Summary: (from goodreads) Everyone has something, someone, somewhere else that they’d rather be. For four high-school seniors, their goals of perfection are just as different as the paths they take to get there.

Cara’s parents’ unrealistic expectations have already sent her twin brother Conner spiraling toward suicide. For her, perfect means rejecting their ideals to take a chance on a new kind of love. Kendra covets the perfect face and body—no matter what surgeries and drugs she needs to get there. To score his perfect home run—on the field and off—Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back. And Andre realizes that to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never have understood.

Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?

A riveting and startling companion to the bestselling Impulse, Ellen Hopkins's Perfect exposes the harsh truths about what it takes to grow up and grow into our own skins, our own selves.

Although the book sounds promising and very interesting to say the least, i found the book to be a little complicated. Its unique because its written in verses and it sometimes rhymes, but i just don't have the patience for this type of book right now. In a different situation, i would have read the entire book, not to say i wont read it in the future. But as of right now, its a little to confusing to my liking. Please do not get discouraged by my review and not read the book. This is an amazing author, who has written plenty of incredible books. And as it may not be something i am interested in at the moment, you may find it to be he best read ever!

  1. Oof, yeah I'll be skipping this one. I can't read books in verses of rhymes. It's just too confusing.
