Her parent's divorce did not wipe out their traditional family values.

Hey Nobody’s Perfect is about a high school student named Sivia dealing with the normal complicated life of a teenager. Her parents are divorced and don’t really see eye to eye. Her dad is controlling to the point where she feels overwhelmed with his demanding nature. Her perspective of life changes when she meets Keeley. He is dorky, cute, funny, and different. Keeley was born without legs. Sivia was partnered up with Keeley for a class project. This allowed them to spend time together. The more they hung out, Sivia had a hard time with her feelings about Keeley. All her life, she has been one to care about what others think about her. She has allowed her dad to rule her life because she didn’t want to disappoint him. Just like any other high school student, Sivia is worried about what her peers may say when they see here with Keeley. Through their friendship, Keeley teaches Sivia that no one’s opinions matter but your own. Living life to its fullest extent is our greatest gift and should not be taken advantage of no matter what your circumstances are. Keeley gave Sivia the courage to do what she always wanted, and that is to live. I truly enjoyed reading this story. It was deep, meaningful, and overall a beautiful story. I wish the story did not end so abruptly. I would’ve loved to see more of Keeley and Sivia. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, but beautifully written YA story
Hey, Nobody's Perfect is a skillfully written teen romance which embraces the hallmark coming-of-age issues that beset most youth. Sivia not only learns the importance of being true to herself when communicating with her dad, but gains courage to show her love for Keeley in the face of perceived peer judgment from the kids at school. This book is filled with honesty, tenderness, humor, and serious moments that will appeal to teens and adults alike.
