Author: Kendra C. Highley
Genre: Contemporary YA 
Release Date: Sept 14, 2015

How far will you go for perfection?

For “Perfect Paige” Westfield, today is “D” Day. As in, she just got one on her calculus test. With her dreams of Stanford, her reputation, and her parents’ expectations at stake, Paige needs to find a way to save face before everything she’s worked for goes up in flames.
Ben Franklin (yes, he’s related) is from the wrong side of town, with the wrong clothes and the wrong kind of life. He also knows an opportunity when he sees one, and he’ll be happy to tutor Paige—if she makes him into the kind of guy her best friend, the hottest girl in school, will date.

It’s the perfect arrangement. And Paige is determined not even the inconvenient—and utterly imperfect—attraction simmering between her and Ben will ruin it…

The Songs of Finding Perfect

I’m one of those writers who has to have music in order to write. But it’s more than that—I have to have a playlist, specific to each book, complete with songs that the major characters. The playlist for this book was really important: Paige is all about her music, and Ben loves it, too. I needed songs that pointed to who they were, inside and out. So what did I listen to? Here’s fifteen songs from the list:
  1. “Demons” by Imagine Dragons
  2. “Radioactive” cover (Imagine Dragons) by William Joseph
  3.  “Here With Me” by Susie Suh and Robert Koch
  4. “A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay
  5. “Oblivion” by Bastille
  6. “I Lived” by One Republic
  7. “Stolen Dance” by Milky Chance
  8. “Love Love Love” by Of Monsters and Men
  9. “Wrapped Around Your Finger” by The Police
  10. “Every Breaking Wave” by U2
  11. “Heartlines” by Florence + Machine
  12. “Iridescent” by Linkin Park
  13. “Stay” by Rihanna (feat. Mikky Ekko)
  14. “Fix You” by Coldplay
  15. “With or Without You” by U2
