"Perfect Strangers" by Jahnna N. Malcolm [aka Jahnna Beecham and Malcolm Hillgartner] -- Getting picked on in high school is never easy but having a humiliating event happen to you in front of the entire high school student body can be a catastrophe for any freshman. Madison had such an event happen to her during her freshman year Homecoming celebrations, and has been holding a grudge against Jeremy (the boy who put the catastrophe in motion) ever since.

Now almost three years later at the end of their junior years to major events are happening. One event being the school is starting a “pen pal” program. The program is set up so the students have been randomly matched with someone in their own grade so they might be able to share their inner most thoughts without reveling their identities to the other person. In a way the program make is so if anyone is having issues with something they’ll have someone who they can vent to who won’t be able to gossip about it to anyone else. With the program Madison is definitely reveling who she would truly like to be to her “pen pal”, more so then she has even told her friends, and is finding that they have more in common then she would have thought.

The second event is the election for Class Presidency is starting up, which is something that Madison has been wanting to win since her freshman year. The only problem is her enemy, Jeremy, is one of the people she is running up against. She hasn’t spoken to him or been around him since that time at the Homecoming Game and she doesn’t want to, but now there is no way to avoid it.

As the election heats up and Madison’s “pen pal” letters start heating up too. Will her “pen pal” finally be reveled? Will she win the class presidency? Dive into "Perfect Strangers" to find out all the juicy details!

4.5 out of 5 stars! It is a sweet YA book. For the short length of the book the characters are really well written and come together nicely! The book reminds me of Megan McCafferty’s Jessica Darling series, since you have the same type of main characters (the straight-laced girl and the slightly eccentric handsome guy) only with a shorter more straight-to-the-point plot.
