Perfect by Ellen Hopkins
By Carrie - TABFebruary 13, 2012
In Ellen Hopkins’s new book, Perfect, the lives of four teenagers, Cara, Sean, Kendra and Andre, are all shaped by their choices, as well as, those of others. Through eating disorders, steroid abuse, and the complications of relationships, all four change and grow for better or for worse. Their futures and goals also fluctuate and produce disastrous effects. True to form, Hopkins produces four unique voices that all experience what teenagers feel everyday.
I enjoyed parts of this book while others left me angry. The choices that these characters make emphasize the poor decision making skills found within my age group. Overall, the book was well written and is a definite must read if you are a fan of Ellen Hopkins.
