I was a bit apprehensive about reading a book that promised to be ‘Perfectly Creepy’. I’m not a big fan of creepy stories. But I loved the cover and the title intrigued me, so I picked it up and started reading.
And before I knew it, I had finished the book.
A Place Called Perfect is the story of a perfect town with just one problem. Somehow, people at Perfect soon become blind and need special rose-tinted glasses to see. Violet hates the place before she even goes there. She did not want to move, and she hates the fact that her father decided to take a job there without even consulting her.
At Perfect, though, things become stranger and stranger. Her mother becomes the stereotypical Perfect housewife. Violet herself is expected to behave perfectly all the time – even variations in games during playtime are heavily frowned upon. Worse, her father vanishes and she begins to hear voices.
Full of suspense and adventure, A Place Called Perfect tells the tale of how Violet and her new friend Boy (yes, that is his name) begin to uncover a ghastly secret. The biggest challenge they have before them is to get the townspeople of Perfect to take off their rose-tinted glasses and see the town for what it actually is.
