Summary

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 her breathtaking young adult debut, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society in which perfection is paramount and flaws are punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In Celestine's society, perfection isn't just attainable, it's required; those found Flawed in some way are branded for life and ostracized from society. Celestine has never had any problems with the way things are run. She is a rule follower at her core and dating the son of the most powerful judge in the city. But a moment of compassion has dire consequences, and Celestine soon finds herself on trial before the whole city, accused of Flaws that will change her life forever. Ahern, a best-selling author of adult novels, turns to a young-adult audience with this interesting examination of human nature. The market is still flooded with utopian and dystopian societies, and this isn't quite as action-packed as some of the standouts. Still, readers hungry for the genre will be drawn in by the meticulous world building, the careful characterizations, and the interesting philosophical questions posed. A cliff-hanger ending raises the stakes considerably, promising an exciting return in the next volume.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "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.
