Book Review: Finding Perfect by Kendra C. Highley


Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Anniek

Paige is a perfect straight A student. Everyone calls her Perfect Paige. If you need help organizing a party, doing volunteer work, keeping up with all of the homework and being beautiful and smart, Paige is your girl. Ever since she was a young child her parents have set out a path for her to follow. For a long time she shared their opinion and followed the directions that were chosen for her, but when she is forced to look inside herself she has to find out what truly makes her happy.

Ben is even smarter than Paige is. Being the third of their class has gotten him into the college of his choice. When he spots Paige crying in the hallway he offers his help. Paige is failing in math class. This is the class where Ben is at his best. He offers Paige to be her tutor and in return he asks Paige to give him a makeover. Ben doesn't want to be the geek anymore. He wants to be seen, especially by Zoey who is the most popular girl in school and also Paige's best friend...
 
Finding Perfect is such a sweet story. It was heartwarming to read about how Ben and Paige become real friends very fast. They are learning that it does not matter how people look on the outside or how much money they have. That Ben has a nice little six-pack under his shirt did help though. Ben's life has been rough. Because he's living alone with his mother and they can only barely come up with each month's rent he thinks he isn't good enough for Paige. I loved the fact that Paige didn't care whatsoever. She is a good person all the way. Even when she falls in love with Ben she never puts herself first. Ben wanted to be noticed by Zoey and Paige is determined to keep her end of the bargain.

Zoey knows Paige has fallen in love with Ben from the very first time she sees them together and starts a quest on her own to get the two love birds to own up to their feelings. Reading this story brought me back to my teenage years and how just liking someone could be so much drama. I laughed out loud about the conversations and thinking. I have been out of the dating scene for a very long time, but I really do hope that it's easier for grown ups. If you are looking for an easy read with lots of love, fun and sweetness then look no further, this is the book to read!
