Because hrian that sort of misgendering bullshit puts me off. Brian Sage is a transwoman. I didn’t write the synopsis, and newer versions of the book say she is ‘biologically male. Thanks for your question. See 1 question about Almost Perfect…. Lists with This Book.

It was really long, really confusing and the worst perfsct So after careful consideration I’ve decided to re-write it. So let’s get this party started! Logan is our narrator. Logan is a jock. Logan is also a fucking prick. In fact, if it wasn’t for Logan I may have given this book four stars. If you had been watching my Goodreads ratings a few months ago you would see that I did, at least for a little So a few months ago I wrote an Almost Perfect review.
If you had been watching my Goodreads ratings a few months ago you would see that I did, at least for a little while.
But then I remembered Logan. For god’s sake the entire premise of wlmost fucking story is Logan acting like a prick. And I know this. But yet I am still surprised with how much of a prick he really was.
His prickness went sort of in a cycle, katchef this: Sage tries to tell Logan that he probably doesn’t want her. Logan pursues Sage anyway Sage gives in and Logan finds out or remembers that she’s really a boy and katcber out. Sage’s heart gets broken. Sage and Logan make up and decide to just be friends. He just keeps doing that. Treating Sage that way. And it fucking bothers me. Sure, one could say I’m being judgmental.
One could say that Logan was just lost, just confused, just hurt like Sage was. One could say that if it was me in Logan’s position I would act the same way. And I could say that the person saying those things is wrong. I don’t give a fuck how “confused” or “lost” you are. If you are a fucking prick you are a fucking prick and you should not get away with it. And no, kqtcher Logan, my momma raised me so I actually don’t make a habit of treating people like crap. And it isn’t like A,most just shocked.
He gets outright angry at Sage. From what I remember, he even punches her in the face. He throws her Christmas present back at her feet. He makes her fucking miserable. I can not sympathize with someone like that. I could not stand being in Logan’s head. I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with this pen at the time, scribble over the pages to black out Logan’s stupidity or stab my own fucking eyeballs prrfect.
Don’t even get me started on how he treats his other male friends. Seriously, is this guy a fucking sociopath? I’m sorry, sociopaths reading this. I shouldn’t have compared you to Logan. In fact, she’s the only reason I read the almosst to end well it sure as fuck wasn’t Logan.
The only thing I found fault with was how easily she was willing to kill herself because she couldn’t get her way. Well, that was a terrible way of wording it, wasn’t it? It’s not like she’s just a spoiled child. I mean, this is her gender we’re talking about here. But that’s not what I mean.
I can’t exactly remember her name right now. Her sister loves her, has stuck up for her when her parents were being dicks and has supported her for her entire life.
And Sage is so willing to take her own life without a single thought of Tamara. Because it isn’t like her train of thought is “She’ll be much better without me” like other people who commit suicide despite their loved ones. And that’s not very cool. Of course, we could say that Logan fucked Sage up so badly that she just didn’t even give a fuck anymore.
Imagine if you move to a town. Your closet friend who you have a crush on does what Logan did. Tell me, go on, tell me that wouldn’t mess with your psyche, even a little bit. I fucking hate Logan. Let’s move on again I think this novel would have been better from Sage’s perspective. Despite her slight selfishness, like every human has, she surely is the one we sympathize with.
And she’s the one we side with.
And she’s the one we actually care about. I don’t give a fuck about Logan. I want to know about Sage.
