Description

New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins makes her Simon & Schuster Audio debut with the young adult novel, Perfect.

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 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. Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back in order to score his perfect home run - on the field and off. And Andre realizes that to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he'll be living a life his ancestors would never understand.

A riveting and startling companion to the best-selling Impulse, Ellen Hopkins's Perfect exposes the harsh truths about what it takes to grow up - and grow into our own selves. Because everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go?

    "Just perfect !"

    I read YA not because I am a children's writer but because I enjoy a good read - and Perfect by Ellen Hopkins was just that. I listened to it over a period of tow days, unable to drag myself away for long from the outcome of our four high school seniors. The four young narrators do true justice to the pitch and rhythm of Ellen's poetic prose
    and the depths, questioning and strength of the four POV. I just loved Ellen's literary device of weaving one story into the next with a word or a phrase, that caused one to linger just a little longer over each individual story.

    As the title suggest, these four teens are struggling with the external (parental and societal), and at times internal, imposition of pressure to be perfect - the perfect independent twin, the skinniest model, the buffest athlete, the smartest.... We may have known these crippling and unrealistic goals in our own past, I know I have.
    As a high schooler guidance counselor, I see teens every year facing these sorts of scenarios, which is why I am so grateful for such an author, who can get under the skin and into the mind and heart of these wonderful, struggling characters. I actually found myself having strong flashbacks to my own teen years and wishing I could have read of a Connor or a Cara or a Kendra, knowing someone understood.

    Another powerful book by Ellen Hopkins, leaving one pensive and somewhat vulnerable. I recommend this to teens and adults alike.
