Perfected (Perfected, #1)
by Kate Jarvik Birch

Perfection comes at a price.

As soon as the government passed legislation allowing humans to be genetically engineered and sold as pets, the rich and powerful rushed to own beautiful girls like Ella. Trained from birth to be graceful, demure, and above all, perfect, these “family companions” enter their masters’ homes prepared to live a life of idle luxury.

Ella is happy with her new role as playmate for a congressman’s bubbly young daughter, but she doesn’t expect Penn, the congressman’s handsome and rebellious son. He’s the only person who sees beyond the perfect exterior to the girl within. Falling for him goes against every rule she knows… and the freedom she finds with him is intoxicating.

But when Ella is kidnapped and thrust into the dark underworld lurking beneath her pampered life, she’s faced with an unthinkable choice. Because the only thing more dangerous than staying with Penn’s family is leaving… and if she’s unsuccessful, she’ll face a fate far worse than death.

For fans of Kiera Cass’ Selection series and Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden series, Perfected is a chilling look at what it means to be human, and a stunning celebration of the power of love to set us free, wrapped in a glamorous—and dangerous—bow.

This book had a very interesting dystopian world. It was very unique, and I enjoyed this book.

I felt bad for Ella. She was very dumb and unaware, but at the same it, it wasn't necessarily her fault. I wanted to shake some sense to get at some points, but I am excited to see her character development through this series. 

The storyline kept me interested in the story. I thought the story was paced pretty well. There were some surprises in this book, but there were also things that were very obvious and predictable. The romance was quite predictable, but it was a cute romance so I couldn't help but like it.

The ending left me very excited to see what will happen next. I think this has potential to grow into a really good YA dystopian series.
