    This Tiny Perfect World is a Young Adult contemporary novel. The book takes place in Florida. The narrator is 17 year old Penny (1st person POV). Penny has gotten a scholarship to a prestigious theater camp. So by day she takes the bus to the theater camp where she has new friends. And at night she has her old friends Logan and Faye.She lives in a small town, Christmas Florida.

So by day she takes the bus to the theater camp where she has new friends. And at night she has her old friends Logan and Faye.She lives in a small town, Christmas Florida. The camp is a bus ride away in Winter Park, the fanciest neighborhood in central Florida.There is definitely a big divide between her poor town and the rich kids that attend the camp. It was interesting to get to see both parts of Penny's life. Although I much preferred everything to do with the theater camp. The camp was doing one play (The Glass Menagerie) and one musical (Spring Awakening). I love theater so I absolutely loved that this was such a prominent part of the story. I also really liked her two friends from camp: Sam (girl) and Chase.The story is basically about a girl who is trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. She has a boyfriend when the book starts (which I didn't love because I prefer to read about a single girl who then has the opportunity to meet her guy during the book).However, other than that small issue I really liked almost everything about this book. It totally kept my interest. And there were definitely a few things that I did not see coming.Overall, I thought that it was a cute YA story. And if you love theater then this book will keep you entertained. Also, the ending of a book is everything to me. And somehow the author managed to get to all of the things that I wanted her to address. Thanks to edelweiss and HarperTeen for allowing me to read this book.

Her future was predetermined, and she was ok with that. However, after Penny was accepted into a competitive acting camp, her little world began to grow, and she started to see that there were a lot of different opportunities out there, and that she may want to explore them.I'm a girl from small-town Florida - we stay here. This Tiny Perfect World was a very thoughtful and honest look at one girl's struggle and doubt about her future. I think many people will be able to relate to this story on some level, because so many young people (and older people too) reach a point in their lives, where they are faced with some exciting and scary choices, and will have to determine what they want from life.Penny always thought she wanted to stay in her hometown, inherit her mother's diner, and marry her childhood sweetheart, but her summer in a new environment really opened her eyes. She began questioning what she wanted and what she thought was possible. Gibaldi did an incredible job conveying Penny's struggle to the reader. I felt her fear of losing the things she knew and loved, but also her excitement for the things she could have.Gibaldi assembled a fine cast of characters to accompany Penny on her journey. I thought her theatre friends, Sam and Chase, were great windows into her new possibilities. I found them fun, likable, and felt that they pushed Penny in all the right ways. Her best friend, Faye, was always there for her, and I really appreciated the way she supported Penny. I have to say, Dad was a stand out, and he and Penny shared some really special moments on-page. His love for his daughter was crystal clear, and he did what any good parent would do. He tried to advise and guide his daughter, but allowed her to make her own choices.There was a lot of fun built into this book. I had lived in Florida for several years, and visited central Florida often, so I was a fan of the setting. The trips to downtown Orlando, as well as our days at camp, created a nice backdrop for the story to unfold in. I even had fun while Faye and Logan were babysitting.Although this book had an fairly wide open ending, I was ok with it. The ending seemed appropriate for this story. Penny was still figuring things out. She was 17, and her ending didn't happen yet, therefore, it made sense that the book left room for her to continue growing and searching for her happily ever after. Although the ending was not all tied up, we do get some idea of where Penny stood on certain aspects of her past and future life, and I really was pleased with the direction Gibaldi went with that.Finished? No. Partway there, yes, but not finished. Never finished. When you're finished, you have nothing left to learn.Overall: A very real and believable story of one small-town girl's struggle with the life she knows and what surprises await her outside of the home she knows and loves.*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review BLOG | INSTAGRAM |TWITTER | BLOGLOVIN | FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS

