When sixteen-year-old Christina Jacobs comes to school one day and discovers that life will never be the same again, she soon finds herself sinking away into self-doubt, haunted by her troubled thoughts and experiences and striving for acceptance and equality.
Fate was never easy on her, having given her an appearance far from desirable and a family situation far from the norm, but when she is forced to face it all on her own, forced to battle her inner demons, she knows she needs to give all she’s got to fight her way back to the surface and get her life back on track.
“Just Perfect” is a grippingly honest account of love and friendship, betrayal and trust, and inner demons and the fight for a better tomorrow.
Targeted Age Group:: Young Adult (14+)
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
For over two years, I had been working and reworking “Just Perfect,” being first inspired to start writing it as a result of the difficult times I myself have gone through. Feeling the need to help others through the sharing of my personal struggles – experienced by so many others as well – I believed it would be incredible to share my work with the largest audience possible. And it is.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Many of the characters are based off of people I have met in my life. In this way, I could create characters that truly come alive on the page. Although all fictional characters, their personalities and/or physical features are all from a mix of people I know.
As I turned into Caldon Street, I sensed an ominous presence. I looked around, but the narrow passage revealed nothing but shadows. The tall, dilapidated buildings and occasional stinking trash heap provided cover for any predator, and I decided to drive near the middle of the road for safety.
My mind raced. Maybe I was imagining it; maybe there was nothing going on at all and I was just making up scenarios in my head. I was driving myself insane. I’d always had a flowing imagination – what else could there possibly be?
