Perfectly You by Robin Daniels is as perfect as the name suggests. I loved the characters, the sweet romance, the clean-ish YA vibe. I loved it all! Ivy is a character I can get behind. I understood her completely because….well she’s me. Andy is as sweet as he is swoon-worthy. And their friends?! I loved them!!! I loved how well the secondary characters were fleshed out. It was a quick read and one I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys YA contemporary romance.
A Fictional Version of Me
Ivy is me. Seriously she is! Anyone who knew me in high school that reads this book will see what I mean. She’s an overachiever, a bit of a social butterfly (that’s not me, but the rest is), has no filter and is always honest. This last aspect is both admirable and annoying. While Ivy has a big heart, she tends to speak before she thinks about how it may sound to the other person. It gets her in a lot of trouble.
Andy is an incredibly sweet boy. Ivy sees him as a loner, but doesn’t understand why he is a loner. Really it is by choice. Andy is picky about his friends and while he isn’t rude to anyone, he also doesn’t do the fake/small talk that occurs in the high school scene. However he does like Ivy. It’s obvious from their first encounter, even if she doesn’t quite pick up on it.
Can’t Buy Me Love
Has anyone else seen the old Patrick Dempsey movie from the late eighties? Well, similar premise and vibe. Ivy is the vice president of the student council. The senior class is hosting a date auction to raise money for their senior party. It’s Ivy’s responsibility to find people for the auction. She basically begs Andy to do it for her. When he expresses concern about brining in money for them and being on the runway, Ivy starts a makeover process. Honestly I wasn’t sure how I felt about this aspect of the novel. While Ivy’s heart is in the right place, she says all the wrong things. Andy is a sweet guy dealing with some insecurities and Ivy doesn’t realize just how hurtful she can sound. It’s painful to read at times as I wanted to reach through the pages and smack her.
Overall, I loved Perfectly You! It’s an honest picture about two people who are attracted to one another and how they move past the friend zone. I loved it. It was an addicting read (I read it in one sitting) and perfectly swoon-worthy. If you enjoy YA contemporary, I highly recommend it.
We readers get to follow the story of Ivy Nixon, one of the popular and very accomplished girls at Franklin High School, somewheres around Orlando, in Florida. Ivy has a habit of telling it straight, even if it hurts people's feelings. But Ivy gets things done. It's why she was elected VP of the student body and why she's chairing the auction committee annual fundraiser.
So the annual fundraiser is very important for the seniors since the money they raise gets funneled into their end-of-year senior party. Ivy is feeling the crunch, not only because she's getting pressure from her pompous ex-boyfriend - who is the student body president - to have the fundraiser squared away but, also, because, nope, she doesn't quite have the fundraiser squared away.
The fundraiser is the Senior Date Auction. Students - well, seniors - get to bid on a date with any of ten boys and ten girls, all studs and hotties. Except, Ivy is one guy short. And her deadline is a half hour away to submit her list to the principal. So, she's scrambling.
Maybe some mild spoilers.
Her last class before the deadline is an art class, and there she goes sitting next to Andrew Walker with whom she's taken a few art classes the past two years. They don't really run in the same circles. He keeps to himself. He hates crowds and parties and idiots in crowds and parties. But he gets along with Ivy okay.
Desperate to snag that last male candidate, Ivy eyeballs Andy. She muses, he isn't bad-looking. He just has that baseball cap on all the dang time. Ivy states her case; Andy puts up a fight; Ivy is relentless; Andy caves with the caveat that his name'll be on the list only temporarily until Ivy can find a replacement. Andy, my man, you don't know what you just got yourself into.
With two weeks to go until the date auction, Ivy is compelled to parade Andy around in a string of teen social events to get him exposure so that he'll snag higher bids. To make him as close to swoon-worthy as possible, she talks him into getting a make-over. But when the other girls start paying close attention to Andy, why is Ivy suddenly getting salty? You know why.
So, what a fun read. I liked Ivy and Andy and how their romance played out. But my favorite storyline is Lilly's and Jake's, both of whom I haven't even mentioned yet. Jake is very much part of the in-crowd, and how he and Andy, who is a hermit, are best friends makes for a decent backstory. But my favorite character, hands down, is Lilly Atkins who's been Ivy's best friend since seventh grade. Lilly is offbeat as can be, marches to the beat of her own drum. I loved reading about her, how she's so comfortable in her own skin, never mind that most everyone - Ivy excluded - thinks her a weirdo, never mind that some of the "It" girls are mean and snarky to her. If this book has a message, it's that "You do you." Be okay with who you are. Just for that alone, Perfectly You is a grand read. But it's also a book packed with good scenes and humor - Lilly and Jake are a hoot! - and with two sweet love stories.
