    One thought on “Almost Perfect”

    1. So a few months ago I wrote an Almost Perfect review. It was really long, really confusing and the worst part: really, really fucking boring. So after careful consideration I've decided to re-write it. So let's get this party started!First -- Logan.Logan is our narrator. Logan is a jock. Logan is also a fucking prick.In fact, if it wasn't for Logan I may have given this book four stars. If you had been watching my ratings a few months ago you would see that I did, at least for a little while. B [...]

    2. This book was Almost Perfect. (pun intended) It took me a while to get into this book. I actually almost stopped reading it. Logan just wasn't an appealing character he was sort of boring actually and I struggled with the novel as a result. However, I can admit by the end of the novel Logan really grew on me, and the authenticity of his voice came shining though.The writing was, well I felt like someone decided to throw a few SAT words in there just for fun. I hate when people use 'big' words ju [...]

    3. Most of us, I suspect, have "met somebody" who would be just perfect, exceptI look back on some of my "almost perfects," and I cringe at what a douchebag I was.Logan has just broken up with Brenda, and he's not optimistic about his prospects. He's a senior in a tiny high school (50 seniors). I went to a similar school: my class was 44, and it was hard to date girls I'd known since age nine.One day, Sage walks into biology homeroom. Sage is tall, quirky, has a great laugh, and most of all, is fro [...]

    4. ETA, four years later: this book still makes me angry and upset, more so because it won the Stonewall. And I find that I never, ever, ever want to recommend it ton anyone. Ok. Mixed feelings on this one. I don't think this has ever been done before! The plot was new, powerful, and very compelling to read unfortunately also made me feel sick. As a queer reader, the tension between identifying with Logan (fairly likeable, pretty well-developed, sheltered, first-person narrator) and identifying wit [...]

    5. Great book! There are a lot of great reviews for it, but I'll add my own for my friends. This book is great, but difficult to read. It's about a college senior whose girlfriend of 3 years broke up with him. While he's still quite vulnerable, he meets Sage. In a small town, having a new student is exciting. She's tall and quirky, and he thinks quite pretty. They become friends, but she keeps telling him that they can ONLY ever be friends. She isn't allowed to date, and that's all they will ever b [...]

    6. Honestly? Don't bother.Our hero, Logan, is insufferable. He's that way from the beginning until the very end. He's the kind of guy who thinks every woman in his life owes him something for nothing. His ex, Brenda, apparently owes him sex since they were dating for three years; he actually regrets being respectful of her boundaries when they were dating. Sage owes him explanations about her life just to make him feel more comfortable with the fact that she's trans, not out of any actual concern f [...]

    7. THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS! ********************************************Hmmm. 2.5 stars. This is the story of how straight, male, small-town Logan falls for new girl Sage, then shuns her when he finds out she was born a boy, then slowly patches up their friendship and eventually their romance. Pros: Boyer: I haven't grown up or lived in a small town, but I've always wondered how people get "stuck," both physically and in their intolerant mindsets, and I feel like the description of Boyer was [...]

    8. This was a fast read, but it was difficult. Though it was realistic, it was hard to read all about the main character's process working through his transphobia, and the whole thing reeked of tragi-trans. Also, there were infuriating moments of racism thrown in. I'd say this isn't a book for trans teens, but may help non-trans people empathize and somewhat better understand some of the dangers and emotional struggles facing mainstream trans people, and may illuminate and hopefully combat some of [...]

    9. OmG, this book was so frustrating to me! Half the time I didn't know whether I wanted to race through the pages to find out what happened or throw it across the room.Logan is a small-town teenage boy who just broke up with his girlfriend of a few years after finding out she cheated on him. He's so not over her until the new girl walks into his biology classroom. She's tall, with curly red hair, freckles, and braces. She wears weird, standout clothes. And Logan is completely taken with her.After [...]

    10. A 3.5 star book, rounded up.The blurb lays out the plot of Almost Perfect neatly: Logan is falling madly for Sage, and then he discovers that she was born a he. So this is much more about Logan's struggle to understand and accept Sage as she is than it is about Sage herself. Logan is, honestly, a bit of a jerk on more than one occassion, to Sage and to other people in his life. And it is completely, entirely realistic. This does not make Logan's narration easy or even pleasant to read at times, [...]

