Review: Hey Nobody's Perfect by Ann Herrick

Title: Hey, Nobody's Perfect
Author: Ann Herrick
Release date: June 24, 2012
Genre: Young Adult

Life was complicated enough for Sivia before a guy with no legs came into her life.

Her parents' divorce did not wipe out their traditional family values. Dad is still way too self-centered, Mom is still resentful, Russ is still shoving food in his mouth and Sivia doesn’t need any more drama. But when the new student, obnoxious and legless Keeley, becomes her project partner, her life becomes even more complicated. Family friction, peer pressure and her overly controlling father are threats her budding relationship—but prejudices she never knew she had and doesn't want to acknowledge are the biggest hurdle of all.

My Review 

Thank you to the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Hey Nobody’s Perfect is about a high school student named Sivia dealing with the normal complicated life of a teenager. Her parents are divorced and don’t really see eye to eye. Her dad is controlling to the point where she feels overwhelmed with his demanding nature.
Her perspective of life changes when she meets Keeley. He is dorky, cute, funny, and different. Keeley was born without legs.  Sivia was partnered up with Keeley for a class project. This allowed them to spend time together. The more they hung out, Sivia had a hard time with her feelings about Keeley. All her life, she has been one to care about what others think about her. She has allowed her dad to rule her life because she didn’t want to disappoint him. Just like any other high school student, Sivia is worried about what her peers may say when they see here with Keeley. Through their friendship, Keeley teaches Sivia that no one’s opinions matter but your own.  Living life to its fullest extent is our greatest gift and should not be taken advantage of no matter what your circumstances are. Keeley gave Sivia the courage to do what she always wanted, and that is to live. I truly enjoyed reading this story. It was deep, meaningful, and overall a beautiful story. I wish the story did not end so abruptly. I would’ve loved to see more of Keeley and Sivia. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick, but beautifully written YA story.
