Here's the synopsis,

 

A fresh, urban twist on the classic tale of star-crossed lovers.

When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more. In a passionate story about looking beneath the surface, Simone Elkeles breaks through the stereotypes and barriers that threaten to keep Brittany and Alex apart.

Re: perfect chemistry by simone elkeles

i saw this book and i wasnt gonna get it but on the back they had an excerpt:

 

          "Miss Ellis?" Mrs Peterson says. It's your turn. Introduce Alex to the class.”

          “This is Alejandro Fuentes. When he wasn’t hanging out on street corners and harassing innocent people this summer, he toured the inside of jails around the city, if you know what I mean. His secret desire is to go to college and become a chemistry teacher, like you, Mrs. Peterson.”

           Brittany flashes me a triumphant smile, thinking she’s won this round. Guess again, gringa

.         “This is Brittany Ellis,” I say, all eyes now focused on me. “This summer she went to the mall, bought new clothes so she could expand her wardrobe, and spent her daddy’s money on plastic surgery to enhance her, ahem, assets Her secret desire is to date a Mexicano before she graduates.”

          Game on... 

 

i couldnt resist after i read it

Re: perfect chemistry by simone elkeles

I read it and thought the book was awesome! I also could not put it down. The author's other books are also very good. I'm in the process of reading Leaving Paradise right now, and so far it is just as good as Perfect Chemistry.
