The author of "Not Perfect" is Peggy Wood. She explained that the inspiration of her story was written while trying to understand what one of her close friends had told herâthat she had yet to come out about her sexuality because she felt that her parents and friends would hate her. Peggy does not believe that will happen, but doesn't know how her friend's family/friends well enough, so she will continue as secret keeper.
