Book Review - A Perfect Mistake

A Perfect Mistake

About the Book

In A Perfect Mistake you get a moving, voice-driven novel about friendship, responsibility, and fighting against unfair expectations, for fans of Rebecca Stead and Erin Entrada Kelly.

Max wishes he could go back in time to before he was diagnosed with ADHD, before he grew to be the tallest kid in his class, and before he and his best friends went into the woods in the middle of the night. Max doesn’t remember what happened after he left his friends Will and Joey and the older kids who took them there. He’s not sure if he wants to remember. Knowing isn’t going to make Joey talk to him again, or bring Will out of his coma.

When the local authorities run out of leads, Max realizes that without his help, they may never know what really happened to Will. Charged by the idea that he may be the key to uncovering the truth, Max pairs up with classmate and aspiring journalist Sam to investigate what really happened that night. But not everyone in the community wants that night to be remembered.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that in many ways normalized ADHD. You do not always see this in a book, but this book really allowed you to see and experience this in a new way. The author has done a great job a creating characters that you can empathize with but also connect with because they feel like people that you really know.
