“Flawed” is a YA novel, if you like Hunger games then I am sure that you will like this too.
You will be punished…
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 where 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 where perfection is paramount and flaws lead to punishment. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.
Cecelia Ahern shows us a world where the society is being judged for every “step into the wrong direction” by a group of people called Guild. If they found that the accused one is at fault he or she will be branded flawed. Once someone is branded as flawed, they have to live by different rules and their life isn’t same anymore.
Who can say what is wrong and what is right? Isn’t the line between them extremely thin?
The young Celestine North lives with her loving family and handsome boyfriend. She has great successes in high school and everyone likes her. Her life is perfect till the moment she decided to save someone elses life. Can saving another man’s life be a crime? Is it possible for a perfect girl to be flawed?
I couldn’t leave the book before reading the very last page. It’s flawless.
Well while I was reading it I was making parallels between it and The Hunger games. The main character is a girl who will become a symbol for revolution. She is in a love triangle, trying to choose between the boys she was raised with and the one she share her flawless destiny. Her enemy is the creator of the Guild, in Hunger games Katniss enemy was the creator of the games. I really enjoyed the book but while reading it I had always compared it with Hunger games. Just there seems to be similarities between the books.
Anyway, I just love the main idea of the book – that to be a human is to be flawed. Not being perfect isn’t something you can be blamed for. Everyone makes mistakes and we don’t have to be ashamed from them. It is easy to judge, it is hard to show compassion.
At the end we are perfect in our imperfections.