I went into it not knowing much, except that it's a story about a girl who kind of outgrows her small hometown and realizes the future she imagined there might not be what she really wants. When I realized that a lot of this novel would take place at a theatre camp and there'd be wonderful (musical) theatre references, I was even more excited about this.The theatre camp was definitely an aspect of the story that I really enjoyed and I loved the friendship portrayed through it and how it can bring people together.In the beginning I was annoyed a lot by the characters. I thought the main character was a bit bland but she absolutely grew on me and I thought her character development was really good. I also thought the female friendships she had, both with her best friend, Faye, and her new friend from camp, Sam, were portrayed in a great way.My biggest issue was probably Chase, a guy that Penny befriends at camp. Especially in the beginning he was insufferable and a lot of his behaviour was downright problematic. I can't believe he insisted on calling Penny “Penelope” throughout the WHOLE NOVEL, with her constantly correcting him because that's not how she likes to be called. Call me petty but this is a certain male entitlement that I am ABSOLUTELY sick of seeing. I also think it's annoying that he's constantly asking Penny if she “still has that boyfriend”. Come on Chase, be a bit more classy. There's a lot of behaviour by him that irritated me immensely and I think he could've been written differently and would've benefited the story a lot more.That said, even though I wasn't a big fan of Chase's behavior, the “love” triangle was actually one of my favourite aspects of the novel. Now I'm putting “love” in quotation marks because it's not really an accurate term but as far as I know we haven't come up with a term like “crush” triangle or “maybe potentially interested in” triangle, so I have to stick to it.The reason I liked the love triangle was because it represented so much more than a love triangle. At the surface level it was about two boys, yes, but if you really look at it, it just portrays the conflict the main character is going through in her life. This is exactly the kind of love triangle I'm looking for, one that just offers a bit more. A lot of people will find it annoying nonetheless but I appreciated it.While I'm at that topic I wanna mention the emotional cheating that is involved. I get this is a no-go for a lot of people and that's totally fine. But I thought that a lot of it redeemed itself at the end of the story. I wish the main character had been honest to her boyfriend a bit earlier on but after finishing this book, I can see that a lot of this made sense.Really, looking back at it, in a lot of ways it almost feels like Chase was used as a plot device and I'm not mad about it.I also liked that this book showed that wanting to kiss someone does not necessarily have to mean you love this person and wanna be with them. This is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves with YA books and even with the way we review them a lot of the times, so I was happy that it was explicitly mentioned in the story.I truly loved reading about both Penny's small hometown life and the theatre camp and with that also the differences in wealth in her friendship groups. Throughout the novel she learns that she might want to branch out but at the same time appreciates her hometown life more and learns not to be ashamed about in front of other people. She starts to see it from a different perspective BECAUSE she's branching out and I thought that was wonderful.And I loved the family dynamic between Penny and her dad and how we saw their relationship grow and develop throughout this novel. There was also a really great conversation about bisexuality in this novel that I deeply appreciated and might have been one of my favourite I have ever read about in YA.I do think the ending was a bit rushed and I definitely could have lived with a couple more pages but in the end the novel did everything it intended to do.It's a really great coming-of-age novel that had a big emotional impact on me.I received an ARC of this through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a super cute, light and fluffy YA romance. It wasn't super risky but had a likeable heroine who didn't do what I was fearing she would do, and an enjoyable setup. I've been reading a lot of dark and depressing books lately so it was really great to read something light! Great book to read on your vacation!

There were no useless fights, or unnecessary drama.The Dad: Although YA is the king and queen of fractured families. The dad here meant so much to the story and to the main character. Not only was he doing it all on his own--and trying to guide his daughter along--he was dealing with some pretty heavy stuff himself, which made for a more interesting read.The best friend: Her role wasn't pivotal to the story--but it's nice that she always had the MC's back no matter what. Everyone needs a friend to root for them, at all times.What didn't work: There's not much negative to say in terms of the book, the pace, and the characters--the book itself is okay, it's just okay. There's a lot of self discovery--and internal struggle for the MC--and though the direction of the author is fairly obvious, it does get a little drab.Maybe it was personal, but the book was hum drum, it didn't incite any strong feelings one way or the other. That's not to say it wasn't a decent read--it's just pretty middle of the road.Conclusion: It's a great fit for a contemporary reader, or a younger reader in that period of self-discovery--just looking for their place, and how to figure it all out. I think the MC is a good example of the struggle between what's safe, and what might make you happy--even though it might be scary.

