You 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.


Thank you Fierce Reads for the arc of Flawed. This in no way affected my opinion in my review.

I have not read a good dystopian in some time. This book was fantastic. I love the fact the story carries itself and did not need much romance to make it great. I am all about the romance in some books but in this case it felt more true to the story. 

Celestine has always seen everything as black and white. She follows all the rules of her society and even dates the judges son. She is one of the firmest believers in the judgement of the Flawed. Till one day a neighbor who she has known as a law abiding citizen is taken and deemed Flawed. This opens up Celestine's eyes to the society she lives in and nothing is the same. She can not un-see the things she is now seeing. 

This was the first book I have read by Cecelia Ahern but I am now a fan. This story was so incredible and strong. I can not wait for Perfect book 2 in this duology. If you are looking for a dystopian that will pull you in and has an original voice among so many out there then Flawed is a must read for you. I highly recommend this book and it is perfect for any age group.
