Publisher's Summary

In Beacon Heights, Washington, five high school seniors know that you don't have to be good to be perfect.

Musical genius Mackenzie is desperate to get into Juilliard, even if it means playing a duet with her best friend's boyfriend. Beautiful Ava isn't above using her assets to get an A. Athletic Caitlin is one goal away from a soccer scholarship - if she can call a time-out on her relationship drama. Popular Julie has it all - literally, thanks to her hoarder mom - and will do anything to keep her family's secret. And former It Girl Parker is experimenting with her wild side.

The five girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover they all hate the same person: rich, entitled Nolan, who's done terrible things to each of them. They come up with the perfect murder - a hypothetical murder, of course. It's all wishful thinking - until they wake up one morning to find that their wish came true. Nolan was killed - in exactly the way they planned. The thing is, they didn't do it. So who did?

Suddenly the girls are the prime suspects in the murder. And they need to find the real killer before their perfect lives are ended - for good.

    "Very Good"

    I've always loved Sara Shepard, so if you do too I think you'd really love this book. Same feel to her others. I liked who narrated, her voice went well with the story and the mystery!

    "Fun"

    This is a fun, quick read. It's somewhat similar to pretty little liars, but that doesn't take away from the book. I definitely want to know what happens next. I've worked up a few theories in my head, so I can't want to c if they're right. I love sara shepards books and I wish Cassandra Morris would narrate all of them in the future too.

    "Pretty little liars take 2?"

    I listened because it was free with KindleUnlimted.
    would I recommend it? uhh no not unless you want a PLL take 2
    The Narrator was ok but a little bit "squeaky" sounding, to high pitched for my taste. Ilistened for about 2 hrs and had to jump to the end I couldnt take it anymore and was having serious PLL Flash backs.
    If you've watched the TV Show you know that -A is never who you think it is and on and on it goes,huge mystery of who and why? yea thats theending here also, I didnt see anything for a second book but who knows.

    "Not the best narrator..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The narrator was annoying. It was difficult to listen to her for long periods of time.


    Would you recommend The Perfectionists to your friends? Why or why not?

    Fans of PLL will like this. The first few chapters were hard to get into. The characters weren't always easy to tell apart and there were several forgettable minor characters.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration detracted from the story at times.

    "Part One"
    What made the experience of listening to The Perfectionists the most enjoyable?

    While I enjoyed the story I DID NOT enjoy that the story was ended with everything up in the air requiring me to wait till whenever book 2 is written. I don't care for books that don't wrap the story at the end so I would have waited to read this until the next book had been written. Books like The Hunger Game series, The Twilight series even the Percy Jackson series conclude most of the story at the end of each book. They leave a tease that more is to come but this book didn't conclude anything, leaving the reader to wait till when? I probably will not read or listen to this author again because of this fact.


    What could Sara Shepard have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Finish the current story in the book. Leave a tease for the reader to follow but finish the current story

    Would you listen to The Perfectionists again? Why?

    Yes, when the sequel comes out


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You don't have to be good to be perfect


    Any additional comments?

    I actually liked this book a lot. Some of the plot twists and turns reminded me of her other popular series Pretty Little Liars and the Lying Game, however, there was something different about this novel. The main characters were all relatable and had fascinating lives and conflicts. None of the girls frustrated me, and I liked that each chapter followed a different girl. We got to see the girls secrets and fears, which I appreciated.

    I can't wait to read the sequel The Good Girls. Ive heard this will be the final book of the series and Im hoping that is true. I want to get answers and not have to wait years to find out who the real murderer is
