The Pink Thing: Book 2

How did I get the book?  I bought me

Genre: Contemporary

First Impression: Cute

Synopsis: 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…

200 words (or less) review: Elizabeth Scott has this ability to grab your attention from page one and make it almost impossible to stop until you’ve turned the last page. Her characters are so alive you half expect them to climb of the page and say hello.

Kate is stuck at the mall helping her father sell vitamins. She’s convinced he’s lost the plot and unable to understand why her mother is ok with it. Her older brother is back from university annoying her and her best friend has dumped her. She’s miserable.

I found Kate’s character very believable, she is a little self-centered at times but I think that makes her more realistic. Kate’s Grandma is epic, she was my favourite character in the whole story. I also really liked Will who is a nice guy without being predictable and flat.

Perfect You is entertaining, sweet and the writing is excellent. I was captivated from start to finish and thought Kate grew up a lot from the beginning of the story.
