Perfect by Ellen Hopkins

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.

I have read all of the Ellen Hopkins books. This one was a little slow in the begginning but as the book went on, it got very intereasting.My favorite character is Sean because he is like a crzy psycho stalker and he always keeps you guessing what is going to happen next.

This was a really great book, it was sad though because there are people/kids with problems like these. The ending was a little disappointing because I feel like they left some peoples ending out but overall great book, hope they make a sequel.

This book is totally perfect. It shows you how people may look perfect on the outside but inside their heart and whole body organs are shredding into pieces, like everyone else, they all have a "happy" place they rather be than at home or with boyfriends or friends. If you are looking for a book that will make you learn lessons in life and cry this is it. All I can say is that Perfect by Ellen Hopkins is P-E-R-F-E-C-T

Ellen Hopkins is a phenomenal writer with a storyline that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. Hopkins breaks many social, mental and emotional barriers in "Perfect" and its a must read for teens of all ages.

Ellen Hopkins did it again! What a great way for us to get a glimpse of what really goes on in the lives of teens today. Not to mention an easy read with Ellen's writing style! Looking forward to another book soon.

Bubblezmarie More than 1 year ago
Ellen Hopkins, Hands down my FAVORITE author! Her books are soo real and true yet with a twist of a little fantisy. Reading her books take you too your own world and you will never want to put her books down. I cannot wait for this book because it looks amazing and I wish with all my heart that I didn't have to wait til August to red it! <3

I really like this book, it provides great insight as to the lives of seemingly perfect teens who are actually super messed up and I especially found Kendra interesting, an aspiring model who had developed a eating disorder.
