  • 13,044 Words
  • 86 Pages

Cherry Avenue was a street that seemed to be filled with diligent, hardworking and happy children who were whip-smart, loved to study and play sports. Certainly not Betty. There were the twins, Misha and George, two peas in a pod, then there was the genius, Miriam who recently moved in from far-flung England and lived next door to the twins. Then there was Betty. Betty was so lazy, it was beyond belief. She had to be the laziest kid around. But that wasn't the worst of it. Betty was also a liar, a thief and a truant who managed to con her parents into believing she was a model child they could be proud of. But her facade was about to be exposed, and she would never be the same again.

About the Book

The Better Betty is a plaintive story that highlights the travails of adolescence and the devastating consequence of covert teenage rebellion caused by unwitting parental neglect and ignorance. It is also about the dangers of keeping bad friends, the power of forgiveness and the promise of redemption.
