Almost Perfect (YA)
Katcher, Brian. 2009. Almost Perfect. Random House. 360 pages.
Everyone has that one line they swear they'll never cross, the one thing they say they'll never do.
Our hero, Logan Witherspoon, is about to be tested. When we first meet him, he's depressed. Ever since he was dumped (after being cheated on) he's been down. His friends have almost given up hope on him. Until. He meets the tall and strangely beautiful new girl. Her name is Sage. And she wows him. It's not that she's oh-so-beautiful. But there is something about her, that just gets to him. She likes him too. Though she seems a bit shy. But he's willing to take a chance on love again, for her. Willing to cross Sage's strict parents. But is there something about Sage--a secret she's keeping--that will doom this relationship before it even has a chance?
Take my advice. DON'T read the jacket flap. All you need to know about this one is that it's a coming of age story with a bittersweet romance. You don't need to know Sage's secret before Logan does.
