Caleb + Kate
Cindy Martinusen- Coloma
Caleb + Kate is the second book by Cindy Martinusen-Coloma that I have read. The other book was also about high school students. I would classify Caleb + Kate as Christian teen fiction and teen chick lit. It’s a book two teenagers from two different worlds. Both come from rich families however no one knows that the other one is rich. Kate is “poor little rich girl” while Caleb who is from Hawaii gets labeled a bad boy; because of the way he’s dress, his tattoos, and the fact that he drives a motorcycle.
To me it is a modern Romeo and Juliet Story, but with two Christian teenagers. It was easy to see which characters from Romeo and Juliet reflective in Caleb + Kate. Caleb was Romeo, Kate was Juliet, and some guy named Ted was Paris. The novel even has a family feud between Caleb’s grandpa and Kate’s family. Will Caleb and Kate end up together or will their families tear them apart? You’re going to have to read the book in order to find out what happens. All in all it was a good book; I’m not use to writing a book review on teen books.
