Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman
(Hardcover, Dial Books)
Geena is ready for summer. She's got a great job serving up coffee and she'll be working with her two best friends. Geena has it all pictured - it'll be a summer filled with caffeine and girl bonding. But Geena's two gal pals don't hit it off. In fact, Hero and Amber kind of hate each other. Add in a couple of cute guys and things become really strained between Geena and her friends. Geena's simple soy latte summer is becoming a triple shot, no whip, no foam, sugar-free vanilla, with sprinkles on top latte.
Ok, I just couldn't resist adding in some coffee lingo there. But it does flow with the book. Geena has a nice, relaxing summer planned and then it suddenly becomes very complicated (hopefully I made that clear with my coffee talk). Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty was a light, fun summer read with a great girl power message. Some guys in the book got their girl and some, well, they got what they deserved and how can you not like that? Geena and her friends made me laugh, and wish for a cup of coffee.
And the coffee in the cup on the cover is a scratch-and-sniff. I've never seen this before on a book and I must admit I was pretty excited to scratch it and actually smell coffee! Hmm, maybe that's why I had a sudden desire for coffee...
