Read Goodbye, Perfect Online Free - When I was wild, you were steady . . .
Now you are wild - what am I?
Eden McKinley knows she can’t count on much in this world, but she can depend on Bonnie, her solid, steady, straight-A best friend. So it’s a bit of a surprise when Bonnie runs away with the boyfriend Eden knows nothing about five days before the start of their GCSEs. Especially when the police arrive on her doorstep and Eden finds out that the boyfriend is actually their music teacher, Mr Cohn.
Sworn to secrecy and bound by loyalty, only Eden knows Bonnie’s location, and that’s the way it has to stay. There’s no way she’s betraying her best friend. Not even when she’s faced with police questioning, suspicious parents and her own growing doubts.
As the days pass and things begin to unravel, Eden is forced to question everything she thought she knew about the world, her best friend and herself.

“I don’t think you can ever really start over. Because if you’re trying to do that, you’re basically trying to run away from yourself. And you can’t. You’re stuck with you, forever. Wherever you go.”
I can’t not read a book written by Sarah Barnard. She has this honest, realistic way of telling...

I don't read a lot of contemporary YA but this one was pretty good! It got a bit slow in the middle, but overall not too bad

I've been really delayed in writing my review for this seeing as I finished it at the end of last week, but I was hoping that if I left it for long enough and I mulled over 'Goodbye, Perfect' I'd love it as much as I did Sara Barnard's other books. Unfortunately, that's not the case.
I knew nothin...

3.5* Sara Barnard's writing is incredibly easy to read and impossible not to fly through. It's full of emotion, fantastic messages and interesting characters. Although I definitely didn't enjoy this as much as 'A Quiet Kind of Thunder' (which was one of my favourite reads of 2017) 'Goodbye, Perfe...

Several years ago, a 15-year-old girl and her 30-year-old teacher ran away together. I can remember seeing it show up in news stories, but other than to think “that’s gross!”, I didn’t really give it much thought. It wasn’t happening to anyone in my life, nor was it happening anywhere near me, so...

This is a really impressive new book from Sara - it's extremely enjoyable, well-told, shocking without being mawkish and a very thought-provoking look at the pressures on teens today. I adored it and raced through it in a few days. 13+

This book was a very thought provoking read and is one of those books that both while you're reading and afterwards you just can't out of your head. I think it's because I found the whole situation kind of disturbing and it was really hard to read at times. I was actually very surprised by how ha...
