Publishers Description

Grade 9 Up-Johnson begins this exceptional novel in a lightweight fashion but quickly segues into more serious issues that affect the three young women who make up the Bermudez Triangle. It is the summer before their senior year in Saratoga Springs, NY. At first, organized, serious Nina has trouble adjusting to her leadership workshop at Stanford University. Although she desperately misses Avery and Mel, who are waitresses at a restaurant back home, she quickly falls head over heels for eco-warrior Steve, who has grown up in a commune on the West Coast-so different from Nina's secure middle-class experience. When she returns to New York, she immediately senses that Mel and Avery are keeping secrets and soon discovers that they have become lovers. Rocked to the core, Nina wishes them happiness, but feels excluded and lonely, especially as her long-distance relationship begins to deteriorate. As is typical for teens, the girls obsess ad nauseam over their romantic relationships. Yet this narrow focus lends authenticity to the narrative, and readers become drawn into the characters' lives as they stumble toward adulthood, fall in and out of love, enlarge their circle of friends, and rethink their values.

The Bermudez Triangle  Feb 3, 2008
I have read a few of Maureen Johnson's books in the past, but none of them have really stood out for me. None of them have been really fantastic... they've landed somewhere between okay and good. But The Bermudez Triangle was better than all of her other books. The Bermudez Triangle was fantastic. It's realistic, and relateable.

There was a time in my life when I was curious about what love really is. I knew that I loved my best friend... but I was so confused about what type of love it was. That's basically what this book is about... love, and the many different forms it comes in. This book kept me riveted from the very beginning, and it is definitely one that will put Maureen Johnson on my list of favorite authors.
A great book about friendship  Jan 26, 2008
The Bermudez Triangle was the last of Maureen Johnson's five books that I read. I wish it had been the first, especially after it was challenged in Oklahoma.

The story follows three best friends, Nina, Avery and Mel. Nina gets accepted into a university program and leaves for the entire summer. Nina obviously misses Avery and Mel, but she meets a boy named Steve who cares about the environment as much as she does, and she falls for him.

While she is away, Avery and Mel work at a restaurant and spend most of their time together. Soon Avery and Mel discover there may be more-than-friends feelings between them and the development of their relationship happens gradually, like real life.

When Nina returns, Avery and Mel are distant. Nina knows something in their friendships has shifted, or changed, but she is not sure what. She is shocked when she finds out (and not in the most appropriate way) that Avery and Mel are dating, and feels like she has to take sides when Avery and Mel break up.

The whole book is a refreshing look at love that just kind of happens, and how friendships change when two people you're best friends with begin dating. Nothing is contrived, but instead the issues are examined with care, and a feeling of innocence and confusion from the characters.

Readers will relate to the ups and downs of falling in and out of love and discovering who you are in the process. A must read.
A Touching Story About An Enduring Friendship And The Meaning of Love  Jul 2, 2007
Consummate YA author Maureen Johnson is back, with a page-turning story of friendship amongst three high school students. When Nina Burmudez goes off to a college prep program for the summer, her best friends Mel and Avery discover they're least, they're into each other. For Mel, this is a realization that's been brewing, while Avery is less sure. Flush with the feeling of young love, they don't tell Mel until she accidentally discovers their passion when she gets back home. Soon rumors are flying around school and their once super-tight friendship triangle is being torn apart quickly. Meanwhile, Nina's ecofriendly boyfriend, Steve, who she met over the summer, is becoming increasingly distant. The group has to struggle to figure out what their friendship means and what they can forgive of each other.

Johnson knows what she's doing when it comes to storytelling, and this is a summer pageturner (with a waterproof cover, even!) that also addresses social issues in ways that speak directly to teenagers. Mel's and Avery's differing reactions to their burgeoning love/lust for one another, grappling with both the intensity of their feelings and the realization that they are different from the norm, plus dealing with homophobia from classmates and family, are honest and forthright. They grapple with being new to falling so passionately in love and trying to keep their love a secret. Johnson shows that even when one has a strong sense of self, being the odd woman out is never easy. Johnson also explores how Mel's new status as a girl who likes girls affects Nina, who struggles to be understanding even as she becomes jealous of Mel and Avery's closeness. There's plenty of drama and conflict to keep you turning the pages, especially as Nina and Steve, not to mention Mel and Avery, start to have trouble in their relationships. Johnson's knack for detail and emotional honesty make this book one to treasure. It's sweet without being sappy and doesn't sugarcoat the real pain of adolescence, whether you're straight, gay, or not quite sure.
A best friends teen novel with a twist  Jan 25, 2007
Nina, Avery and Mel have been best friends all of their lives. And now, for the first time, as Nina heads off to precollege camp in the summer after their junior year, they are going to be apart. But how much could happen in ten weeks? As it turns out, plenty. Nina falls in love with Steve, the eco-warrior down the hall. And while she is away, Mel has her first kiss, too - with Avery.

This book is not as good as the other Maureen Johnson books. I consider Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes to be possibly the best teen novel ever, so I was kind of dissapointed in this book. The premise seemed a little Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants to me, but unlike those girls, we never really see how the girls mesh as friends. Even though they talk a lot about how close they are, and how much they care about each other, it's hard to see. The bond between them feels more - well, fictional - than actual. It's not a bad book. Mel's struggle to come to grips with her homosexuality, as well as Avery's to understand whether she's homosexual, bi, or just in love with her best friend are compelling. But Nina's relationship with Steve is predictable. And the book drags, and ends on a vague, undefined note that left me feeling vaguely unfulfilled.
Compelling Story with some dragging  Mar 30, 2006
"The Bermudez Triangle" is another great book by Maureen Johnson that will intrigue you and teach you. A group of girls, Nina, Mel, and Avery, form a strain in their friendship with the two latter girls form a sexual and romantic relationship while the first is away for the summer.

Returning home to find a different twist to the friendships, Nina becomes swamped in school work, working to get into the same college as a boy she met over the summer. When Avery becomes confused over her sexuality and relationship with Mel, the group of girls begin to find more seams.

A story about love and friendship, Johnson creates three unique characters that come together when searching for the similar things for themselves. While Johnson clearly has a knack for writing and creativity, the novel, however, is a bit on the long side and at times can feel too immature as Johnson details the girls' physical appearances rather than leaving their looks to the reader's imagination. I found myself skipping over much of the scenarios with Nina and her boyfriend along with the slow ending, but otherwise it's a compelling read.
