Review: Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales
This was such a fun read. The scenes with Darcy and Brougham are so much fun, and strike a perfect balance with Darcy's unrequited crush on Brooke. Darcy's reaction in both scenarios is human and some huge life lessons are learned along the way. Bisexuality and bi-erasure are core themes at the heart of this novel. Both are discussed honestly and in at completely age-appropriate level for YA. None of the characters are perfect and that adds to the fun. My only grumble is that toward the end Darcy becomes a little too self-sacrificing--after all, both Brooke and Ray have made some serious (but totally human) mistakes of their own. Then again, who wants to read about perfect characters?
Overall, there is a lot to love about Perfect on Paper and I am keen to read more from the author.
