The fiction piece “Perfect” by Kelsey H. is sad considering it’s about a girl with cancer, but it’s more than that. I found the story hard to understand because I couldn’t imagine experiencing what the character was going through. She tries to hide her illness from her classmates, afraid that if they know she has cancer, they won’t think she’s ­“perfect” anymore.

The protagonist seems very strong. She doesn’t want people to feel bad for her. The doctors tell her that she probably has only a year to live, and yet all she is worried about is hiding her illness. I think this story teaches a good lesson that even though you might think someone is perfect, they probably have problems too.
