We are the Perfect Girl by Ariel Kaplan is a retelling of the Cyrano De Bergerac. For those of you who are not familiar with the classic, this is how goes: Our main protagonist Aphra Brown is bold, outgoing, sociable but believes herself to be quite ugly due to her imperfect nose (our modern-day Cyrano De Bergerac).
