Testimony From Your Perfect Girl – Kaui Hart Hemmings | A Book Review

Title: Testimony From Your Perfect Girl

Author: Kaui Hart Hemmings

Genre: Contemporary (Young Adult)

About the book: Annie has almost everything she could ever ask for, but when her dad is accused of scamming others out of their investments, she gets sent to live with her aunt and uncle over winter break.

I received an advanced review copy from Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review.

First impressions: I like the title, and the cover is interesting. I’ve never read anything by Hemmings before, but the premise sounded interesting to me.

Characters: Annie’s flawed, and she develops throughout the story. The story mainly revolves around her, but I wouldn’t have minded learning more about the secondary characters.

Quote:

“I feel so powerful, so in charge, and until now, I didn’t realize that this isn’t always a good thing to be.”

Writing: It’s written in the first person from Annie’s point of view. The chapters are short and simple.

Hemmings doesn’t shy away from difficult topics. She addresses issues like drinking and drugs. Some of the mature scenes would be more suitable for an older audience. That being said, there are lighter moments in the dialogue.

Final thoughts: The ending wraps everything up. I tend to enjoy epilogues, and this one is no exception.

Testimony From Your Perfect Girl is a short but solid read, especially for teens in high school.
