Perfect Chemistry

This is book is written by Simone Elkeles. Brittany Ellis and Alex (Alejandro) Fuentes. Gosh!!! Star-crossed lover! Love the story!! Definitely a must read! Totally romance!! I like Brittany as the character, she is not a 1 dimensional but rather 2. I love her when she really cares so much for her sister who is disabled. I love that side of her and then she met Alex, and … she realizes her fake world and that there’s something real she’s missing out in her life, and that’s being true to herself – not showcasing to everyone as if she’s the perfect girl in the whole wide universe that her solar system stay in good alignment, that making no mistake in life is all she ever focuses on. Totally changed her when she first met Alex that day in the first day of senior year. Like, KABOOM!

Both Brittany and Alex are chemistry lab partners for the rest of the senior year.

What I love about this book too is that the teacher, Ms Peterson, didn’t give on Alex (or Brittany). She kept going, on what she has to do and makes difference in the world, even if it is a small impact by giving detention slips haha. She wants the best for students in any way she can. Same to Dr Aguirre.

Hey, Ms Peterson! I like Chemistry btw. I’m not kidding. But physics seems suitable for me. I like formulas and do some report based on a project haha! ;)

While reading this book, LOTS of songs flooding in my head – singing it from song to song of different lyrics and tunes LOL if that even makes sense at all.

It’s a trilogy, I knew it! Dangit!

SYNOPSIS
A fresh, urban twist on the classic tale of star-crossed lovers.
 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.
In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.