    11. I started out really liking this book, but by the time I was done, I was glad to be rid of it. Sage, Sage I felt was a real character and not just what Mr. Katcher felt a transgender person would be. Logan starts out as a likable enough character with genuinely funny moments of narration, but the humor is lost as the book progresses and multiple acts of being exceedingly callous really made me dislike him by the end. (Plus, Logan seems to have this extreme paranoia male genitalia that I found ve [...]

    12. a book written by a man from the perspective of a man who has feelings for a trans woman. man is transmisogynistic and "sees the light". I'd rather read a book about a trans woman, not how a cis male perceives her. Sage is like this transgender manic pixie dream girl who helps the narrator see the error in his thinking. This book is on many reading lists for books about trans women and it shouldn't be, this is a book about a cis male who has a short lived relationship with a trans woman and is p [...]

    13. I absolutely love this book. It's about teenagers dealing with not so teenage problems. These kids have had to deal with situations no teenager should have to deal with. Everyone has an opinion on the subject, including myself but I am not going to discuss that opinion now. Do we really know what we would do or how we would handle things? Until you have been there, how do you know. I recommend this book to anyone with kids because it could apply to many situations.

    14. DNF @ Page 17.I just can't get into this. I tried. Maybe one day I will try again. I have way too many books to read.

    15. MY OPINION: *****This book dealt with topics that I honestly have never thought to read about before, or I just didn't have a chance to.This book is about a boy named Logan who has just suffered a break-up with his three-year relationship with his girlfriend, Brenda, who cheated on him. He thinks that his luck with girls is basically nothing nowUntil he meets Sage, the new girl in his science class.He immediately befriends her, but being a teenage boy, he obviously wants their friendship to beco [...]

    16. This is a beautiful, powerful, emotional read. It grabs you by the heart and gets into your head like few books I have ever read. It’s the first book in a very long time where I not only had no idea how it was going to end, but was sincerely concerned with how the situation would resolve itself.I could write an essay about this book, what it meant to me, and how I feel about it. I loved it and I hated it. I was afraid to read another chapter, and I never wanted it to end. My head wants me to w [...]

    17. I don't know. (That's in response to the prompt above this box that says "What did you think?")Here's what I do know:I started to get really nervous about 20 pages from the end, and the ending felt like a punch to the gut. I cried for about half an hour and was upset for the rest of the evening. Then I got angry and wrote a blog post with so much profanity in it I'm embarrassed to publish it as my review. So let me try to do a pro-con list.Pros:Sage is a pretty riveting character. I would probab [...]

    18. I made the mistake of picking up this book for light reading. There was no dust jacket, but on the back of the hardcover, which had the above cover actually printed on it, there were critic reviews, and one recommended it for lovers of John Green books. There was no summary, so I thought maybe it was a cute love story that doesn't work out.So as I was reading, I was thinking, "Eh, this is okay." That's the kind of response I wanted, anyway. I wanted a White tea book, and the mysteriousness of Sa [...]

    19. I love this story. I think it's a big eye-opener. It's not really a HEA but more of a cautionary tale. Logan and Sage could have had a very beautiful relationship, but Logan let too many things block him along the way. He begins as someone closed-minded and slowly see his mistakes. Often the journey is one step forward and two steps back. Maybe someone will read this and be more open to things they don't understand. I'm a big supporter of everyone's rights, but, as far as I know, I've never had [...]

    20. Words cannot describe how good this book is. Wow! I cried my way through it. Sage's struggle to be herself and live as the girl she knew she was touched my heart. I so wished for a happy ending for her. Alas that was not to be and her story ends rather tragically with the reader wondering what the future holds for her and for Logan, the narrator of the story and Sage's one time lover. I so wanted to reach through the pages of this book and knock some sense into them which in my opinion makes for [...]

