I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My overall impression? It's a poorly written version of the Uglies series. The story begins in a similar way, with an ugly visiting the pretties (the avoidable visiting the perfect) only here the avoidable decides the perfect is her soulmate within the first chapter. Whoa! Too fast, too fast! But wait! She's an angel! Destined to unite the avoidables and the perfects! And then her roommate blows up some perfects and we'r

I want to start by saying I really enjoyed this book.

****SPOILERS****

Though I put in four stars I would say it was more around a 3.5 for me.
I like to round up though ;)

Let me start with the things I liked.

I liked that it was different. Though it had a feel of a few YA dystopian books I have read it was also a lot different too. It was well written and the plot really intrigued me as well as pretty much all of the characters. It kept me reading and there were definitely no slow parts.

That being

3.5 stars rating.

Start of the story is quite interesting. It started with the two sides of Avoidables and Perfects. It is something different from most of the YA stories.

Avoidables are people with some physical disabilities like losing one arm or leg. Perfects are people with no deformities. It's about this girl name Hope, part of the avoidables, loves hanging out on the other side with Perfects. While she was enjoying herself in a party, she caught a sight of a handsome perfect name Jason who

BRILLIANT... I loved the book..... Totally recommend it if you like something different........ ;)

The story shows how the Avoidables and Perfects live....

The Avoidables are the people that have deformities.... That aren't like everyone else..... People who had one arm or one leg or other things that set the apart from "regular" people..and the Perfects are "perfect", pretty with no deformities and are pretty.....

In this book it shows how one Avoidable
Hope and her friends fight against the

This reminded me a lot of fanfic for some reason.. Maybe because it's in lots of different part? I don't know.
I really like the idea of the plot and the whole story is amazing and it's well written, but the thing that bothers me is how short and quick the whole thing is. I'd like it to go on a bit longer to let information sink in before it hits me with the next plot twist or piece of information. That's the only reason I brought it down to a 3.
I really love the idea of the book and it has a lot

I enjoyed this story a lot. The world building was excellent. Because the story is split up and raises so many questions I don't know how to feel about any of the characters in the story. Are they good? Bad? It's as frustrating as it is compelling and it kept me reading. I have no idea where this story will go. It's not predictable in the slightest.

I would like to read the next instalment.

As the title suggests - avoid this book. It is not worth your time. I felt like I was reading an outline. There was no real development. But there was plenty of instalove and "oh, but that guy is so cute too."

{My Thoughts} – I always enjoy finding little nuggets for free on amazon. This is one of those nuggets.

“Earth is full of two races, the Avoidables and Perfects.” An avoidable is someone that is flawed in some way or form and a Perfect is someone that is not flawed at all. In this story you learn about the two races and how they became separated. You learn that there is a plan that has been in the works to try and unite the two races and help them to co-exist with one another without all the disc

Avoidables by Rachel Meadhurst is the first part of a multiple part serial staring Hope, a half angel, Purple, her half dragon friend, and Jason, a perfect from the better part of the city.

Hope is an Avoidable. With only one arm, she's discriminated against by the Perfects, those with perfect physical beauty. Her best friend Purple is a half dragon with the same problem, except he's a fighter determined to do something about it. When Hope meets Jason, a Perfect who calls to her heart more than a

This book was alright. It was a quick read but it wasn't very well written. Grammatically and structurally yes it was well written, but it wasn't plot wise. There wasn't a whole lot of character development or actual plot development. Some of the plot developed quickly, actually too quickly, and then some of it just seemed to filter in. There was not sense of time in this book. It reads like it's happening over the course of a few days and then bam a character tells you it has been a few months. ...more

this book was well worth reading and became addictive. it is about a world where ever town and city is split into two parts and where the avoidables and the perfects live. the perfects have it all the avoidables have nothing. the story follows hope and her friend purple who are both avoidables. all avoidables have flaws and are at war with the perfects.
Rachel Medhurst writes very well with lots of twists and turns to the story. i found that as i read, the story painted a picture in my mind which

Let me start by saying I was asked to read this book for an honest review and let me say that I am so glad I was. Read to review has opened my mind to many styles of books and authors.

Very cool story line, eye opening way to look at the way we treat each other. I enjoyed the story very much and will be getting more of this series....I want to see where it goes from here. Easy to read and well written. I just found myself drawn to the characters. I love "Hope" and look forward to seeing her comp

Um, what did I just read? You call this a novel? This was more like an outline of a novel and not very well written to be honest. No character development, no plot that I could keep up with, just pointless jumping from place to place. The whole story was a horrible mess. Short, weird and awkward read.

The idea for this was actually nice but this was just poorly written. Nope. The title says it all, avoid.

This could have turned out to be a great read if it wasn't for the rushed atmosphere and lack of finer details in the story. I feel that at least two books could have been made out of the cram packed information filling the story. Delving deeper into the history of how Perfects and Avoidable came about would have also been a nice edition to learn about. I don't think I would recommend this to anyone, but I wouldn't suggest that a person doesn't read it.

This amount of plot lines started, backed up upon itself, then reused. Then the start of a next sub plot never ever to finish.

No do not read this. Unless you like to be a martyr and to suffer for no cause at all.

I wanted to be drawn into this book but every time I started to the story would shift into something else. The idea of the story is good, it just does not flow well. One chapter would end and another would start in a completely different place. It wasn't awful, it just wasn't written well.

Wow brilliant book 5/5 for me. Had me hooked from the start. The story is a fight for acceptance and equality and well written by the Author. I can't wait for the next book.
