    DescriptionWhat 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.

    Review quote
    "At its nucleus, four teenagers are grappling with insecurities that become exacerbated when loved ones turn up the heat. . . . The unrestricted access Hopkins employs is formidable: parents, siblings, love interests, and outliers all thrust frank judgment on the characters. It is how Cara, Sean, Kendra, and Andre react that encourages readers' emotional attachments. Her writing conveys teenage quandaries with all of the intended consequences, as the verse style only serves to shock as the events unfold."
