This is book number 1 in the Flawed series.
In her breathtaking young adult debut, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society in Flawed in which obedience is paramount and rebellion is punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.
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.
"Readers will be captivated and unable to put the book down, haunted at how possible it is for the masses to be controlled, manipulated, and led to allow evil to thrive; how flawed humanity is and how quick humans are to turn their backs on each other; how courageous it is to look inside oneself, take a stand, and do what it is right, even at great cost to oneself. . . Consider this a must-have purchase for all young adult collections."--VOYA, starred review
". . . a compelling thriller that’s very hard to put down. The cliff-hanger ending guarantees readers will be waiting impatiently for the next book in the series."--School Library Journal
"Sharp and entertaining. I had a knot in my gut reading it."--Roddy Doyle
