Insulting a guy in a wheelchair--is that any way to start a romance?

Books for Kids & Teens

Life was complicated enough for Sivia before Keeley came into her life.

Her parent's divorce did not wipe out their traditional family values. Dad is still way too self-centered, Mom is still resentful, Russ is still shoving food into his mouth and Sivia doesn’t need any more drama. But when the new student, obnoxious and legless Keeley, becomes her project partner, her life becomes even more complicated. Family friction, peer pressure and her overly controlling father are threats to her budding relationship—but prejudices she never knew she had and doesn't want to acknowledge are the biggest hurdle of all.

Hey, Nobody's Perfect is a story about serious issues told with both sensitivity, humor and romance.

Excerpt

As I sat down I recognized the messy dark hair, the lopsided smile, and eyes that took in the whole room. "You're the jerk—"
"Hello again." He stuck out a bike-gloved hand. "I'm Keeley Parrish. Sorry about splashing you." Briefly, he flashed a grin. "It was purely unintentional, I assure you."
I didn't want to stare. But I was afraid to look away. I was so surprised to see him that it'd taken a couple seconds for it to register that he was in a wheelchair.
Then I saw his legs. Or rather, I didn't see his legs. I mean, he didn't have any legs, except for these stubs that ended a few inches above where his knees would have been. That explained parking where he did. I felt myself shrinking. "S-s-s-o you're Keeley," I finally managed to whisper as I reached over to shake his outstretched hand. With a nervous glance at Ms Baker, who was thumbing through some file cards, I added, "I-I'm Sivia Groner."
"You're friendlier than I thought from our first encounter." One corner of his mouth twisted upward. "Why is that?"
I studied his face for a moment. He completely didn't strike me as someone who was looking for pity. "Because you're not as much of a total jerk as I thought you were."
Keeley threw back his head and let out a deep laugh.



Professional Reviews

Outstanding!
HEY, NOBODY’S PERFECT is an outstanding teenage romance. I was highly impressed with the characters of Sivia and Keeley. The supporting characters of Brad, Marcy and Todd added so much in-depth character to the overall development of this story. I feel this is a book that every teenager should read. There are so many life lessons in this one book that it is a very eye opening experience. Ann Herrick is a wonderful author who has allowed her readers to go into the lives of a set of high school teenagers. It is refreshing to see how they experience their own way of finding the love they deserve.

Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Reviewer, Mystic Reviews




Heartfelt Honesty
Hey, Nobody's Perfect is a skillfully written teen romance which embraces the hallmark coming-of-age issues that beset most youth. Sivia not only learns the importance of being true to herself when communicating with her dad, but gains courage to show her love for Keeley in the face of perceived peer judgment from the kids at school. This book is filled with honesty, tenderness, humor, and serious moments that will appeal to teens and adults alike.

Absolutely perfect!
"… I thought the story was absolutely perfect. I hope other readers will get so indulged in this book, like me, that they can't put it down.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! ;)
