toward whoever they felt wronged their friend and it was cute.

I’ve probably said this in every review I’ve ever written, but I’m such a character-driven person, it’s not even funny. If you have ever been scorned by a guy and then he slandered you, this book of delicious revenge is for you. When the girls find evidence of his crime, they concoct a plan to spotlight his true nature once and for all! Hero, understandably, is not about to back down after being stereotyped and insulted.

Hero goes home, and Geena hooked up with Ben and they became serious. Jan 24, Kelly and the Book Boar betgy it liked it Shelves: Topless ot taken with a cell phone are posted on MySpace. Speak Easy, Speak Love. However, upon meeting, Amber and Hero dislike each other and are not afraid to let Geena, or each other, know it.

I read the book Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty. So this is my second time reading this novel.

I’m in my thirties, I didn’t grow up in some small town, I grew up in geyrman cities, near SF, CA and my life was nothing like this.


Geena can’t wait to spend summer vacation with her two best girls: The star rating reflects overall quality and learning potential.

On through the story a little, they try to set up and Geena and Ben and it works. They have never met each other but Geena counts on them hitting it off right away. The author gerhman brand names throughout the story, from soda drinks to cars to types of wine.

While the drama of this situation might cofnessions outlandish to adults, the author touches on a very real concern of Internet safety.

I actually think the book would’ve been better portrayed as a comedic fantasy. The Search for TK. They’re all under 18!!! The Dark Days Deceit. In a summer as eventful as this one, if all three girls don’t unite they will have to face impending consequences. She is not one to sit around and be dumped on or watch as her friends suffer a boy’s egotistical gehrnan. Is it any good?
