Perfect was a great follow up for Impulse. Ellen Hopkins has this way of writing that just makes you want to read more. The only reason it took me as long as it did to finish is just because of my busy schedule. If I had the time, I’m sure I could have finished it in a day.
Perfect has the same set up as Impulse (being told from different points of view) except it had four characters instead of three. The first character is Cara who is Conner’s twin sister. She is dealing with sexuality issues, her inconsiderate parents, and creepy ex-boyfriend. The next person is Kendra, who dreams of being a model. She has a serious eating disorder but can never accept that she looks good. She is also dealing with her ex-boyfriend, Conner, being sent to Aspen Springs, the mental institution. The next character is Sean, Cara’s ex. Not only is he upset about his and Cara’s break up, but he is using steroids that could potentially ruin his baseball career if anyone found out. The last person is Andre. He meets Kendra’s sister Jenna and falls in love with her. Jenna, however, doesn’t believe in love, and no matter how hard Andre tries he can’t convince her to love him back.
This book really focuses on being happy with yourself. The pressure to be perfect can sometimes be overwhelming, but you need to live life for you. Ellen Hopkins did a great job highlighting some problems that teenagers go through. I loved reading it, but if you want to read it, you should read Impulse first. If you are a fan of Ellen Hopkins’s other books or you like stories dealing with teenage issues, you would like Perfect.
