Max - Age 11

I liked the plot of the story (which I thought was very clever) and the mystery behind what is happening in perfect. It made me think... why is Perfect so perfect? What are the archers doing? And why does everyone wear glasses? Altogether I thought this book was a great read with an amazing plot!

I loved this book because it is super mysterious and you can't guess what is going to happen. When Violet moves to Perfect weird things start to happen; everyone has to wear glasses to stop them going blind. What are the Archer brothers - who run Perfect - hiding?
