9780316185578: Perfect Escape

Kendra has always felt overshadowed by her older brother, Grayson, whose OCD forces him to live a life of carefully coordinated routines. The only way Kendra can stand out next to Grayson is to be perfect, and she has perfection down to an art -- until a cheating scandal threatens her flawless reputation.
Behind the wheel of her car, with Grayson asleep beside her, Kendra decides to drive away from it all -- with enough distance, maybe she'll be able to figure everything out. But even in the midst of the road trip's flat tires, gas-station food stops, and detours to quirky roadside attractions, eventually Kendra must stop running and come to terms with herself, her brother, and her past.
With undeniable grace and humor, acclaimed author Jennifer Brown explores OCD, the pressure for perfection, and the emotional highs and lows of a complex sibling relationship.

Descrizione libro Little, Brown Company, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Kendra Bolten knows what it s like to be overshadowed by a sibling. Her older brother, Grayson, is a genius, but his OCD forces him to live life through a series of carefully coordinated routines. It seems as if he can t survive without counting, symmetry, constantly washing his hands -- and the whole family revolving around him. Kendra feels that the only way she can shine in the presence of her brother is to be perfect -- something she has down to an art. She s a straight-A student, has plenty of extracurricular activities, and always makes the right decisions. But when Kendra finds herself the ringleader of a cheating scandal in her Calc class, her mistake could jeopardize the perfection she s worked so hard to attain. For once she knows exactly how Grayson feels when he expresses his wish to just run away from his OCD. Behind the wheel of her hand-me-down car, with Grayson asleep in the passenger seat, Kendra makes a decision. Together, they ll drive away from it all -- get some distance, find help for Grayson, prove that she s still the perfect girl-in-control -- and maybe her colossal mistake will look a little more forgivable.Eventually though, no matter how far they go, there is nothing for Kendra to do but to face what she s been running from.
