Perfect 
by Ellen Hopkins
Published by: Margaret K. McElderry
on September 13, 2011









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 to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never understand. 

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. (from Goodreads)

Perfect is the upcoming verse novel of one of my favorite authors, Ellen Hopkins. Her novels are raw,emotional, and some of the best I've read. Perfect is the companion novel to my favorite of  all her novels, Impulse. This book is at the top of my "I Can't Wait for It" list. Once I get it, I'll make sure that it doesn't sit on my shelf for long!
