Publisher's Summary

Violet never wanted to move to Perfect. Who wants to live in a town where everyone has to wear glasses to stop them going blind? And who wants to be tidy and perfectly behaved all the time? Violet quickly discovers there's something weird going on - her mam is acting strange, and her dad has disappeared.

When she meets Boy she realises that her dad is not the only person to have vanished...and that the mysterious Watchers are guarding a creepy secret!

Great Story!

This kept all of us, my 7 year old daughter, 9 year old son, husband and me all hooked. It was a really imaginative and unusual story. My daughter found some of the descriptions of the eyes a little gory, but it was perfectly pitched to provide a little mild horror without being too scary. Would highly recommend.

AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!

This book is a great choice for anyone who wants to step into another world. Not only does it make you question about the world/story but it makes you realise that there is such a thing as, 'too perfect.' I love how imaginative the story was, the unique characters and how easy it was to read it then fall into the story. It really was quite addictive. Also, the theme of family and friends throughout the book gives you a nice sense of understanding and comfort. The narrator was good too.

However, the only bad thing is that the plot was very predictable and I had the basic idea of what was going on in the second chapter of the story. This meant that you felt the writer did not make it that hard for you to figure it out, unless this was intended for younger people like 10yr olds.

I myself am 13 and really enjoyed the book, despite this. Overall, I think anyone who gets this story will not regret it because of the relatable characters and captivating story. This is a very easy, exciting read that everyone can love.

Fantastic!

This book was absolutely incredible! The only thing is that the narrator was a bit annoying but the story was fab. I would recommend this book to 9-12 year olds because there is a surprising amount of violence. Great book totally recommended!

blooming loved it!

I've flitted around from all of Phillip Pullman's novels in one go, to gritty police drana/thrillers ,.historically based mysteries and back to a right good story aimed at youngsters and I have always known that this is my go to genre and I'm 48....and I will not apologise for it. Such imagination and humour and a VERY good reader too, totally recommend!!!

One of the best bed time stories in a long time!

We absolutely loved the story of Violet and the Boy in a town NotSoPerfect (even the scary bits)! And we can't wait for next parts!

Amazing just amazing!

This is such a great book though I don’t think the second and third are as good.Apart from that I highly recommend for any young readers!
