HONEY, BABY, SWEETHEART by Deb Caletti


HONEY, BABY, SWEETHEART by Deb Caletti

It is summer in the Northwest town of Nine Mile Falls, and sixteen-year-old Ruby McQueen, ordinarily dubbed The Quiet Girl, finds herself hanging out with gorgeous, rich, thrill-seeking Travis Becker. But Ruby is in over her head and starts risking more and more when she's with him.

In an effort to keep Ruby occupied, Ruby's mother, Ann, drags Ruby to the weekly book club she runs. When it is discovered that one of the group's member is the tragic love story they are reading, Ann and Ruby spearheaded a reunion between the long-ago lovers. But for Ruby, this mission turns out to be much more than just a road trip.....


This novel was a disapointment in my eyes. I did not perticularly enjoy it. The characters were interesting, but did not hold my interst. The story seamed almost far fetched in ways. Ruby is an extreamly differnt person when she is with Travis and she doesn't know why. Travis has an interest for crimanal projects that Ruby is being brought into. She deosnt want to but when she tries to get out of Travis 's hobbies he pulls her back in. But in the end she finds who she really is... that is the whole story. Then the book tells about a freind they help find a true love, and hear dad is stringing Ann, Ruby's mother, along when he hides a big secert. But, that part of the story needs more detail.
