Greek: Double Date by Marsha Warner
Harlequin Teen, May 2010
Casey Cartwright, Zeta Beta Zeta sorority sister at Cyprus-Rhodes College, gets herself into a bit of a bind when she agrees to go to an engineering event with her brother’s nerdy, love-struck roommate Dale—the event just happens to be the same night as the All-Greek Formal, where she already has a date with the cute new transfer student Rob.
As if two guys aren’t enough for one night, there’s also Cappie, her slacker ex-boyfriend who always seems to show up in Casey’s life—and who she may or may not still be in love with.
So what’s a nice, ambitious sorority girl to do? Try to balance all three of course, with the help of her sweet but slightly nerdy younger brother Rusty and her best friend Ashleigh, president of ZBZ.
Greek: Double Date is a fun book that tackles both the crazy lives of college students and the difficulty of working through relationships. These relationships are interesting, but the book does often get weighed down by the need to catch the reader up on the characters’ history. In that way, it’s sometimes difficult to think of the book as its own story. This book would probably be most loved by fans of ABC Family’s Greek, but it does do a good job of tackling three seasons’ worth of history for readers unfamiliar with the show.
