Mawnin' Loverlies! I decided to skip a few books ahead from the last one I read of Ellen Hopkins called Impulse, and picked up Perfect. What's funny is it actually was talking about the friends and sister of the character Connor from Impulse. I guess it was Perfect that I grabbed Perfect to read. It is another deep book, I'm just assuming now that all her books are deep and very sad. Just like her last book I read, it was very easy to read because of how it is written. If you are able to handle books about life being tough, then I suggest reading Ellen Hopkins. A lot of stuff it seems she writes about is teenagers struggling with mental disorders, alcoholism, anorexia, rape, etc. In my opinion, they are the type of books I don't want to own, but at least have to read once in my lifetime. Have A Blessed Day!

 Synopsis 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 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?
