In Perfect Escape, Kendra has always known she has to be the perfect child. Her older brother's crippling OCD creates enough problems for her family without her adding to them. She has the perfect friends, the perfect grades, and the perfect future. But keeping perfection going is hard.
When Grayson returns unexpectedly from residential treatment, right as Kendra's life is falling apart, she impulsively decides to hit the road. She gets in her crappy car and heads to California in search of an old friend, and she takes an unwilling Grayson with her.
Since I have two brothers of my own, my favorite part of this book was the relationship between the brother and sister. Kendra and Grayson snipe at each other, have private jokes, and remember stories of childhood. While they have real problems that no road trip is going to fix, their sibling bond is strong enough to help them face just about anything.
