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.

Excellent all the way around

The narrators were awesome, not an annoying voice in the bunch, which can really kill the good book experience. The story and it's characters were totally engaging. Bought several more books by this author.

Emotional

this is the first book in a long time to actually make me cry. The very end scene where it tied in Vanessa and Tony, and to hear their final words about Connor, really hit me hard. They were built very well as characters in the book prior to this, "Impulse", and then to tie them into this, with all the other very well built characters, it's emotional. Ellen Hopkins is an amazing auther and I recommend all the other books she has written, as she knows how to A.) Make characters real and B.) how to really give a deep insight to the human mind. I know personally how depression is, and my mind felt very similar to how Vanessa explained in Impulse. All in all, a great author if you can handle a graphic nature and touchy subjects.

Amazing! Moving!

Would you consider the audio edition of Perfect to be better than the print version?

Both are great!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jenna and Kendra- I feel I can relate to them the most!

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It brings the story to life!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Perfect, Whose Perfect?

BEAUTIFUL

One of my favorites
I loved the multiple characters, voices are amazing. Wasn't hard to finish, it all connected the different stories, with an amazing truth at the end

Ehh... it wasn't the best

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

I'd get rid of the music before the book starts and get someone with more personality to read it.

Any additional comments?

Ellen hopkins is still my favorite but not too crazy about other asset

Not Great

I am familiar with Ellen Hopkins writing style as I have read Crank, Glass and Impulse. So, I thought this book would have been equally enjoyable. I found it difficult on audio specifically because there are multiple characters with all different narrators....this style of writing is like a diary and so it cuts from one person to the next to the next and you have to go through like 5 different stories all at the same time. It was definately challenging to keep up. Also, I felt the story was quite boring; felt like same stuff going on forever.
