Just listen was an enjoyable read. Not one of my all time favorites though, but i did for the most part enjoy it even though some times i was so bored i put the book down. The good thing about that fact though it took me a long time to read and i was on a long trip. I maybe would sugestest it i to read to some freinds.

PERFECT CHEMISTRY by Simone Elkeles


PERFECT CHEMISTRY by Simone Elkeles


At Fairfield High School, on the outskirts of Chicago, everyone knows that south siders and north siders aren't exactly compatible elements. So when head cheerleader Brittany Ellis and gang member Alex Fuentes are forced to be lab partners in chemistry class, the results are bond to be explosive. But neither teen is prepared for the most surprising chemical reaction-LOVE. Can they break through the stereotypes and misconceptions that threaten to keep them apart.



This story, was fantastic!!!!! I really enjoyed this unique novel. It shows two different people that come from two very different worlds can be perfect for each other. Simone makes all of the charters come to life. The story switches views from Alex and Brittany, and i enjoyed this a lot because it not only shows the difference between the two worlds, and the way both charters see each other, but it has Spanish which was very neat!! This was one of those great novels that i couldn't put it down and devoured in one sitting!! You feel the pain, the passion, and the love between the charters. Perfect chemistry really made me look at things differently. I am going out and buying all of the novles Simone wrote!!
