It's Got to be Perfect
Girls, sex, drinking, drugs, fights, destruction of property and a dead body - it's a lot for a teen in school to handle, especially when he's trying to figure out who he is and who his friends really are.
Sam Leahy is a shy, fifteen-year-old boy navigating two social worlds: the uptight bullies at his all-boys' private school and the small uncouth gang in his neighbourhood.
