The protagonist of A Place called Perfect is a girl called Violet. She has to move to Perfect because Violet’s dad is a dentist. They meet the town leaders of Perfect, George and Edward Archer. They offer them some tea. Violet is reluctant to have any as she doesn’t like tea, but the tea is delicious. Whatever you want the tea to taste like is how it will taste. If you want it to taste like orange juice, it will taste like orange juice. If you want it to taste like water, then it’ll taste like water. Violet really likes it so she drinks a lot of it. The next morning, she wakes up and she is totally blind! She gets some glasses and miraculously, she can see again. For some reason, everyone in Perfect has to have glasses and everyone is Perfect at everything they do. For example, her mum is terrible at cooking but in Perfect, she’s really good. Violet’s dad then disappears and she tries to work out where he’s gone. Luckily, she meets a person called Boy. They start to investigate this and find out some very interesting facts.
This book is full of twists and turns. In each book, you find out something new. It is excellent and extremely exciting.
This book is part of a trilogy and is the first book in the series. This book is suitable for ages 9+. It is also suitable for adults as well.
This book depicts a dystopian future. It makes me think of how it would feel to live in a totalitarian regime. It’s not actually that far from reality because in North Korea it controls everything its citizens do.
If you decide to get this book, I hope you enjoy it.