    21. This novel is tough to rate. On one hand, it's a powerful story about a boy falling for a transgender female. On the other, some aspects weren't handled poorly and some were difficult to read. I considered stopping a couple of times, but the fact the novel won the Stonewall award kept me reading. Overall, I'm glad I finished because though flawed, it's an interesting story that illustrates some of the struggles transgender youth face.

    22. I wanted to love this book, I did. I just didn't.Let me start off by saying that I am glad there are books out there for teenagers that even attempt to tackle the concept of being transgender. I'm goddamn thrilled. So, really, the rest of this review is nitpicky stuff. The rest of this review is genuinely for a time in the future when books with transgender characters and themes are so mainstream and common that it is no longer necessary to celebrate them as the sole outlets for such themes, or [...]

    23. This is the story of Logan. He's a senior at a small high school in a small town in Missouri. His dad abandoned their family, leaving a single mom/waitress to raise Logan & his older sister alone in a mobile home. Logan has a girlfriend who breaks his heart junior year, and he's pretty much given up on romance until a new girl starts at school: Sage. Sage is beautiful, brilliant, confident, passionate, a little quirky and best of all? She seems to like Logan. They form a delicate friendship [...]

    24. I read this book for a booktalk assignment for my YA resources class, but I don't think I can do it. I'm finding it difficult to enthusiastically recommend this book. It's told from the point of view of a guy, Logan, who falls for a girl, Sage, who turns out to be MTF trans. She's a really interesting character, maybe a bit saintly, the way she keeps forgiving him for being a jerk, but the book is really about the guy. It reminded me of those movies about South African apartheid that were always [...]

    25. I found this to be an extremely interesting book. I wanted to give it a 4.5 star rating because I really did like it, but the character of Logan did become a little whiny toward the end. It also was not a "can't put it down" book - for me; there may be others to whom it makes a more personal connection.I liked the way the relationships were handled and the way the central topic was handled. I felt that Logan reacted in a realistic way, as did the boy who reacts violently toward the end. (It is u [...]

    26. Edit (12/7/11): I've given this a second read (this time in audiobook format), and I liked it more the second time around.Original Review:I knew I shouldn't stare, but I couldn't look away. Girls this strange didn't exist in Boyer. They lived in Columbia or Kansas City or places like that.High school senior Logan Witherspoon has known all of his classmates since kindergarten. In a town the size of Boyer, MO, everyone knows everyone. So, it's a surprise when a new girl, Sage, joins his biology cl [...]

    27. This was a good book. I know that because I wanted to smack the main character upside his self-centered, very true-to-life, homophobic, teenaged boy head. In spite of Logan being the protagonist, I did a little mental cheer when another character told him, "This isn't about you! Because it wasn't. It's not even about Sage. I think it's about society, perceptions, and the horrible experiences of so very many LGBTQ people. Sad but true, Sage actually kind of lucked out. Her parents weren't happy w [...]

    28. I'm usually desperate to read any lgbt book I can get my hands on, and when I found a book with a trans* character I was really excited! By the end of the book however, I was simply angry and disappointed.Logan (the narrator) is a regular boy in a small town. Sage (the love interest) is a new student at Logan's school. Logan finds her attractive and wants to date her. Sage likes Logan too but warns him that she's not what he's looking for. Logan pursuits her none the less. And when Sage is revea [...]

    29. Spoiler alert:This book has a pretty great voice. This is a story of a M to F transgender teen living in small town middle America. There are lots of relationships that get examined, between her and her sister, her and her potential boyfriend, her parents the boy and his sister and mom. There is not one character that just feels stock to me. Even the boy and his ex-girlfriend have a pretty realistic conversation later in the book. I do not think this books shies away from the difficulties a tran [...]

    30. The first half of this book was 5 star for me and then I'm not sure what happened. It wasn't any thing to do with Logan's behaviour or Sage. I can't put my finger on it. It just didn't hold my interest as strongly in the second half. Maybe by reading it in two sittings over two days I lost the pace of the story.The writing was smooth and easy, the characters realistic and a lot of fun at times, and the story line was handled with care. Katcher's extensive research is obvious.Unlike some readers [...]
