An exciting new direction for acclaimed author Elizabeth Eulberg, Past Perfect Life is a tense and tender listen about secrets and lies, reality and identity, and the ways we put ourselves back together when everything is broken. 

Small-town Wisconsin high school senior Allison Smith loves her life the way it is - spending quality time with her widowed father and her tight-knit circle of friends, including best friend Marian and maybe-more-than-friends Neil. Sure she is stressed out about college applications...who wouldn’t be? In a few short months, everything’s going to change, big time.

But when Ally files her applications, they send up a red flag...because she’s not Allison Smith. And Ally’s - make that Amanda’s - ordinary life is suddenly blown apart. Was everything before a lie? Who will she be after? And what will she do as now comes crashing down around her?

Perfect for fans of Far from the Tree, this is the story of one teen’s search for herself amid the confusion of a shattered past and a future far from all she planned.
