But not for long. Geena and her bestie Amber work at the Triple Shot Betty coffee shop. Throw in a jealous wanna-be boyfriend, a sexy foreign exchange student, and an arch nemesis in the roles of leading men and things get a little convoluted. Much Ado About Nothing is one of my favorite works by Shakespeare.
It combined a little D. There’s a little bit of worthless knowledge that will never come in confesionnes unless you’re playing trivia in a bar one day. I looked down and saw a long trail of goose bumps stretching from my shoulder to my wrist. Worst, my nipples were standing at attention, just like they had in the frozen food aisle.
My body is so disloyal. My inner child had a flashback to the days of sticker collecting and coveting the scratch-n-sniffs. Why was there such cpnfesiones market for toys that smelled back in the dark ages? Stickers, Cabbage Patch Kids that smelled like baby powder, Strawberry Shortcake dolls that smelled like.

Apr 09, Jacob Proffitt rated it did not like it Shelves: I only got 32 pages into this book before I had to stop. Unlike previous unfinished books, there’s nothing wrong with the writing.
Well, not in the way the words are strung together, at any rate. The problem is that the main characters are so completely unlikeable. Seriously, Amber is a stone-cold bitch. You can tell she’s supposed to be really cool—an individualist with tattoos who wants to grow up to be a “body artist” and who apparently revels in the nickname Blowjob Beezie.
Hero is rich and s I only got 32 pages into this book before I had to stop. Hero is rich and shy and self-involved enough to wall herself off with a new acquaintance just because they can speak Italian together. And Geena is a pushover who is supposed to be smart but somehow misses that the two girls she wants to get along together have absolutely nothing in common—kind of the same way matter and anti-matter don’t have things in common.
Now, that’s bad enough but then we meet John. He’s the popular graduating class president who practically oozes evil—but is somehow still popular and well-liked.
Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty
Oh, right, I forgot to mention the stoner “Dog” Berry who, betyt incoherent, doesn’t manage anything even a little amusing. There’s more, but I’ll spare you. So Jody Gehrman wants to invoke Shakespeare. Unlike Shakespeare, however, she forgot to include people to like. And humor, she forgot that, too.
Or anything a normal person can relate to for that matter. I didn’t get far enough to know if the romance pans out. I rather suspect not.

Hero, understandably, is not about to back down after being stereotyped and insulted. 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.
So even if they dislike each other, maybe Amber and Hero can call a truce, making a deal that will benefit both of them without letting Geena know about it, since their plans just happen to involve her and a certain smart and cute bicyclist.
However, I can say that Confessions is an enjoyable, if not particularly memorable, read. But it was humorous, though not laugh out loud funny, and I found both the romantic and the will-they-all-become-friends? I really enjoyed Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty. Jody was really able to capture the ‘high school’ feel of this book. The issues were real, as were the characters who reminded me of people I knew in school. It’s so great when you can put yourself in the story and relate to what’s going on.
This book followed a nice progression of events which made the reading flow.
I was anxious to see how the story would unfold and wasn’t disappointed in the least. I’m very much looking forward to beginning Triple Shot Betty’s in Love. Nov 05, Susan rated it liked it Shelves: Geena snags a job for her good-girl best friend Hero at the same coffee shop where she works with her bad-girl best conffesiones Amber. Instead of the chummy summer she expects, she gets caught in the crossfire of the insta-feud that ignites between Amber and Hero. She also must deal with the fallout from romantic complications surrounding Hero, who is sought after as the new face in town.
If any of this sounds un familiar, I’ll give you a clue: This is one of those books where it probably does help to be about fourteen years old when ed read it.
Babelcube – Víctor martínez
It has great cover appeal and a catchy title, and it had me until the exact minute I realized that the use of the name “Hero” was no coincidence and it went downhill from there as I watched every scene that I loved turned inside out. I can’t totally be blamed here–it’s my favorite of Shakespeare’s comedies so I was bound to be touchy. Geena and Ben’s semi-quips can’t even remotely compare to Beatrice and Benedick, but that being said I could totally envision this being turned into a hit teen chick flick probably with Amanda Bynes or Demi Lovato in one of the lead roles and so I can’t deny that this is going to have a lot of appeal for a certain demographic of teen girls.
Perhaps somewhere an enterprising teacher or librarian could plan a book and play discussion double feature so kids could get the benefit of Shakespeare’s language with all the modern day relatability of Gehrman’s story. Apr 29, Rachael rated it it was amazing. This rivalry makes it difficult for the three girls to work together at the Triple Shot Betty coffee shack. And a complicated love tangle involving the two enemies and two boys only makes it worse.
Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman
Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty was a very fun and enjoyable read, as one could predict from the awesome title. Another exciting aspect of this novel was the partially unpredictable plot.
I was able to foresee the romance between Geena and Ben, bit I was very surprised by the events at the ending of the novel. Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty was a highly entertaining read that I recommend to everyone. Jul 10, Kristi rated it really liked it Shelves: Just when Geena thinks her summer is ruined, mysteriously Hero and Amber start getting along.
But it seems they only collaborate to get Geena and get her out of her “boy-hostile” attitude. When the girls find evidence of his crime, they concoct a plan to spotlight his true nature tri;le and for all! I devoured this book in one sitting! The dialogue is hilarious.
The characters are well developed especially Geena, she comes into her own throughout the novel. The character dynamics were displayed wonderfully as well! If you are looking for a fun summer read that is well written and beyond funny, pick up Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty! Btw, bethy cover is scratch-n-sniff, how cool is that!
