Book Talk [#12]: Be True To Me by Adele Griffin

I would like to thank the publisher for sending me an advance reader’s copy through Net Galley in exchange of a honest review.


Pages: 336

Book Birthday: June 13 2017


It’s the summer of 1976 on Fire Island, where feathered hair and the Bicentennial celebration reign. Jean, a sometimes cruel, often insecure, and always envious rich girl, is accustomed to living in her glamorous older sister’s shadow. So when Gil Burke, a handsome newcomer with uncertain ties to one of the most powerful families in the exclusive enclave of Sunken Haven, notices Jean—not her sister—Jean is smitten. Then Fritz, a girl from outside the gilded gates who humiliated Jean in the Island’s tennis championship last year, falls for Gil herself. Soon the girls are competing for much more than a tennis trophy, with higher stakes than either of them can imagine.

Told through the alternating perspectives of Jean and Fritz, as they experience feeling like an outsider and first love.


This review will be short because it’s a DNF. I stopped at page 120.

I cannot take how petty both of the girls are. They fight against a guy who I think likes that their were girl fighting for him. I don’t like those kinds of character, they always gets to my nerves.
