Perfect Chemistry - Simone Elkeles It never fails to puzzle me to see which books become hyped and which don't. I could see Perfect Chemistry being every bit as famous as Twilight, yet so few people have ever heard of it! But perhaps I should just give it time. After all, it took Twilight a couple of years too ;)Shannon recommended this book to me, and I'm glad she did, otherwise I probably wouldn't have heard about it yet. It's a fascinating alternative West Side Story (only much better! Never did care for WSS - nor R&J for that matter), with an ending that turned out to be not nearly as sugary-sweet and perfect as I had expected... not immediately so anyway. It had me in tears more than once and was more poignant than I had expected a book of that genre to be. The epilogue was more than a little corny though.It had definite shades of "Ten Things I Hate About You", but as I loved that movie, that's definitely not a bad thing ;)
