Publisher's Summary

From the beloved author of Because of Mr. Terupt comes the sequel to The Perfect Score, about a lovable group of students at Lake View Middle School and the rewards and challenges of seventh grade.

These students are in for a year of secrets, discoveries, and kid power!

Gavin finally joins the football team - a dream come true! - but Coach Holmes refuses to play him for reasons that also threaten to tear Gavin's family apart. 

When Randi attends an elite gymnastics camp, she uncovers a startling family connection. 

Scott starts researching an article for the school newspaper and stumbles right into a hornet's nest of lies. 

With his loser older brother, Brian, out of the house, Trevor's life is loads better - until he realizes only he can save Brian from getting into deep trouble. 

Natalie's top goals: (1.) find out why Mrs. Woods and Mrs. Magenta no longer speak to each other - a mission shared by all the kids - and (2.) teach a certain someone an important life skill without anyone knowing. It's tough keeping secrets. And tougher still to deal with the fallout when secrets spill out.

Cast of narrators:

  • Ozzie Rodriguez, as Gavin
  • Caitlin Davies, as Natalie
  • Robbie Daymond, as Scott
  • Abigail Revasch, as Randi
  • Todd Haberkorn, as Trevor

Luv it

I love audible. Sometimes it’s weirder when I start a book and then listen to the audio book. I have a set voice in my mind then I listen to the audio and the voice changes. But, audible can’t change that.

The Perfect Secret is an amazing read. The plot and the way that the characters connect together will make you want to connect with them. It is a sad, happy and exciting read.

Perfect follow-up!

My 10 year old has read all of the Buyea books and this one didn't disappoint. We really enjoyed this one for its realistic situations like immigration, hate crimes, and family struggles.

We had a lot of great family discussions about the tough topics that came up. Great read!
