Perfect by Ellen Hopkins

The book Perfect, by Ellen Hopkins, is by far one of the best books I've read in a while. It follows the story of four high school seniors, as they struggle to be their own form of perfect. Cara, is a girl whose parents are overbearing, and expect far too much of her and her brother, who already tried to commit suicide. Sean, is her boyfriend, who gets addicted to steroids trying to be the best baseball player he can be, so that he can go to Stanford and stay with Cara. Kendra has been in multiple beauty pageants, and would do anything to further her modeling career. And her little sister is dating Andre, who wants nothing more than to be a dancer, much to his parents dismay. These four separate story lines intertwine in the most intricate of patterns. "Perfect" was an absolutely incredible book, written in intriguing poems that make the book even more interesting. It is technically the sequel to the book Impulse, but can easily be read on its own. I would recommend this book to everyone, it is absolutely unbelievable.
