Jaclyn Hyde is almost perfect. But when she discovers the last batch of perfection potion in an abandoned laboratory, Jaclyn decides that being almost perfect isn't perfect enough anymore. The potion turns Jaclyn into Jackie, a goblin-like monster who'll do anything to make sure Jaclyn comes out on top. Suddenly, she's wreaking havoc on the school play, stealing someone else's brownies to pass off as her own, and even destroying someone's painting to get herself crowned "Artist of the Week." And that's just the beginning.
So now, if Jaclyn wants to save her school, her friends, and herself from her perfectly horrifying alter-ego, she's going to have to screw up her courage and risk it all — even if that means admitting that she never was as perfect as she seemed. Annabeth Bondor-Stone and Connor White bring their signature wit and humor to this thrilling new take on The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
"With the help of her loyal friends, Fatima and Paige, Jaclyn learns that being the best version of yourself is better than being perfect. Readers of all ages will find Jaclyn relatable and redeemable even after Jackie comes to life. Jaclyn's parents and idolized older sister inadvertently push Jaclyn to strive for perfection, while her friends help ground her in reality.... This modern take on a classic focuses on friendship, family, community, and being your best self." — Hilary Tufo, School Library Journal
