It's the summer before their senior year and Nina, Avery, and Mel are not spending their time together. Nina is going to leadership camp all the way in California, and Avery and Mel are working at a local Irish diner. What happens to all of them over the summer is so unexpected that no one can predict how it will change their friendship forever.
At camp, Nina falls in love with Steve, her eco-warrior boyfriend. Steve is her first love, but he also happens to live in Oregon, 3000 miles away from where she lives in New York. Both are determined to remain together until they can see each other again the following year when they both get into Stanford for college, but until then they have to get through senior year.
Nina comes home with her head full of Steve, only to stumble into shocking news: over the summer, Avery and Mel have kissed, and now they're a couple! Nina is left feeling like a third wheel, but all is not paradise in her friends' land. While Mel is certain she's a lesbian, Avery's having mixed feelings. Is it possible she only likes girls when the girl is her best friend, Mel?
Senior year is a time of maturation and understanding for the three members of the "Bermudez triangle" (called that because Bermudez is Nina's last name). While I found the ending a little too perfect, THE BERMUDEZ TRIANGLE is an excellently written book that explores the complications of love and friendship.
This book fell short for me. There wasn't really anything special about it. Three friends, one goes away, and the other two stay back, and fall in love. So what if they are all girls? I found the storyline snooze-worthy and I would just skip this book.
An excellent read! It really brings the trials of teenage friendships to life and make you appreciate what you have. A wonderful story of who am i? I love it! :)
i have enjoyed everything i've read by Johnson, and this is no exception. very quick interesting read
