Perfect You

Title: Perfect You
Author: Elizabeth Scott
Pages: 282

Basic Rating:3/5

Plot: 3/5 and sometimes a 2/5

Characters: 3/5

Cover: 3/5

My Recommendation: For readers who like to read Teenage dramas and coming of age books.

My Thoughts: I liked it! It was really easy to get into and the whole book was easy to read and get. Though during more of the middle of the book the fact of the main character, Kate's, problems sort of took control of the book and made me not as into reading it as before and also the dynamic and relationship between her and Will made me not as interested in the story line, but it did pick up again and then it was as addictive as ever. I liked it because when it came down to it, it wasn't only about a boy, it was about the characters changing and their problems and i really liked that. It was sad too, but not in the sort of way you would have thought it to be. I can understand what Kate is going through with her ending friendship. And it pretty much summed up really a lot of what you feel. Elizabeth Scott has great writing skills and i so want to read her other books. The characters were very good and they felt so real. I also loved the ending, it was the perfect ending even though i personally would have changed it a little. I am very happy with the book!

Plot: Kate's life is quickly going down the gutter. First her father is ruining her life, he quite his good job to sell stupid perfect you vitamins and is forcing her to work embarrassingly beside him. Her best friend quickly became her x-best friend in one summer, and she had no idea why that is. Anna became popular and has thrown Kate away with the trash. And Will, the most attainable annoying guy in school starts to show interest in her and Kate hates herself for thinking she might like him and he might like her. Because the reason he is so attainable makes him unattainable, and she's sure that she would only be his fling until he finds someone else. Its hard hurting, but nothing seems to get any better. So she finds that the only way to maybe get any better is to just forget about everyone else. But that's not so easy after all, because the only real way for things to even get better is to realize that things are never perfect, but you just have to live your life and get through it till things get better and good things happen.

Thanks BOStan~