    This is Gibaldi's best novel yet. Penny goes to theater camp for the sake of the experience, while convinced she is content to live the rest of her life in her small town with her loved ones, and to take over the family business. The more time she spends at theater camp, the more she rethinks her plans for the future, and wants to give herself the chance to go out into the world. But how does she break this to her boyfriend, or her father? A beautiful book about embracing uncertainty and change.

The backstory is usually set up to be dreary, to have a negative influence or present some kind of control over the character over the course of the novel. The character is shown to overcome this conflict, internal or otherwise, as they are making their way. This is exactly what I saw when reading This Tiny Perfect World. While the plot is predictable, there are some good messages that the plot contained, as well as Penelope's, the main protagonist, inner voice. A lot of her struggles are personal and relate to some of the relationships she has or makes during her summer that the story covers. Penelope was always positive, even when doubtful, and showed that she had a lot to learn and grow throughout her small journey of recreation of character. She discovers what she wants, even when she already knows what her future may hold. Overall her story conveyed that you never really stop learning; there is always room to grow and to develop your own sense of character, or recreating yourself. What exactly do you want from life? This is one of the great questions I think this book asks not only from the character, but from the reader as well. On an aside note, I'm really glad Penelope was given conflicts in regards to her relationship with her boyfriend, Logan. She had several opportunities to mess that up for herself, but chose not to. It really shows that she still maintains great control and is clear about what she wants in that regard. Don't stop trying for yourself! Everyday is a new day, so you always have a chance to be someone new. This book has this message on almost every page.

    Though Gibaldi does not take risks with breaking out of the young adult formula, her straightforward, honest writing makes this story an engaging and enjoyable one. The novel highlights that it is possible for teens to use their individual interests to carve out a niche within the intimidating world of high school cliques.

    This Tiny Perfect World is the third book by Lauren Gibaldi that I've read. While I can't say that Lauren Gibaldi is a favorite author of mine having read these three books, I can say that she's fairly consistent. The biggest correlation between the three books that I've read (The Night We Said Yes and Autofocus) is "coming of age". For some reason coming of age stories aren't usually my favorite. So I don't fault Lauren Gibaldi's writing so much as the plot for these types of stories. The purpo This Tiny Perfect World is the third book by Lauren Gibaldi that I've read. While I can't say that Lauren Gibaldi is a favorite author of mine having read these three books, I can say that she's fairly consistent. The biggest correlation between the three books that I've read (The Night We Said Yes and Autofocus) is "coming of age". For some reason coming of age stories aren't usually my favorite. So I don't fault Lauren Gibaldi's writing so much as the plot for these types of stories. The purpose of these types of books is to show how the character grows from the place where they begin the story over a series of conflicts that allow them to learn a lesson resulting in "growing up."The description of This Tiny Perfect World led me to a few false conclusions about Penny. Without spoiling things for you, I tend to assume that when a character is in a romantic relationship at the beginning of a book then the relationship is doomed. Penny begins the book with a boyfriend yet he's not who the description mentions so I just assumed that Logan was destined to be dropped like a bomb. Things don't go how I expected, but they aren't as far off from what I imagined as they could have been. Logan, himself, was a bit of a struggle for me as a character because he was so whiny and insecure. I struggle with this type of person in real life and I find them doubly annoying in books as well.As a typical coming of age story, Penny does have quite some growing to do. One of my favorite aspects is how she developed some new friendships without dropping and moving on from her existing friends. Just because she's expanding her view of the world and her potential future doesn't mean that she has to leave her old world and friends completely behind. Although, Penny does have a lot of growing and learning about herself left to do.My biggest frustration over This Tiny Perfect World centers around Penny's father and his storyline. It was predictable to me, yet I found myself struggling for multiple reasons. My faith for one, but beyond that....Penny finds out a huge secret about her father. And from someone who has had a parent keep a pretty big secret, this isn't so easily blown off as Penny allows it to be. When anyone keeps a giant secret from you, it causes conflict and trust issues that aren't so easily overcome. And you can't just say "I'm the same person you thought I was...well except this part of me" and have that fly. I mean have you guys ever watched a single episode of Catfish? Nine times out of ten the person being deceived can't get over the huge lie that they've been told just because the other person tells them that their feelings toward them were real. Yet, I feel like more than anything, Lauren Gibaldi was taking the politically correct stance on this issue. Because how dare Penny actually take issue with the fact that her father has kept this part of himself secret from her. How dare she possibly be upset by this revelation. No one is allowed to be in control of their own feelings because the media and modern culture has determined that only one response to a situation like this is acceptable. So my issue is that I felt Penny was forced to feel one way because of the political correctness of our time, yet I felt that her response wasn't authentic from the standpoint of someone who's experienced a huge relationship shaking revelation from a parent before.All of this being said, This Tiny Perfect World was not my favorite book. I read it at a decent speed, but "coming of age" stories just aren't my preference. I don't find that I enjoy reading books that are just about the character learning a lesson or growing only just for the sake of learning a lesson. While I did find Penny's father's secret to be predictable, I didn't feel her response to his revelation to be authentic. I was torn on how things went down with Logan. While things didn't go as I expected, I can't say that I loved what did happen. In the end, This Tiny Perfect World gets 2.5 Stars. Have you read This Tiny Perfect World? What did you think? Let me know!

