Real, not perfect  Cover Image Book Book

Real, not perfect / Stephanie Coleman ; created by Lissa Halls Johnson.


Tessa has lived a trouble-free life as the only child of two loving parents--she is well-liked, gets straight As, is on the competitive swim team, and is active in her church youth group. It's a pretty perfect life! That is, until she comes home from swim practice one day to find that her parents are divorcing. Along with that, her BFF has moved to Florida, and Tessa gets stuck in Intro to Drama--possibly the worst class ever! Soon Tessa's mom sinks into despair and Tessa struggles with her anger and hurt. Meanwhile, her BFF posts fabulous pictures of her new life on Instagram. Tessa thinks that everyone's posts show lives that are way better than the one she has. Why does it seem like everyone else's life is more perfect than hers? Find out how Tessa's new friends from Intro to Drama and Alex, her true-blue friend, help her discover that real is better than perfect. -- Provided by publisher.
