    1 thought on “Be True to Me”

    1. Be True to Me is a story of rivalry, jealousy and betrayal. I also thought it was a really beautiful piece of writing. The story takes place in the 1970s on Fire Island, and is told in alternating first person POV by two girls who have just graduated from high school. Jean is a sophisticated New Yorker, a girl who has always felt inferior to her glamorous older sister. Fritz is a Southerner, and feels out of place in this summer community of wealthy New Yorkers. There's a history of rivalry betw [...]

    2. Set on Fire Island in 1976, this is a story about two girls -- Jean and Fritz -- and the new boy they're fighting over. It's a story of heat and romance, of summer, and about two girls who don't hate each other, don't tear one another down, but who are fiercely competitive, both on the tennis court and off. Griffin can write twists in her stories and this one is no exception. I'd come to accept something as the resolution and then BAM it was pulled from me (in a good way). These are rich white k [...]

    3. 3.5 starsSee this review and others at A Thousand Lives of Frankie LovelyI received this sneak peek from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis review is for an excerpt of this book only. I was happy to be able to read the first few chapters of this book provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The StoryThis story This story takes place over the summer of ‘76 and follows the lives of two rival girls (Jean and Fritz) who spend their summers in the upper class exclusive be [...]

    4. So, this will be pretty short because I didn’t really love this story. I guess exclusive and ritzy island stories aren’t for me because I didn’t like We Were Liars either. I wanted a fun summer story of love and drama, but the abundance of pettiness just made the story drag for me.Things I Liked:This book really delivered on the summer drama and teen angst. It was over the top and very entertaining. It also helped the plot to move quickly.Things I Didn’t Like:All of the characters were s [...]

    5. In the summer of 1976, to teen girls fall in love with the new boy visiting their home on Fire Island. How far with they go to win his heart?I read this book as part of a blog tour I was participating in. However, I disiked it and opted out of the review for the tour. I decided to write one now anyway. I always try not to bash books in reviews and so pair my critiques with complements. But in Be True to Me, I'm sorry to say there are very few complements I can give, and those are generally under [...]

    6. Be True To Me is the story of two young women and a summer that will change their lives forever. There was romance, drama, fierce competition, and enough juicy gossip to keep me turning page after page. The characters were intriguing and the setting was perfect. I loved the gorgeous beach imagery mixed with days from the past. As much as I enjoyed the setting, there were a few things that bugged me a little bit as well. I don't particularly love it when there is unnecessary female drama or compe [...]

    7. Summery with an edge. A book that made me miss those childhood summers of freedom and friends. It's also completely addicting and I'll be so tired now that I've stayed up all night reading.I was so excited for this book because-- 70's, and summer, and ADELE GRIFFIN. I know Ms. Griffin doesn't make most people's lists of fave authors, but she's super high on mine. You wanna know why?? It's because her books fucking GO FOR IT. They aren't perfect, and things don't always go the way I want them to [...]

    8. ** I received a complementary copy of BE TRUE TO ME from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.**Meh. 1.5 stars 1976 Fire Island. 2 girls, 1 boy on a collision course. Jean lives in the shadow of her older sister Daphne, who's off to Europe for the summer. Last year, her tennis rival Fitz captured the title that was supposed to be hers. On the eve of Daphne's departure, family friend Gil notices Jean, not her prettier sister. For once, Jean outshines her prettier sister. Then Fitz arrives f [...]

    9. * I received this as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review *2.5 starts I'm going to start by saying that this book has a two tropes I'm not okay with, which is why I rated it as I did. This first is cheating. I really hate cheating in general as a trope it's literally one of my least favorite things in books. The next is girl hate. I hate in when authors push girls against each other and make them full of hate and trash talk each other. In this circumstance it was a lack of will [...]

    10. Liked it.I had a bit of a time connecting with the book & some of the characters. For 1, this book takes place before my time LOL. And 2, I've never had to compete for a guy's attention & affection.Poor Fritz. She didn't deserve that dumb shit happening to her. I shed a few tears for her. Poor baby.And Jean, I started out kinda liking her. By the end of the book, Jean irritated the hell outta me.All in all, a good book.Received as a Gr giveaway.

    11. cliché cliché cliché cliché cliché Why 1976? Why do the sisters have to be fighting with each other? Over a boy? This is what screamed "SUMMER 2017!!!" to Algonquin Young Readers?If you're in the mood for rich white people drama, it's been done much better.

    12. Jean is determine to make this summer one of her best. She returns to Sunken Haven with a plan to win the heart of Gil, an island newcomer, and to reinvent herself. However, her plans are stymied, when Gil falls for Fritz, an island outsider. The tug of war over Gil fuels the rivalry, which meets a tragic ending.This story takes place during the summer of 1976. I was only 4 years old, but I fondly remember the bicentennial. Griffin peppered the story with just enough references to bring me back. [...]

