I received an advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.

by Cecelia Ahern

I was not prepared to love this book.  Flawed is written in the same vein as the Uglies or the Scarlet Letter.  There is a criminal court, and then there is the Flawed court.  The Flawed Court names crimes in your personality, in your demeanor, in your character.  If you are found guilty in the Flawed Court, you are branded as Flawed and must keep separate from the other non-Flawed in your community.  

Celestine is perfect; perfect looks, perfect grades and a perfect boyfriend. incident on the bus gets her in trouble, she's seen as supporting a Flawed.  And it will cost her everything she holds dear.

As Celestine goes through the trial, she realizes that the world is not black and white and that what seems to be perfect on the surface, just might not be.  As she is soon to learn "If you make a mistake, you learn from it.  If you never make a mistake, you're never the wiser."  Celestine has a lot to learn about what makes a person 'Flawed' and whether it is a good or bad thing.  I for one am cheering for her!
