But feelings appear and Alex starts to second guess the bet but also the relationship when Brittany begins to open up about her life introducing him to her deepest secret, but doubt returns once more knowing that the gang lifestyle that had claimed his father's life is bound to claim his also.
Finally he leaves the gang and he proposes Brittany in marriage. Brittany is perfect, or so it seems. Her home life is the root of her struggles. Her parents are considering sending her sister away to a home for people with disabilities while her boyfriend is trying to convince her to do things that she doesn't feel ready for.
Brittany's mother is very concerned with appearances and controls Brittany to present the prefect facade. Ellis likes to hide behind his work and doesn't communicate much with his family.
Brittany always ends up caring for her mentally and physically disabled sister, Shelley. Alex Fuentes - One of the two main protagonists of the novel.
Alex is the bad boy that no one wants to mess with - at least that's what everyone thinks. He struggles greatly with the murder of his father and will stop at nothing to prevent his younger brothers Carlos and Luis from entering the dangerous world of drugs, alcohol and gangs. His ex-girlfriend Carmen is constantly on his back, trying to keep him involved in gangs and with her - even though she has cheated on him many times.
Brittany is a pretty awesome heroine, though she did have her silly moments telling Alex to apologize to the artist I loved Shelly and I like how the family problems attempted to work themselves out toward the end.
Did I mention that I loved this book? Elkeles writing style is very unique. In this trilogy, she uses the two main characters of the book to narrate-- which I think is very exciting because in this way, readers are able to "be in the minds" of both characters. The trilogy revolves around three brothers Alex, Carlos, and Luis who all have different personalities but share similar stories of finding true love and escaping the dangers of being involved in a notorious gang. Perfect Chemistry starts off the trilogy by telling the story of Alex, the oldest brother.
The book well really, the whole entire serious captures all of the emotions and WARNING: you may have a hard time setting the book down once you get into it!
I finished this book in one night! If you enjoy romance and adventure and want to escape reality for just a bit, definitely check out this entire trilogy! I, however, really disliked it.
The relationship depicted is extremely unhealthy, the dialog is rather dated, and the epilogue was just about the corniest, most unrealistic thing ever. Perhaps I wasn't in the right headspace, I don't know why Having far different read: white, middle class, suburbian high school experiences to draw on, I was fascinated with the culture and ethnic contrasts depicted in the story compared to my own life perspective.
I can't agree or disagree over realistic or accurate culture differences, but I enjoyed seeing things from another point of view.
I'll spare you the summary, since you can read that anywhere - instead Ill share what tickled my grey matter the most.
I did feel the strong Romeo and Juliet elements. Rich, white, privileged, beautiful cheer squad captain meets intimidating, emotional baggage-carrying, Mexican gang member.
They fight to overcome their differences and, in turn, see their commonalities. This could have easily come off as cliched however, the story never felt forced or unbelievable.
I also caught the struggle from both "sides of the tracks", of stereotypes and the expectations of conformity regardless of birth, education, money or social status. Breaking out of those expectations and stereotypes are a struggle, especially for teens with wide open futures and fragile dreams. What if a different life road was opened to us, one we dare not hope for, let alone aspire to achieve?
Good things to ponder.
