ADD TO GOODREADS

In a society where genetically perfect girls are kept as pets, Ella discovers her glamorous life hides a dangerous world of black markets, ownership, and slavery.

Kate Birch’s PERFECTED melds the feel of The Handmaid’s Tale with the historic underground railroad and wraps it in a glamorous—and dangerous—bow.



Ever since the government passed legislation allowing people to be genetically engineered and raised as pets, the rich and powerful can own beautiful girls like sixteen-year-old Ella as companions. But when Ella moves in with her new masters and discovers the glamorous life she's been promised isn't at all what it seems, she's forced to choose between a pampered existence full of gorgeous gowns and veiled threats, or seizing her chance at freedom with the boy she's come to love, risking both of their lives in a daring escape no one will ever forget.

Why Am I Waiting?
 If you stopped by my blog last week you might of seen my review for Deliver Me by this author. I really liked that book so when I saw she had another one releasing this year and that it was another Dystopian I was completely on board. Not only does Perfected sound awesome but I'm really curious to see the world she's created for this one and how the "pets" lives vary from that of the normal citizens.
