Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

This was an awesome book!

When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

I loved this book so much! Simone Elkeles is an amazing author! I bought this book on a whim and I am so glad I decided to get it. It was a sweet heart warming story with twists and turns that will make you feel the emotions that the characters feel. The way this book is written allows you to see inside the two main characters heads, I normally don't like books like that. But Simone wrote is well-enough to where I love the way its written, and I love that I know what the characters are thinking. I strongly recommend this book, it was marvelous.
