Title: An Otherwise Perfect Plan
Genre: Young Adult
Book Synopsis: An Otherwise Perfect Plan is a laugh out loud YA Novel, narrated by the quirky Gwen Pendergrass, a sophomore in high school, who infuses this contemporary coming-of-age story with sarcasm, hyperbole, and wild flights of fancy—including a paleolithic “Shark Tank” with the builders of Stonehenge—all as she tries to make sense of her life with a single mom working two soul-crushing jobs, dysfunctional high school teachers, and her own wild emotions which seem to have a mind of their own.
Her riffs on life, modern society, and the virtues of several kinds of chocolate take us on a journey of discovery as she and her best friend Peter unravel the mystery of who her father actually was, along with the mysteries of her own emotions, ultimately reminding us that the journey very often IS the destination.
