– A Seventeen Best Book of 2017

“A fun, swoony, and romantic novel that honestly expresses the trials and tribulations of finding the right one.” —BuzzFeed

“A sweet summer read about a boy looking for love and the lengths he will go to to find it.” —Teen Vogue

“You can count on Perfect Ten to make you laugh, think, and, ultimately grow—what more can we ask from a coming-of-age love story?  L. Philips treats her characters and her characters’ love with the respect and heart they deserve. An absolute delight to read.” —John Corey Whaley, Printz Award–winning author of Where Things Come Back

Perfect Ten is a smart, messy, complicated romance, full of swoony kisses and lie-on-the-floor heartbreak and unexpected twists of fate—just like love itself.” —Katie Cotugno, New York Times bestselling author of How to Love and 99 Days 

Perfect Ten is a perfect ten. Romantic, sweet, and far wiser than expected. A breezy romcom that is as smart as it is fun, with characters that leap off the page.” —Bill Konigsberg, award-winning author of Honestly Ben and Openly Straight

“The most fantastic, hopeful, aspirational story of gay teens in a red state since David Levithan’s Boy Meets Boy.” —Aaron Hartzler, author of Lambda Literary Award finalist Rapture Practice

Perfect Ten is: 1. Adorable 2. Heartbreaking 3. Funny 4. Delightful 5. Unexpected 6. Queer 7. Moving 8. Honest 9. Unapologetic 10. A must-read.” —Michael Barakiva, author of One Man Guy

Perfect Ten is as charming as it is relevant. A stunning, twenty-first-century teen romance that will have readers begging for more. In a word, it’s Magick.” —J. H. Trumble, author of Lambda Literary Award finalist Don’t Let Me Go

“Cute and catchy . . . An engaging read.” —Romantic Times

“This surprisingly tender rom-com explores relationships with an authenticity that’s full of heart and poetic splendor. The novel bravely examines some of the pitfalls of young love in a manner that neither makes Sam unlikable nor lets him off the hook for his behavior. His decisions and actions aren’t always admirable as he navigates his way through his mistakes and inexperience, yet they will be sure to elicit sympathy from those who have had their own misadventures in love . . . Fans of Stephanie Perkins or David Levithan will discover much to love about this sweet confection of a tale.” —School Library Journal

“Like its literary godparent Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan, the point of L. Philips’ lighthearted story isn’t to reflect reality so much as to enhance it. A fun, sweet and sexy summer read for anyone who’s ever sought (and maybe even found) that special person, perfect or not.” —BookPage

“Sweet and satisfying . . . Like one of the ultimately lucky three, this is a keeper.” —Booklist

“Philips keeps this wish-fulfillment fantasy moving briskly, thanks to the quippy dialogue” —Publishers Weekly
