Comments The Perfect Tree

  • Taylor Dean

    The Perfect Tree is a ‘coming of age’ story. It captures the feelings of childhood perfectly—that stage in life when you’re still a kid, but you’re making the transition into the teenage years. The characters of Blake and Greta act and think like real children and I think this is what kept me so very intrigued. I love a book that portrays a child as a child, with child-like thoughts, not adult thoughts. It reminded me of my childhood; the innocence, the carefree days, and the first ten [...]


  • Helen

    This is a beautifully-written story set in rural America of two children who meet by chance. Blake has worked on his parents' farm all his life, while Greta has recently moved from the city. Both outcasts, they develop a close friendship. This coming of age story is written from the children's point of view, and the author manages to write their thoughts and feelings in such an open, honest way that you feel as if they are real people and not characters in a book. Their childhood innocence is ab [...]

    This is one of the best books I've read in a while. It really held my interest and I didn't want to put it down. I loved the way I saw the world through a child's eyes and felt as if I were right there with Blake and Greta. I liked how you can see that the world isn't all flowers and rainbows. The ending actually surprised me. Very good twist at the end. I won't spoil it and tell you how it turns out. ;) Overall, excellent read!


  • Ben Wilson

    If you are looking for a story that will grip you, get this book. I am not one normally to get drawn into a story but this one did the trick. You will find yourself growing to love the main character, Blake and Greta. With twists and turns every step of the way I was not able to put it done. I hope the author has other works in mind I can't wait to read them.


  • Nikki

    There were a couple of little inconsistencies that bothered me with this book. An unknown girl was at one point referred to as an unknown boy. The main character claimed he didn't have an aunt living in the area and then shortly after it's revealed that he does. Times to travel distances were more story (so certain events could happen after dark) -convenient than real - eg it took the two kids over 8 hours to walk to a house (they left at 7:30 am and arrived some time before dusk). They then wal [...]


  • John

    I started reading and couldn't stop. This is a coming of age, mystery, romance, thriller I'm not sure what to call it except a captivating read. The characters are well written and complex. The story is constantly changing, but in a good way. You think you know what the whole story is, but you don't. I finished reading and the book kept me up a few hours after thinking about the story, the ending and that tree. That's unusual for a story to get to me that much. Just shows the prowess of the writ [...]


  • Natasha House

    This book starts off in first person with a little girl who writes poetry and is encouraged by an elderly man to continue her writing. Then one day he seems to disappear. Then it jumps to a separate character and further into the future with a little boy named Blake. It takes you on twists and turns of this little boy’s life as he meets a girl, who’s his neighbor, and they become fast friends. They encounter bullies, creepy houses, a man living an abandoned house and other normal type life s [...]


  • Devyn

    When I started this, I expected a traditional coming of age story with such a young set of characters but what you end up getting is an exploration of what trust is, what humans are capable of, and just how love can help overcome tragedy. Despite the youth of the characters, their maturity jumps off the page and you are left wishing that you had been that cool when you were in middle school. It'll leave you guessing until (quite literally) the last sentence. Blake and Greta have to handle some o [...]


  • Tim Heath

    Overall, I'm impressed. A good book, well written. I was blown away by the quality and accuracy of the first two chapters (from memory, certainly the first chapter). Writing was strong, use of language and flow very refreshing. I could see a lot of effort had been made to get these chapters flowing.Like a child passing themselves of as a grown up, the book takes a similar transition not long after those opening scenes. We're in the heads of a 12 and 10 year old for the most part. Errors do then [...]
