Perfect Chemistry was a very different book, but in a perfect way. In this story, the two most opposite people at high school have their paths crossed. How this happened was by a very unordinary way and the last way anyone would think of—a simple Chemistry class project. Brittney Ellis was the most popular and pretty girl in the senior grade. She was the captain of the cheerleading squad and had a perfect boyfriend, the captain of the football team. Her life was perfect, or so she made everyone think. At home, she had a mother constantly expecting things out of her, a father who was never home, and a mentally ill sister that she had to talk care of. She did have control of her life until Alex came into the picture. Alex lived on the opposite, or south, side of town where all the gangs and Latinos lived. He was a gang member of the worst and most feared gang—The Latino Blood.  This was the complete opposite of Brittney. But when Alex makes a bet with his friends that he will get Brittney to go out with him, he doesn’t go back on it. Brittney and Alex spend more and more time together, and eventually fall in love with each other. How everyone else in their lives will handle Brittney and Alex’s love, well, I don’t want to spoil the ending. Read to find out! This book was truly captivating and held my attention to the very end. I was unable to put it down with all of the twists and mysteries that both Brittney and Alex held in. I loved how Simone Elkeles brought two very opposite people together and showed how much they changed each other’s lives. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance.
