Cover Reveal - Perfect by Ellen Hopkins


Perfect by Ellen Hopkins
September 13th 2011 by Margaret K. McElderry

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.


Amazing! I think this book will strike home for a lot of teens trying to live up to their families ideals and exceptions. I have no doubts that this will be a great addition to Ellen's collection. Next to Crank, this is my favorite cover. The bleeding watercolors are fantastic!

  1. Eek! That cover is beyond GORGEOUS! I love the colors! I'm ashamed to say that I've never actually read Ellen Hopkins. She's been on my TBR list forever, but I've never gotten around to reading her work. I need to fix that in the near future...lol
