Perfect Chemistry - Simone Elkeles

I AM FLOORED that I enjoyed this YA Romance as much as I did! I found myself unable to resist turning the pages.

I’m not going to go into the plot much because it’s already been done beautifully!

This is a classic story of girl meets boy, from the wrong side of the tracks, but with a gangsta lean.

What starts out as a bet between Alex and one of his friends, involving Brittany turns into undeniable love. As these two lose their hearts to each other they find there is much more they have in common than what divides them. They are not only separated by social and economic status, but also have the racial barriers to overcome with their family and peers. These two discover so much about each other and themselves in the process.

I found the characters to be very likable, not only Alex and Brittany, but their best friends Paco (love Paco, sniff, sniff) and Sierra as well. In most YA books the best friend tends to be a little annoying., but not here. Paco provides some comic relief at times, and Sierra is wise beyond her years, and proves to be the best friend Brittany needs her to be!!

And Alex Fuentes….*sigh*… They didn’t make them like that when I was in High School!!! ( Just Sayin’)

Thanks to all my GR friends that recommended or encouraged me to read this!!
Elena, XTRA thanks to you, you know why!!!

After reading Rhonda's review. I just realized something. There's no Sierra in either the 2nd or 3rd book. I wonder why. She was a great character in this book. I really liked her.
