    The perfect read for a lazy day, Perfect Escape gave me just tha

    The perfect read for a lazy day, Perfect Escape gave me just that. An
    escape to new characters who are in over their head. I love stories
    that really deep. The plot of this book flows from everything they went
    through and what they will face. Once your in the book, the reader is
    immediately thrown into Kendra's shoes. I like that the plot gives the
    reader the information that we want but also keeps up intrigued with
    what is coming up next. Now, the characters are what kept me on my
    toes. Their emotions and the way their life is, brings me to my knees. I
    felt for them, both of them. Kendra the child who is ignored cause she
    is normal. And Grayson, who is constantly needing attention. When both
    of them release their feelings it's amazing. To see both sides of what
    they struggle with, it gives the reader a good insight of who they are.
    Who they longed to be. And you know what? Sometimes I want to do
    exactly what Kendra did. Just get in the car and drive. Anywhere.
    Anytime. To just let go and escape, seems absolutely beautiful to me. In
    life things get so overwhelming you need the escape. Perfect Escape is
    a great story of clearing your mind. Just letting go of all what you
    hidden and deal with privately on your own. We all need those days to
    sit back and reflect. To let yourself escape and take your time in
    making any life changing decision. Perfect Escape is awesome!

    Perfect Escape is a very different "realistic fiction"

    Perfect Escape is a very different "realistic fiction" than the most ones I read out there. Kendra, the main protagonist, is always overshadowed by her older brother; Grayson, because of his OCD. Kendra's parents always have to pay extra attention to Grayson because they're always worried something might cause him to get obsessive too much. Because of this, Kendra thinks that she has to be the "perfect" child in order to make up for Grayson's abnormality. One day, Kendra gets herself into a huge mess at school. Worried that she'll get expelled, and ruin her image for perfectionism, she runs away. Though Kendra didn't run away by herself, she decided to take her brother with her and cure him from his OCD. A different routine and different places might make Grayson anxious, but Kendra decided that she'll let him get used to it, and then eventually won't be bothered by it anymore.

    The beginning of the story was very intriguing. Jennifer Brown has made a great deal of describing an OCD patient, because Grayson felt so real to me. Kendra's feelings might seem selfish to some people, but that's how they are. I completely understand both of them, because I've got siblings, and I know what it feels like to be "jealous" sometimes. Even though this was a realistic fiction, it was a fun read because it was a road trip as well. It was fun being in the adventure with them, to get to see all the places and it actually felt like I experienced it with both of them. It was interesting that Jennifer added additional characters through the trip. That way, I didn't get bored at all.

    Overall, it was a great realistic fiction story. True that it didn't move me that much, but it was interesting and fun to read. I have to say it was sad at parts, especially because of the siblings love. It was engaging to read a novel about siblings, and not a novel about a boy and a girl who fell in love. Perfect Escape felt more... how do I say this....It felt more like I was watching a personal life. A family that has problems and issues, so that was a very different view. Perfect Escape was a great read, and I do recommend it to all readers out there!

    Amazing book. It really looks at the stigma and prejudices against those with a mental disorder.