    13. Lots of good 1970s details, but more of a high school book. Very slow paced compared to middle grade books. The party at the beginning of the book with the neighbors was spot on. I could practically taste the inevitable Jell-o mold that was lurking somewhere!

    14. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/Be True To Me is YA at its best - a literary read with an historic milieu that is engaging and stays with you long after the story has finished. Characters are conflicted but very much a product of their upbringing - each making decisions and mistakes that are both heartbreaking but also poignantly teen. The writing is engaging: straightforward but evocative. And the story arc is crisp and surprisingly brisk for a slow burn type of p [...]

    15. This story follows two girls during the summer where they travel to Sunken Island to stay. Jean is a girl from the upper class whose family has been on Sunken Island for years. Jean is finally spending the summer without her over bearing big sister and feels this is her summer. Fritz comes to the island to stay with a family friend every summer. Jean and Fritz have had some history with a tennis tournament last summer. Now Jean and Fritz are at it again for Gil’s attention a newcomer to Sunken [...]

    16. I received this book from Netgalley as a early advanced copy. This was a really cute beach type of read! I think was like Dirty Dancing, but it was on the beach instead of a resort. It still had the same feel because the two girl characters reminded me of the sisters in the movie. I really liked the plot, and the time setting it was in. It'll be a perfect book to read while on vacation this summer. I also really love the cover, it makes me happy!

    17. *Review copy received from publisherI struggled to get into this story for the first half and considered giving up. It did improve as the characters developed although their depth was overshadowed by the dramatic angst which dominates the book.The exceptionally close parallels to We Were Lies by E. Lockhart gave the story a tired, uninspired taint which it probably doesn't merit.

    18. I was excited to read this book because it was set in 1976. It quickly faded into boredom. This is a love triangle with girl hate. There are two girls who are on opposite ends of the island life. The boy comes along and plays them both against each other. It gets two stars instead of one because she did have a few cultural references to the time period

    19. Be True to Me is one of those epic love stories that you can’t get out of your head for days after finishing it. I picked it up because I LOVE the cover and it was compared to We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. In many ways, it was like We Were Liars, but it was different too.Be True to Me is about two girls, both falling desperately in love with the same boy. It takes place in a sun-soaked island community where wealthy families gather every summer. Jean comes from one of these wealthy families, b [...]

    20. While I appreciate the unique twist that alternating perspectives between two love rivals offers, what I've read of this book so far didn't particularly interest me.Jean is a compelling but confusing and unpleasant character, and despite it being told in first person, I haven't had any engagement or understanding of her actions at all. Her relationship with Gil seems like an instalove sort of thing, although things might certainly change further into the book.Admittedly, the bulk of the story is [...]

    21. BE TRUE TO ME is unlike any book I have ever read--set in 1970s Fire Island, and featuring a 'summer romance' that is actually three teens caught in a dangerous love triangle. Griffin captures the imperfectness of loving someone and her words sweep you away to a mindset where you know there is no way for everyone to turn out happy, but for some reason you still hope they will figure out their lives

    22. Be True to Me landed on my radar as soon as I saw that Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian, two of my favorite YA authors, provided such positive blurbs for it. Then I saw the comparison to E. Lockhart's We Were Liars (if you haven't read this book, you must! It's deliciously twisty!). At that point it was a done deal: I was reading Be True to Me no matter what. As it turns out, Be True to Me was the perfect slow-burning summer read. A coming-of-age tale at its heart, Be True to Me is infuriating and h [...]

    23. BORING.DULL.Uneventful.Forgettable characters, bad dialogue, and a ho-hum plot that felt like an afterthought. Do yourself a favor, skip this book.---------------Full review can be found here: agingerlyreview.wordpressYou want the truth about this book? BORING. Snoozefest. This book was dull as dull can get.Short recap: Two girls fight over the same guy during the summer of 1976.Pretty direct and two the point, no? That’s about all you need to know when it comes to this book. Do not go into th [...]

    24. I received a copy from Netgalley.I actually had a request wish granted for this one. An enjoyable read, though very meandering and almost no plot until right before the end. The novel tells the story of two different girls on an exclusive island during the summer of 1976 and the boy they both want the attention of. I don’t quite get why it had to be set in 1976, the setting didn’t really do anything for the story. The setting didn’t really make much difference, the plot could have easily w [...]

    25. I'm so sad to say this, but I really did not like this book. It was so disappointing to me.I was immediately sold when I heard that this book took place in 1976. I thought it was be really cool to experience a contemporary in a different decade, especially the 70's. Unfortunately, had I not known beforehand, I wouldn't have even been able to tell the time setting was 1975 until about halfway through the book. Where my disliking for this book really spans is that the characters were so incredible [...]

    26. I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The feel when you want to like a book because the set up sounds interestingd then the main character drives you to rip out your hair. Jean lacked self esteem to the point where she was the most self absorbed/selfish character I've ever experienced. She's that friend that falls instantly in love, analyzes every little thing the guy does, and then throws a fit when he doesn't call her because she's psychotic. So what is your soluti [...]
