Four high school students struggle with their identity and being perfect.

This book covered a multitude of critical life-changing topics.  Each character experiences their own form of distortion regarding perfection and what it means for them.  If you understand from the beginning that these four are chosen for that purpose, it makes it easier to accept.  The whole teenage population is not like these students.  Everybody has some form of something, but these are extreme cases.

My rating reflects my enjoyment level more than the content.  It kept my attention, and Hopkins did a great job of getting me into the minds of these teenagers.  I enjoyed it.



  1. I can't imagine listening to this but I adored it in print!

    1. Bermudaonion ~ I'm assuming it was written in verse, and I prefer to listen than read verse. The voices were terrific.

  2. I really like her YA books. I tried her adult book and hated it.

    1. Staci ~ This falls in line with all her YA books. That's interesting regarding her adult book. Hmmm.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
