Insulting a guy in a wheelchair--is that any way to start a romance?
Life was complicated enough for Sivia before Keeley came into her life.
Her parents' divorce did not wipe out their traditional family values. Dad is still way too self-centered, Mom is still resentful, Russ is still shoving food into his mouth and Sivia doesn't need any more drama. But when the new student, obnoxious and legless Keeley, becomes her project partner, her life becomes even more complicated. Family friction, peer pressure and her overly controlling father are threats to her budding relationship--but prejudices she never knew she had and doesn't want to acknowledge are the biggest hurdle of all.
I was intrigued with this book from the synopsis.I'm a huge fan of "flawed" heroes.The not so perfect male characters that have more depth, then most.And by far Keeley is the most intriguing character I have ever read. Most characters I've read that were out of the norm where either deaf or blind,but having a character without legs is a first for me.
Keeley, is such a great character that you can instantly far in love with.He is both sweet and Charismatic .He has no trouble making friends with Sivia and her normal crew. He is confident and has a great-level of self-esteem.
Sivia is the average girl.She has crushes,she has great friends, and like most adolescences she is trying to find the balance between what she wants to do, and if how those decisions will effect everyone else.She is constantly trying to please her parents and her peers.
Together they can make a pretty good team.But it's up to them to decide if they want to be friends or something more.
Hey Nobody's Perfect is a story about overcoming adversity and going after what you want.This was a great story that packed a lot of powerful messages.Blended with a great supporting cast and a good plot, make this a must read for any young adult!
Would I recommend it: Yes!
