Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman


Geena can't wait to spend summer vacation at the Triple Shot Betty coffee shop with her best friend, Amber, and her cousin, Hero. But Amber and Hero hate each other on sight, and Geena's dreams of a girl-bonding summer fly out the window-then vanish entirely when a few cute (okay, drop-dead gorgeous) guys enter the picture. All is not what it seems, though, and in a story of mistaken identities, summer high jinks, and just enough romance, Geena and her friends learn that when Bettys unite, they can take on the most powerful force in their world: a hot guy.
( from Amazon)


Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty was an excellent book that had a mix of friendship, drama, boy trouble, and a secret plot to take down one of most popular boys in school. It is told in a diary format explaining the events of Geena's days a little while after they have occurred. I felt this was a great way to tell the story because you really got to know Geena and see a peek into her world. Plus, she was a hilarious narrator.

One of my favorite parts of the story were the characters. Hero, Geena, and Amber felt like they could be some of my best friends if they existed in real life. Since, they had the everyday problems I have like friendship issues, self esteem issues, and boy issues. I really think that any girl can relate to these three.

The plot was interesting even though the whole girl power and first love thing is a bit overused. It was fun seeing the problems the characters got themselves into and how their first loves developed. Plus, Gehrman's writing made the story even better.

Overall, Confessions Of A Triple Shot Betty was an excellent book that I suggest to all ages. I can't wait to see the situations the girls get themselves into in the next book, Triple Shot Bettys In Love which is out now!

Grade: A-

Confessions Of A Triple Shot Betty is out now in paperback and you can find more info about it here!


  1. I'm planning on beginning it soon! Looks cute, and I love the scratch-and-sniff jacket on the hardcover!

  2. this book reminds me sooo much of the movie John Tucker Must Die.
