Perfect You by Elizabeth Scott

The gist (from Elizabeth herself):

Kate Brown's life has gone downhill fast. Her father has quit his job to sell vitamins at the mall, and Kate is forced to work with him. Her best friend has become popular, and acts like Kate's invisible.
And then there's Will. Gorgeous, unattainable Will, who Kate pretends she can't stand even though she can't stop thinking about him. And when Will starts acting interested, Kate hates herself for wanting him even though she knows she's just his latest conquest.
Kate figures the only way things will ever stop hurting is if she keeps to herself and stops caring about anyone or anything. What she doesn't realize is that while life may not always be perfect, good things can happen--but only if she lets them.

My Review:
Okay, I've been waiting to get this book for eons (or you know, maybe a few months), so when my library finally got it in, I rushed to get it. Scott gives us a unique plot (doesn't she always) on a classic boy-meets-girl novel. Kate gets put through a lot of unique and tough situations, so it's easy to see where she gets her tough shell. I think Scott does an excellent job of showing Kate's wanting to be recognized in a world where it seems like everyone's thinking of themselves. Kate seems really relatable and you can definitely sense her emotions. Overall the novel is wonderfully written. You know the part in books or movies where things start going wrong for the character and things just aren't looking up? I felt Kate's emotions during the tougher times. I was upset just as she was. That's good writing. If you haven't read a Scott novel yet:
 a) what in the world are you waiting for
 b) start with this one, it won't disappoint.

If you haven't already guessed it, I give this book:
