Kate’s life is pretty miserable. Her best friend has dumped her. Her father quit his job to sell infomercial vitamins in the mall. Her family, as a result, is having some serious money troubles that can only be resolved by her grandmother coming to stay. Of course, Grandma being around just makes everything more tense and more stressful. Kate is also lusting after a boy who has done nothing but torment her since they met in ninth grade. Will also has a bit of a reputation around school for hooking up with every girl he sees. Kate likes Will, but she doesn’t want to, and when he starts to act like he might be interested, she certainly doesn’t want to be just another name on the long, long list of girls that Will has been with…does she?

I loved Elizabeth Scott‘s other two books, bloom and Stealing Heaven, but Perfect You just might be my favorite! It’s a close call as to which is the best, but Perfect You is in no way disappointing, and in many ways awesome. Kate is an awesome main character, but I loved all of the characters, and the complicated relationships they had with each other. Perfect You is a fresh, funny, and honest story that is everything readers will expect from this talented writer, and more! Honestly, I can’t recommend highly enough this fantastic story about family, romance, friendship, love, life, and growing up.

Elizabeth Scott’s debut novel, bloom, is wonderful, so her fans will be expecting something pretty amazing to live up to that! Stealing Heaven will not disappoint. It’s amazing; I absolutely loved it, and I’m sure I won’t be alone when it comes out in May! Order your copy now!

Dani and her mother do not live a traditional life, not by a long shot. They travel around the country, making their living with burglary. They are master thieves. Every job is well-planned and well-executed. Every step is calculated. It’s the only life Dani has ever known. She’s never had a normal life, with friends or school or a boyfriend or anything.

When they get to the beach town of Heaven, it seems like it’ll be just like any other place. They’ll pick the best of the big houses sure to hold lots of silver (their item of choice to steal), scout it out, find an in, grab the loot, and take off. Dani’s mom will use her looks to her advantage somehow, maybe to secure them a place to stay or find some useful information. Dani will make no lasting, important connections with anyone. That’s how it always is.

Except Heaven might be different. Dani might have an actual friend. And then there’s the guy who won’t leave her alone (and who happens to be a cop!). She has to choose–the life she’s always known, or the life she’s always secretly dreamed of?

Elizabeth Scott is amazing at creating wonderful, believable characters. I love that despite Dani’s very unusual and interesting life, she is a very relatable character, who is dealing with some very normal teenage girl problems (and some less normal ones). Stealing Heaven is a well-written, absorbing book that grabbed me from the first page and refused to let go! I highly, highly recommend it.
