Perfect Shot is about London Abrams, a volleyball player who enrolls in a modeling contest to get closer to photography intern Brent.

I first heard about this book through a natural hair website and I became interested just because the protagonist has natural hair like myself. However, upon seeing the Romantic Comedy title on the front my expectations quickly plummeted. Romantic comedies are by far my least favorite genre of anything (excluding 500 Days of Summer, that movie is awesome!), but I

Perfect Shot was written by Debbie Rigaud. The theme of this novel is courage. The courage the main character shows gives her the strength to retry for a dream that she had in her past. Without her courage she would never have experienced all that occurs in the book.
London Abrams is the main character. London used to be a pageant girl. Her parents put her in all of the beauty pageants when she was little. Now, she has given up on modeling. London has found a new love, volleyball. London is th

Summary: London loves volleyball but she takes the opportunity to sign up for a modeling contest in order to spend more time with hottie Brent. While her first goal is to win his heart, the cash prize would be helpful for the volleyball camp she wants to attend.

Why I Read: Simon Pulse Romantic Comedy! How could I *not* read this?

My Thoughts: I really liked London; she had a good head on her shoulders, very determined but able to have fun as well. I liked her instant crush on Brent and her strugg

The main character here was really well developed and I rooted her on the whole way. In this series the covers looked kind of like those on cheesy romance novels people often skip. I do that sometimes too and here I was really taken aback by the great characters that I wasn't expecting and an awesome plot. The guy wasn't a bad character but I didn't like him as much as the great main character that Debbie created. It had good writing and the determination of the character again drew me towards t ...more

Perfect Shot by Debbie Rigaud part of Simon and Schuster's Romantic Comedy series of novels. London Abrams loves volley ball and wants nothing more than to attend a volley ball summer camp. It's unfortunately a bit pricey and her parents have said no. She's decided she'll do what it takes to earn the money herself — even if it means entering a local modeling contest!

Mixed into this equation is a cute boy, Brent St. John, who is an amateur photographer and part of the contest. Part of her inspira

I thought this book was very unique. it revovles around a girl London, she's a volleyball star but one day she enters the fashion world and is in competition to be a model. London wasn't meant to be in the competition and just happened to have gotten in. I liked how the author had made the story seem kind of like the America's next top model. It shows what can happen behind the stage and the challenges people faced in the competition.London had to go against her used to be friend, now her enemy ...more
I all around enjoyed this book, apart from one thing. The main character London talks like she's from the ghetto! Mad, Dawg, Gurl and the g got dropped constantly from words. African Americans don't really talk like that! My next door neighbors are African American and they don't talk like that, they're both college grads and talk in an educated manner. Other than that though, i enjoyed this book quite a bit. I liked seeing how London grew and changed over the course of the book. And the romance ...more

Perfect Shot was a such a cute read. It's fast-paced with a great cast of characters. Pam is a HDQ (Haitian Drama Queen) and she's hilarious! London (the main character) is carefully developed by the author. I liked how she went out of her comfort zone and her reactions were realistic, she was nervous but also determined to succeed.

I had tried reading this book once before and could not get into it. When I started reading it this time, I stuck with it past the first two pages. The actual dialog can be a bit annoying just because of the way the author tried to make it sound like teenagers talking - I think Rigaud tried a little too hard with the dialog at points. Other than that, I really enjoyed the book.
Nice light romance. With teen African american charcacters. Would have loved this as a teen. Main character, London is a serious volleyball player. Great smart, athletic girl. Nice boy and mean boy. Great best friend relationship. Nice family dynamic too.
