The stunning YA debut from internationally bestselling author Cecelia Ahern.

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 in which 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 this stunning novel, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society in which perfection is paramount and mistakes are punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

From Publishers Weekly

14 March 2016 – In this futuristic series opener, adult author Ahern's first book for teens, the government has appointed a court to judge ethical and moral transgressions, searing an F into the skin of citizens deemed to be Flawed. Celestine North is a carefree teenager living in this rigid world of right and wrong, but after she comes to the aid of an elderly Flawed man, she becomes the unwitting poster child for a rebellion. Ahern's concept is solid, seeking to examine prejudice and abuse of power, but it suffers from a superficial treatment and a less-than-inspiring heroine; even after her ordeal, Celestine still acts helpless around her beloved, Art, and her cellmate, Carrick. Despite the story being told from Celestine's point of view, there's little hint of an internal struggle to understand or abide by the rules, creating an unrealistically rapid swing from self-proclaimed "perfect" girl to defiant martyr. Characters are neatly categorized as good or evil, and society's rules are laid out so bluntly, early on, that it feels like a primer, not a natural component of Celestine's narrative. Ages 12–up.

Customer Reviews

Good story

I enjoyed this far more than the marble collector. I know it is for young adults but I thought the moral of the tale was excellent for up and coming young people who need to think about compassion instead of "rules". I have read all of Celia Ahern's books and this has the key elements that I enjoy.

Great Book!

This had me on the edge of my seat, could not put it down. I can't wait for the next instalment!

A brilliant read

I definitely recommend reading this book to anyone that hasn't already. With a plot line that kept me guessing, wondering what choices would be made, this book kept me on my toes. There is some graphic and violent description, however nothing too extreme. Celestine is a character that I cannot wait to read more of, and I hope to see the next book soon.
