Almost Perfect

Pub date: October 13th, 2009

Logan Whitherspoon recently discovered that his girlfriend of three years cheated on him. Since then- much to his friend's dismay- he has been depressed, pessimistic, and obsessed with his ex, Brenda.

But things starts to look up for Logan when a new student breezes through the halls of his small town. Tall, unconventionally pretty, and a bit awkward, Sage Hendricks somehow appeals to Logan even at a time when he trusts no one. As Logan learns more about Sage, he realizes that she needs a friend as much as he does if not more. She has been homeschooled for several years and her parents have forbidden her to date, but she won't tell Logan why. The mystery of Sage's past and the oddities of her personality intrigue Logan, and one day, he acts on his growing attraction and kisses her. Moments later, however, he wishes he hadn't. Sage finally discloses her big secret: She's actually a boy.

Enraged, frightened, and feeling betrayed, Logan lashes out at Sage and then refuses to speak to her. For weeks he berates himself for being so easily fooled and worries that the kiss means he's no longer straight. Yet after some time passes, he reaches out to Sage in an attempt to understand her, as well as his own reaction to her revelation. But Logan has no idea how rocky the road back to friendship will be, or how many unexpected, exciting, and excruciatingly painful places he and Sage will visit along the way.

summary from www.briankatcher.com

I thought I'd pick something a little different this week. The plot of this book is highly original. (at least I've never stumbled upon something similar) I really appreciate when authors tackle difficult or tricky subjects that may not appeal to everyone but where there is something to be learned. I think it takes a lot of courage to write something very different and I'm really interested to read this one. :)


  1. Wow, this looks like a great book!

  2. Wow.. this is definitely something I'll be looking out for. It does sound really original (the only other book that I can think of that would be remotely like it Luna by Julie Anne Peters).
