Be True to Me by Adele Griffin
A Book Review by Mariana Simpson, West Orange Public Library Teen Book Reviewer
Adele’s Griffin’s Book Be True To Me is an intriguing story of young romance. In Sunken Haven, Jean meets Gil first and instantly falls in love with Gil. Since Jean had the advantage of meeting Gil first in New York, they went out for dinner and dancing, and at the end of the night, Jean receives a kiss from Gil. Of course, Jean thinks that there is an instant connection between the two. But, when Gil comes to Sunken Haven and is introduced as Carpies, Sunken Haven’s own town celebrity nephew, everyone thinks he is cute and would kill to date him.
Out of all the girls, Gil could've chosen, he chose Fritz, Jean’s very own arch nemesis. Fritz, is worried that something is going on between Fritz and Gil. Could it be that Gil would turn his back on Fritz and secretly date Jean? Or is Fritz just worrying over nothing? This book is all about love and rivalries and filled with a lot of drama. It is well detailed and very fast paced.
I would recommend Be True to Me for people who love drama and romance books.
