This story was great. Its about a girl named Kate. Kate has a brother named Todd that stays on the couch after four years of college to freeload off his parents who are having problems of their own. Kate's dad went to work and found his desk and all his belongings broken and wrecked. Just one thing lay on his deck completely whole and unbroken, a bottle of Perfect You vitamins. so, seeing this as some kind of 'sign' he quit his job and decided to buy a whole shipment or something of the dumb vitamins and sell vitamins at the mall. More advertising happens then actual sales but its his DREAM. When he actually has his kids doing most of the work while he goes off on his many whims. He spends what little money the family has and in his free time plays video games. (My dad could never keep a job and always wanted to play Xbox more than anything...my mom always picked the crazy careers like Pro Wrestling...and Alligator handling...Seriously, no lie. Life is hard and humiliating!)

Kate's best friend, Anna, ditched her to become popular after coming back from her Aunt's fat camp or something over the summer totally transformed into the model type to get her dream guy and being totally fake. She wants to be popular with her fake friends and have Kate to be there for her for everything that's real in her life that she can't talk to with the cool kids because she's afraid that they will use it against her, make fun of her, and see her as the fat girl she use to be. I just really hated her! She was so pathetic and couldn't see that she was ruining her life! I was surprised it took Kate so long to see that Anna was using her and didn't feel sorry for anything that Anna did to her. Aggravating!

Kate's life is falling down all around her, especially when Kate's grandmother comes to 'help' with the family's situation. I liked her grandmother despite all the vain things she had to say. She knew what she was talking about even though everyone was too pigheaded to listen to her. I felt sorry for her because everyone was at her throat or making her the butt of the joke.

Will, he was the nice. Really nice! I feel for him at his first appearance in the story. He was funny and real. Kate frustrated me with her blindness of his true character. You could see from the beginning that he liked her but I understand why she was so hesitant. I've been there and it didn't turn out quite as happily.

I love that in this book all the drama is crazy but realistic

The title shows the true meaning of the book. The girl doesn't consider herself perfect in her eyes; but her crush sees something different. He sees a girl who's worth more than she credits herself for.
