Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! How is your day going? Today I am going to be reviewing Flawed, a book that I found to be truly captivating and entertaining. I read this one a few days ago and I immediately knew that I had to write a review on it. I really hope you enjoy reading this.
“Sometimes what you’re afraid of losing is the very thing that will set you free”
Genre : Dystopian, YA
Publisher : HarperCollins
Publication date : 22 March 2016
Celestine North is your typical teen; she is a young, intelligent, beautiful girl living her life of what she considers to be “perfect”. The people in the society is divided into two distinct groups – the normal and the flawed. The flawed haven’t done anything illegal in their lives but have made bad decisions which caused them to be branded with a big red F. They are the ones who are looked down, mocked and harassed by others and they must live their lives under certain regulations. One day Celestine does the right thing in a wrong situation and she is brought to trial where it will be decided whether she will become one of them. Whatever happens, her life will be fully changed and she can never go back to being her usual self. She thought her parents could protect her, keep her safe but she soon realizes that her life is in her hands.
I loved reading this book as it portrayed a whole new world we are not familiar with. The extremely strict rules and regulations could most likely get anyone into trouble for even the slightest of mistakes. I really liked the character Celestine because of the undeniable determination and strong courage she showed during her toughest times. She stood up for what she believed and followed the path to what she knew was right.
There were some heart-breaking scenes in this book in which Celestine had endured unimaginable sufferings but this was what that had given her the strength to be brave and speak up later on.
Cecelia Ahern is one of my favourite authors and I have read many of her other books. This one is quite different from the others but I had enjoyed it just as much, if not more. This thought-provoking book managed to keep me engrossed from the first page till the very end. Flawed is a duology and the second book will be released on 30th March 2017. I can’t wait!!
Have you read this book? What were your thoughts on it?
I hope you enjoyed this post!