In This Tiny Perfect World, we are streamed through the world and emotions of the main character, Penny. It’s currently Penny’s summer break, and while her friends are pursuing jobs, she is participating in a summer program for actors. Penny is from a small town, where no one really leaves. But in this story, Penny begins to see that her passion for acting may not be just a hobby and the small-town-world she has perfected with great friends, a loving dad, and a caring boyfriend, might not be enough for Penny to stay after she graduates high school. One of my favorite things about Gibaldi’s writing is that she makes her characters so real and honest. In This Tiny Perfect World, Penny’s inner dialogue is so gritty and vulnerable. I enjoyed watching Penny challenge herself to push forward; she dares herself to take on acting roles that are so different to her normal lifestyle. But it’s through theater camp and her play-acting friends, Penny discovers there are dreams and goals beyond her small town walls. Penny thought she already had her life planned out after high school, but she acknowledges that not everything is black and white. Situations change. People change. And people, like herself, are on a continuous journey of figuring who they are and what they want in life. Overall, This Tiny Perfect World is different that Gibaldi’s other two books, because it is not as swoony and romantic-based. Instead, the focus in this book is on Penny’s individual character development. I like that Penny’s life begins on such a narrow and focused path, but by the end of the book, Penny realizes her world is wide open to more possibilities. This story is very straight-forward, thought-provoking, and will have you engaged in internal dialogue of a teenager who has a loving soul and a fierce spirit to mature and discover the world around her.

I loved the family dynamics between Penny and her father. We got to see how their relationship evolved as the time went by and we learned more about each character.The thing I loved the most about this book is it's about self discovery. Penny feels as if her future is already decided for her: go to community college after graduation high school, take over her father's cafe, and probably get married to Logan. As she goes to the theatre camp and becomes friends with some of the other teenagers, she starts to question her future. That's perfectly normal as most teenagers don't know what they're going to do when they grow up or their future ends up being something totally different than what they imagined. I just really liked that this story showed that. Showed the indecision and how she comes to terms with it.I also liked how Logan and Chase represent different aspects/parts of her life. Logan represents the part that feels obligated to stay and take over the cafe, and Chase represents her love for acting and the unknown future in front of her.Overall, I enjoyed this story and loved how theatre is a part of it as one of my friends loves theatre. I also really liked the conclusion and how everything played out.Note: I received a free copy of this story in exchange for an honest review which in no way affects my opinion.

    I appreciated this book because in the end, the boys were a catalyst, not what defined Pen. Too often in YA, outgrowing a place/age/person means trading in one boy for another. Here, Pen realized that she needed to be alone to grow. So while her relationship with Chase greatly influenced her growth, it didn't become her story.

The progression through Penny's summer was believable, and in many ways relatable.I just wish that there had been more depth to the characters.
