    The Perfect Game tells the story of college juniors, Cassie Andrews & Jack Carter. When Cassie meets rising baseball hopeful Jack, she is determined to steer clear of him and his typical cocky attitude. But Jack has other things on his mind... like getting Cassie to give him the time of day.

    Story

    The premise was good, but boy, was it done badly! The story had the premises of a good story, but it was badly executed, and never delivered. I kept waiting for the book to take the next step forward, I was actually surprised when it just ended. I still don't know what the title refers to, other than a potential connection to the fact that the mail character is a baseball player? The story was simplistic, the situations contrived, and I found the main characters not to be believable. The secondary characters were actually more believable, perhaps because they didn't have to do too much. The switching of point of views was jarring, and again uneven. The book failed to make whatever point it was aiming at, which I'm not sure what it was. I'm not going to get into the story, not worth it.
    The narration actually made the book even worse. Aside from the narrator's voice, which had a very flat tone, the timing and inflexion were uneven, at times able to bring in some emotion, at other totally flat. The punctuation was not always followed. The worse part is that the narrator was completely incapable of making male voices, I often had trouble distinguishing who was supposed to be talking. Save the credit, skip this.
