Finding Perfect by Kendra C. Highley(@KendraHighley) #BookBlitz #Giveaway

Finding Perfect by Kendra C. Highley 

Published by: Entangled Crush

Publication date: September 14th 2015

Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult


For “Perfect Paige” Westfeld, today is “D” Day. As in, she just got one on her calculus test. With  her dreams of Stanford, her reputation, and her parents’ expectations at stake, Paige needs to  find a way to save face before everything she’s worked for goes up in flames.
Ben Franklin (yes, he’s related) is from the wrong side of town, with the wrong clothes and the  wrong kind of life. He also knows an opportunity when he sees one, and he’ll be happy to tutor  Paige—if she makes him into the kind of guy her best friend, the hottest girl in school, will date.

It’s the perfect arrangement. And Paige is determined not even the inconvenient—and utterly imperfect—attraction simmering between her and Ben will ruin it…

Character Interview: Paige Westfield

Hi Paige, welcome. How are you?

Um, tired I guess. How long is the interview again?

Not long. I know you’re busy. Speaking of which, you have a lot on your plate right now.

I do. Senior year is really crazy. So many projects. I get asked to help out a lot.

So I’ve heard. Rumor has it, though, that you’ve been spotted with a guy recently—Ben Franklin, right? Anything we should know about?

Oh, that. He’s just a friend.

So you don’t have a thing for him?

::sighs:: I plead the fifth.

Really? That’s all you’re going to say? Because someone saw you two in your car the other day. What was that about?

I was fixing his hair, that’s all.

That’s not what it looked like, but you’re blushing, so let’s move on. How are things at home?

Okay. My mom still has us on that diet, but I’ve had a lot of chances to sneak sweets lately, which keeps me sane.

And the piano recital?

Ugh, don’t ask. I’m still working on the piece.

Fair enough. Here’s a serious question—where do you see yourself in five years?

Harvard medical school. After finishing pre-med at Stanford.

You don’t sound sure.

It’s…maybe I’m not sure. I don’t know. Daddy really wants me to go to Stanford, and my mom isn’t good about changes to “The Plan.” Even if I wanted to go somewhere else, I don’t think they’d approve.

But…what do you want?

Wow. You know, almost no one asks me that. Just Zoey. And Ben. Anyway, I’m not sure what I want. I do know I want to work with Alzheimer’s patients, but maybe not as a neurologist like  Daddy.

Understood. So, I heard another rumor—that you hosted a very, ahem, hot car wash at your house the other day.

Oh, God. Please don’t ask me about that.

Okay, but answer this question—did you really make Ben take his shirt off?

::mumbles:: Had to show off the merchandise. For, uh, Zoey.

One last thing—you have a real heart for helping people. Have you ever thought maybe you should take some time for yourself? Take a break?

::wistful sigh:: Yeah, actually. But there’s a lot I have to get done first.

Like fall in love? Uh huh, I see that blush.

Okay, okay. Yes, like maybe fall in love.

Dream Cast: Finding Perfect

The first thing friends ask when I tell them I’m writing a new book is, “Who would play your characters in a movie?” Finding Perfect looks a lot like a John Hughes movie in my imagination, with a great soundtrack and realistic characters. So who would I choose to play those characters?


Paige is brunette, too serious for her own good sometimes, with eyes full of soul and pain she tries hard to hide. Which makes Alice Englert a great choice.


Ben is tall, with glasses, an analytical mind, and a bit of a chip on his shoulder. He’s strong, but constantly worrying about the future. Given his strong personality and hidden vulnerability, I think Asa Butterfield would do him justice. 


Blond, blue-eyed, gorgeous Zoey—who also happens to be a fantastic friend to Paige. A beautiful girl with a surprising side. And for that, we need Elle Fanning.

So, what do you think? Who would you pick to star in Finding Perfect?
