The Perfect Pull
The Perfect Pull


Fifteen-year-old Alyssa Simone has a secret, but common, disorder that causes her to pull out her hair: trichotillomania. Since the fourth grade Alyssa has been compulsively pulling her hair and wondering why she can't stop. Now a sophomore in high school, she is doing everything she can to try and appear normal. She attempts to blend in at a new high school while her mother, a Barbie doll look-alike thanks to plastic surgery, signs the two of them up to star on a reality show and the cameras are rolling. As if that were not enough, Alyssa worries she might never receive her first kiss while her popular and beautiful best friend constantly texts her updates of her numerous romantic conquests. Alyssa realizes her hair pulling is completely out of control and yet she can't seem to stop it. She goes to desperate measures to hide the problem from her mother, classmates and the camera, but it's nearly impossible to keep it a secret. Then she realizes she is falling for a guy at her school who reciprocates the interest, and the truth starts to come out. The Perfect Pull is a hopeful and empowering read for teens and adults written by an author who has overcome the disorder. For ages 11 and up.
