Coming Soon: Perfect by Ellen Hopkins

May 11, 2011 § 4 Comments

Let me first tell you what this is all about. Coming Soon is a segment in which I will post about the upcoming books from my favorite authors and most probably books that I would love to add into my personal collections. So, this segment is pretty much like a hybrid of Waiting On Wednesdays and On My Wishlist memes. This is not a meme though as this is just a personal segment at my blog, but you’re always welcome to drop comments. Thanks! 
Perfect by Ellen Hopkins (Hardback)
Series: Impulse Book #2
To be Published On: September 13, 2011
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry  

The Story (author’s website): Everyone has something, someone, somewhere else that they’d rather be. For four high-school seniors, their goals of perfection are just as different as the paths they take to get there. Cara’s parents’ unrealistic expectations have already sent her twin brother Conner spiraling toward suicide. For her, perfect means rejecting their ideals to take a chance on a new kind of love. Kendra covets the perfect face and body—no matter what surgeries and drugs she needs to get there. To score his perfect home run—on the field and off—Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back. And Andre realizes to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never understand.

Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?A riveting and startling companion to the bestselling Impulse, Ellen Hopkins’s Perfect exposes the harsh truths about what it takes to grow up and grow into our own skins, our own selves.


I never read any of Hopkins’ books, but I know that she wrote her story in a very poetic way in which I think would be very addictive and unputdownable. I find out that Hopkins tackles controversial issue in each of her novels and sometimes her story may be very disturbing based on reviews). I would love to try this author’s works. I read the synopsis of one of her novel “Identical” and it sounds interesting. Maybe it would be my first read from the author.

    I've heard about Perfect but seriously has no idea that it's the companion novel to Impulse, so now I'm OVERLY excited about it! If you haven't read Impulse, I strongly suggest you to do so as it was one of the best verse book that I've ever read!p.s. It has been awhile since we last talk. Hope that everything is going perfect good for ya!
