How far will you go for perfection? 

For “Perfect Paige” Westfield, today is “D” Day. As in, she just got one on her calculus test. With her dreams of Stanford, her reputation, and her parents’ expectations at stake, Paige needs to find a way to save face before everything she’s worked for goes up in flames.

Ben Franklin (yes, he’s related) is from the wrong side of town, with the wrong clothes and the wrong kind of life. He also knows an opportunity when he sees one, and he’ll be happy to tutor Paige—if she makes him into the kind of guy her best friend, the hottest girl in school, will date.

It’s the perfect arrangement. And Paige is determined not even the inconvenient—and utterly imperfect—attraction simmering between her and Ben will ruin it…

My Review:

I absolutely loved reading Finding Perfect, it’s one of the sweetest romantic stories I’ve read so far this year. It was a total page-turner and just perfect.

In the beginning of the story we meet Paige Westfield, a popular and smart high school student who to everyone else she is known as “Perfect Paige.” Too bad that doesn’t last long when she gets a D on one of her Calculus exams. Now she is afraid of getting her Stanford application rejected and having to face her parents. So when she stumbles upon Ben Franklin after having a meltdown, he tells her that he is willing to help her bring her grade up, only if she helps him get the attention of her best friend Zoey. It should have been easy for her to say yes right of the bat, but Paige takes her time giving him an answer especially after knowing that Zoey liked other guys…etc. When she does accept his offer, she promises him that she is going to do everything in her power to make Zoey like him back. That is really when the story truly begins, and we get to see them interact more. And the more time they spent together, the more do they start to realize that they might just be perfect for each other. 

For Ben Franklin living on the wrong side of town can be difficult, but being third in his class has giving him the opportunity to tutor and that is exactly what he offers Paige in exchange for her to get him to be like a guy that Zoey might be interested in. Soon he starts to see the real Paige and what she has to go through with her parents, and the pressure that she has to be “perfect” in front of everyone else. When he realizes that he just might be falling for her, he starts to plan out how he can get her attention and hoping that she’ll like him back. 

From the cover to the story plot, I thought that the story was enjoyable to read. I found myself unable to put the book down; it was just a page-turner that kept me up all night. Needless to say, the characters do develop as the story progressed. We don’t see a lot of change in Ben, instead we see him showing Paige that it’s okay to not always be perfect or try to be and just enjoy the experiences as they come into her life. Although the book centers around Ben and Paige, we do get to know more about Zoey, and she is sort of the catalyst that brings them together in the end. The ending was sweet and it really fit the story as whole, I highly recommend it. :)
