Summary:  Here is my review of a young adult dystopian novel called Perfected, by Kate Jarvik Birch.

Summary from Goodreads:

Perfection comes at a price.

  
What
Where


As soon as the government passed legislation allowing humans to be genetically engineered and sold as pets, the rich and powerful rushed to own beautiful girls like Ella. Trained from birth to be graceful, demure, and above all, perfect, these “family companions” enter their masters’ homes prepared to live a life of idle luxury.

Ella is happy with her new role as playmate for a congressman’s bubbly young daughter, but she doesn’t expect Penn, the congressman’s handsome and rebellious son. He’s the only person who sees beyond the perfect exterior to the girl within. Falling for him goes against every rule she knows … and the freedom she finds with him is intoxicating.

But when Ella is kidnapped and thrust into the dark underworld lurking beneath her pampered life, she’s faced with an unthinkable choice. Because the only thing more dangerous than staying with Penn’s family is leaving…and if she’s unsuccessful, she’ll face a fate far worse than death.

For fans of Kiera Cass’ Selection series and Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden series, Perfected is a chilling look at what it means to be human, and a stunning celebration of the power of love to set us free, wrapped in a glamorous—and dangerous—bow.

I am a big fan of young adult dystopian novels, although with the more and more I read (and the more popular they become), I’ve found that the newer books seem to keep bringing up the same themes and ideas from older ones. This one felt very similar to a couple other books that I’d read – girl bred for a specific purpose, can’t have life of her own – so it felt rather redundant to be honest.

In its own right, in the beginning it was interesting story and kept me motivated to keep reading, but once it got to about halfway through I started to lose interest. The plotline was very predictable and there was very little action or excitement to the story. I just feel like the plot lacked originality and the writing wasn’t good enough to pull it off and save the book.

In summation, it was alright if you really love this genre of book and need something to read, but not worth your time otherwise.
