Perfect You

Title: Perfect You
Author: Elizabeth Scott
Rating: 4.5/5
Summary: Kate Brown's life has gone downhill fast. Her father has quit his job to sell vitamins at the mall, and Kate is forced to work with him. Her best friend has become popular, and now she acts like Kate's invisible. 

And then there's Will. Gorgeous, unattainable Will, whom Kate acts like she can't stand even though she can't stop thinking about him. When Will starts acting interested, Kate hates herself for wanting him when she's sure she's just his latest conquest. 

Kate figures that the only way things will ever stop hurting so much is if she keeps to herself and stops caring about anyone or anything. What she doesn't realize is that while life may not always be perfect, good things can happen -- but only if she lets them...

My Thoughts:Perfect You was another perfect YA read for me. The story focused on the different relationships in Kate's life : with her parents who are in the middle of a huge crises, with her best friend Anna who after a total makeover just literally dumped her for the popular crowd, and with Will, a "nice young man" with the reputation of a Casanova. 
Those relationships are complexe and thanks to Elizebeth Scott's talent, it only takes a few pages to get into Anna's life (into her head and her heart) and feel everything she feels. 
Sometimes I could totally identify myself with her : her insecurites, her desires, her hopes  of my own teenage years. She was truly a fantastic lovable heroine who could maybe teach you a lesson or two.
