Goodbye, Perfect | Sara Barnard
11 posts | 10 read | 8 to read
Goodbye, Perfect is a beautiful and emotional contemporary YA novel, with a powerful friendship at its heart, by bestselling author Sara Barnard. When I was wild, you were steady . . . Now you are wild - what am I? Eden McKinley knows she cant count on much in this world, but she can depend on Bonnie, her solid, steady, straight-A best friend. So its a bit of a surprise when Bonnie runs away with a guy Eden knows nothing about five days before the start of their GCSEs. And it's the last person she would have expected. Sworn to secrecy and bound by loyalty, only Eden knows Bonnies location, and thats the way it has to stay. Theres no way shes betraying her best friend. Not even when shes 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.

Eden‘s best friend, Bonnie, runs away with their music teacher. The police and Bonnie‘s mother are all over Eden because they are convinced she knows where Bonnie is. And she does.

Pretty good read. I wanted to slap Bonnie all during the second half because she didn‘t see the mess she had created for Eden and her family 🤦🏻‍♀️😠

I liked this quick read, I didn't love it. I was very frustrated with some of the main character's actions but I had to keep reminding myself she was 16 and characters are supposed to be flawed. I did like the internal struggles and the emotional journey she went through in the book.
Book 14 for 2019

I liked this book a lot. I didn‘t want to put it down. I really wanted to see what happened in the end. But also Eden made some POOR CHOICES. Girl come on.

C - 9 complex characters and I was totally invested
A - 8 interesting and engaging; loved the adoption aspect and family dynamics
W - 9 I Love her writing as usual
P - 9 intersting and has a good pacing, I love to see a healthy already established relationship at the background of the story
I - 10 I didn‘t want to stop reading
L - 9 all fine
E - 10 I continued reading until 4:30 am :D

Total 64/70; Ø 9,14 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Taking part in #read365 and trying to read at least a little every day; this is the first one I‘ve started in 2018 and as expected from Sara Barnard is really superb so far!

"I can't imagine what the new normal is going to look liķe, just that there's no way to go back to how we were. But here's the thing I realise: I know what it means to lose someone you thought was forever. I've done this before. The people that you let into your life are a choice and sometimes that choice changes"

A truly wonderful quote which is so relevant to my life. I needed to read this. Life just changes sometimes and we take on a new path.
