At an early age, Olivia Saunders has been forced into being absolutely NOTHING but perfect. Perfect appearance, perfect behavior, perfect outfit, perfect everything. So there's absolutely no doubt to her that for her freshman year of high school, she's going to be queen of the school newspaper.
That's how she's always been.
But Mr. Masters, the smooth, snobby head of Harper Weekly, has other plans for her.
She's put into a partnership with a boy she despises: Tom Thatcher, a boy a part of Thomas C. Harper High School's popular pack. Although he's a bit different from the others. He does his own thing, on his own time. He's very laid back, and doesn't really care too much about being perfect. This is what infuriates Olivia the most.
But what happens when Tom shows her that there's no need to be perfect? That the best form of beauty is when there are human flaws?
And what happens when Olivia finally tries to get out of her mother's iron clutches?
Will Olivia become the person she wants, instead of what her mother has forced her to be?
Or is she too scared to break the mold?
