Finding Perfect; Elly Swartz

Finding PerfectFinding Perfect by Elly Swartz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rounding down from 4.5.

The portrayal of OCD and stress were spot on: how Molly's life is seemingly out of control, and perfection is the only way to gain some sense of "normal". It's easy to see kids in a similar situation having a similar reaction/solution. What felt a little off was the ending, that the resolution felt pat in some ways. Still, that may not matter to the target audience and this exploration of how things can spiral out of control is well worth the read.
