    "Great story, bad ending--not worth reading."
    What disappointed you about Almost Perfect?

    In YA books, it 's typicall that the characters come of age or grow both gaining and losing something. In Almost Perfect, the 2 main characters loss everything without any of them gaining experience. Logan's wrong decisions lead both of them to a disastrous ending where Sage is about give up all for what she has been fighting all her life (it's not clear whether she did) and Logan gets no learning and thus doesn't grow as a person. The ending was soooo bad it runied the whole novel. Okay, this is not a Disney Princesess story, but please don't obliterate the main characters.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brian Katcher again?

    Most likely not. If his other novels are like this one, where a very good plot is ruined by a crappy ending, I 'm not interested.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is a spoiler. Don't read beyond if you prefer to learn by yourself.

    The love scene at the university campus. Wondefull scene!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The plot is actually good and is well knitted, but the ending is sooo bad that I ended up angry. Not worth reading.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy this book unless you enjoy sad endings where all the characters' hopes end crushed beyond repair.

    "Takes teen angst to a new level"
    What did you love best about Almost Perfect?

    The character of Sage was so lovable I dreaded the inevitable moment of revelation. For the first time I understood how transgendered people might feel, and I learned something from living through Logan's doubt and rollercoaster emotions about my own prejudices.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sage was my favorite even though we experienced everything through Logan's eyes. Vulnerable yet strong and always lovable. could she be realistic? I don't know.


    Which character – as performed by Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    Logan was the best performance. I think every girl wants a boyfriend like Logan.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think it was when he was driving her to the hospital and realized he was overcome with emotion.
