What inspired you to write this book? The idea for Perfect Escape came to me, as story ideas so often do, pretty much out of nowhere. One day the first sentence- I was six the first time we found Grayson at the quarry -popped into my head, and I envisioned this little boy hunkered down against a pile of rocks, miserable. That vision stuck with me, and I mulled it over for several months before finally sitting down to write this story. ISBN 978-0-316-20196-4.

Perfect Escape" by Jennifer Brown is another fantastic read. I'm starting to believe that woman can't do anything wrong when it comes to writing. Just as with her other books, she isn't scared to pick up a difficult topic in this book and doesn't shy away of showing flawed characters, people who make mistakes and who aren't always good.

I’d driven around forever looking for a place where I could get Grayson a sandwich, but no place was open. My plan was to stake out a clean-looking corner in one of the empty main lobby waiting rooms, drop the food off there, then go get Grayson and let him go to town with the new antibacterial wipes I’d bought. We could picnic in the dark, and then maybe stretch out in the shadows for a free night’s sleep

Having read Torn Away by Jennifer Brown, I expected much of Perfect Escape. I wasn't disappointed at all. Kendra, needing to be perfect to compensate for her brother's mental difficulties, has to do something desperate to remain perfect. Despite the fact that this book isn't a suspense laden, adrenalin inducing read, I couldn't put it down. The magic of this story is all in the brilliantly crafted characters.

Grade: C

Perfect, good girl Kendra, four weeks before graduation, is about to get caught as the ringleader in a cheating scandal. She grabs her brother Grayson, who has debilitating OCD and is fresh out of a psych hospital, and they take to the road. The plan is to drive cross country to see her best friend Zoe, whose parents moved her to California to get away from Grayson. Along the way they pick up a young mother and her infant. California or bust.

The Good:
-Kendra, Grayson and Rena were interesting, fairly well developed characters.
-Grayson's OCD was handled fairly accurately as were the way Kendra and the parents reacted to it.
-Loved the premise.
-The sibling relationship was portrayed authentically.
-The writing.

The Average:
-The plot was uneven. The beginning grabbed my interest, the middle got repetitive, a big of excitement toward the end.
-Rena. She was an interesting character, but her story, at times, overshadowed the siblings.
-THE PERFECT ESCAPE as a whole reading experience.

The Bad:
-The ending. THE PERFECT ESCAPE just stopped without resolution. I hate that.
-The ending. Hated what resolution there was.

Themes: OCD, mental illness, siblings, road trip, school pressures, teenage mothers, runaways, friendship, road trips

I think most teens will like, but not love THE PERFECT ESCAPE. Those with particular interest to OCD and mental illness will find the book more interesting.

Very good book. It's about a girl who gets in trouble at school and decideds that she will run away to avoid the trouble she is in. She takes along with her an unknowing Grayson, her brother with severe OCD.

Together they set out from Missouri to California to be reunited with the main character's best friend. She hopes that together they can cure Grayson of his OCD. I have it a four out of five simply because it was a bit predictable, but otherwise I couldn't put it down, just like all Jennifer Brown books!

I really enjoyed the perfect escape, it kept mr in suspense thriughout the book waiting to see the outcomes of every awkward situation that the characters got themselves into. The relationship between the two siblings seemed really believable, Jennifer Brown did an excellant job in writing this book.

I had started to read this book and lost it at my aunts house. I was sooooo mad because I loved the book to much. I found the book and I began reading it and finished it.

This book was so amazing. The plot. The ending. The characters. The whole concept of a perfect daughter and a messed up brother going on a trip they never imagined.

"Perfect Escape" by Jennifer Brown is another fantastic read. I'm starting to believe that woman can't do anything wrong when it comes to writing.
Just as with her other books, she isn't scared to pick up a difficult topic in this book and doesn't shy away of showing flawed characters, people who make mistakes and who aren't always good. And an ending that is fitting to the story and not forced into a happily ever after mold.
And that's why I loved it. I loved the rawness of the emotions, I loved that at times I really wanted to slap the crap out of the characters. And I loved how it made me feel.

Now don't get me wrong, there were plenty of moments in which Kendra annoyed the daylights out of me. She's a teenage girl who messes up in school and takes her OCD-ridden brother on a road trip. That's a recipe for some disastrous moments - but isn't that what truly makes people grow?
Well, I could understand her need to be perfect and I got that she always felt like she was second to her brother Grayson or even more so third, because there was also his OCD that took up a lot of attention. And I totally understand that this must be tough on a teenager whose feelings are already all over the place as is - add to that the pressure of being the good one, of not letting anyone down and then a wrong choice too many - yeah, that could make everyone snap.
But then there were times that she was just so caught up in her head, fixiated on her own problems and not seeing that her brother wasn't doing the things he did on purpose. At times she just came across really selfish but even then I could see where she was coming from. It was really hard to hate her even in the moments when she was a self-centered cow.

And then there was Grayson. I don't know what to say about him. Twenty, a genius, and completely controlled by his OCD. And I don't mean the kind of OCD people joke about like...I don't like raisins in my bread. No, I mean the kind of OCD that cripples you, completely takes over who you are and who you could be and controls every little aspect of your life. That's what Grayson goes through. And my heart broke for him, every single time. His despair was palpable, it was real and it was so damn raw and intense. Even though told from Kendra's POV, it didn't lessen the impact of what Grayson goes through every single day of his life. The fact he was still standing, still trying- that's true strength.

And the bond between the two siblings was amazing to see, especially for an only child like me. Even in the moments when they more or less hated each other, they still deeply cared for one another and were putting the other first. Despite the difficult topic there were many funny moments and the banter between them had a lot to do with it. The situations they got into were often challenging, sometimes sad, then funny again but all of them were touching in their own way.

I enjoyed this book a lot and can highly recommend it.

4 that-was-quite-a-trip stars.
