Review – Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown
The only way Kendra can stand out next to her brother Grayson (suffering from OCD) is to be perfect, and she has perfection down to an art — until a school scandal threatens her flawless reputation. Behind the wheel of her car, with Grayson asleep beside her, Kendra decides to drive away from it all — maybe with enough distance she’ll be able to figure everything out.
Perfect Escape is the story of what happens when all of a sudden, everything becomes too much and driving away seems to be the only option. Kendra has been caught in the midst of a cheating scandal which threatens her college future. Her older brother Grayson suffers from debilitating OCD. He’s just released from his last stint in hospital when the book starts.
I love Jennifer Brown; I think her novels are all very well done, especially Hate List. I loved the premise of this, and it didn’t disappoint too much. Brown writes Grayson’s OCD with a realistic style that can only be applauded. Kendra’s feelings towards her brother are ever-changing but I think that’s fitting to the story itself – everything is changing around the siblings.
