When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

Once I started reading Perfect Chemistry I got sucked right into the deep emotions coming from Alex and Brittany. I couldn't help but feel tingly inside everytime they kissed. They just felt so real, like i could actuallt meet them in school one day. That being said you can pretty much see that I loved every single character. The alternating chapters blended perectly together. Even though the personalities were so different at times, you can still see how much they care about each other. Elkeles has a way of writing that makes you feel each raw emotion with force. I actually cried near the end when Isa and all of Brittany's other friends defend her. I could relate to being in horrible situations, and being able to rely on friends for support. Overall I think that Perfect Chemistry was filled with powerful emotions, and I would reccomend it to every single one of my friends, girls and boys.

Everyone go out and read this book NOW!!!
