What would you give up to be perfect? Four teens find out in the New York Times bestselling companion to Impulse.

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.

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.

All characters in this novel view perfect as a vital goal. Not because of expectations but for an attempt of feeling loved.

Oh my goodness, I am overwhelmed

I will admit that the book was a little slow at some points, but it was amazing to see how the details that first seemed insignificant tied together as the story progressed. Having read Impulse first, I got five perspectives rather than four, which only succeeded in somehow making the book even more emotional and thought-provoking than it already was. I would without a doubt recommend this and every other Ellen Hopkins book to anyone wanting to get an unforgettable glimpse into an often forgotten world.
