Real, Not Perfect is a sad but uplifting story about a teen named Tessa and her struggles in the family life, friend life, school life, and relationship life. Stephanie Coleman writes an intriguing novel that i have already read so many times. It also shows how to stay close to Jesus, and i truly appreciate that!! It is book one in a series of four, about four friends: Tessa, Shay, Izzie, and Amelia. A good read, and i recommend it to all teenage girls ready for a good read!!
