Novel in Verse
“Perfect” was a story about four teens POV about their “perfect” life. Cara’s brother has committed suicide, but failed, and Cara has chosen to become a lesbian. Andre wants to dance, Kendra is anorexic, Jenna is dating a black teen, Sean stalks for love – all of these problems because of the “perfect” lives they live in. I adored this book, because you get to know what everyone is thinking, understand the life they choose to accomplish perfection. Also, this book is full of twists that progress the book into an addiction for the readers, which ends to inform the readers that perfection is not the goal of life, but instead the opposite.
