SynopsisYou will be punished…
Celestine North lives a perfect life. She’s a model daughter and sister, she’s well-liked by her classmates and teachers, and she’s dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan.
But then Celestine encounters a situation where she makes an instinctive decision. She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions. She could be imprisoned. She could be branded. She could be found flawed.
In her breathtaking young adult debut, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society where perfection is paramount and flaws lead to punishment. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.
Nicola Reads YA: 3.5 stars.
"Flawed has a lot of elements that are similar to other dystopian books (a main character who hasn't questioned the rules up until now, a villainous government figure, a resistance) but there are some twists which keep it interesting. There is a tendency for over-description and the main character, Celestine, takes a long time to figure things out sometimes." Read full review (Click Here).
Sarah Elizabeth's Bookshelf: 4 stars.
"The storyline in this was pretty good, although it did remind me of other books that I had read in places. I thought the idea of branding people as ‘flawed’ was interesting, but the system did seem a little open to interpretation, which is kind-of what was happening in the story anyway."
