|“||You don't have to be good to be perfect.||”|

The Perfectionists is the first book of the book series of the same name, written by Sara Shepard. The book chronicles the story of five girls with nothing in common but a desire to strive for perfection. That desire, though, leads to a deadly implication.
Book Cover Summary
- Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie and Parker are all driven to be perfect—no matter the cost. At first, the girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover that they all hate the same person: handsome womanizer Nolan Hotchkiss, who's done things to hurt each of them. They come up with the perfect plan to murder Nolan—jokingly, of course. They'd never actually go through with it. But when Nolan turns up dead in the exact way they'd discussed, the girls suddenly become prime suspects in his murder. Only, they didn't do it. So who did? Unless they find the real killer, and soon, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.
The book contains thirty-seven chapters, as well as an epigraph, prologue and a pre-chapter "Five days later" at the beginning of the book.
