Flawed by Cecilia Ahern

In a society where people get punished for making moral and ethical bad decisions, Celestine thinks she is perfect. With a perfect boyfriend and a perfect family, she will never be Flawed. Until she is...

So, let's start with the cover. It was kind of pinky, and really not my style. It could have been a better cover as, even though your not meant to,any people DO judge books by there covers. Due to social pressures, boys don't really want to be seen reading a book with a pink cover, meaning the book is more likely to be read by girls. It was definitely a unisex book, and so lots of boys not reading it is a bad thing. Ok, onto the plot. I thought that the idea of a world where people who aren't perfect are punished was great. I also liked the fact that it wasn't against the law, as that made arguments against the idea valid. Unfortunately, I can't comment on the entire plot, as it is a series, where the second book hasn't come out. I can't wait for it to come out, though. The only thing about the plot that I didn't get was the bit about Celestine with Art. I didn't feel that it enriched the story. Now for the actual writing. It was really believable, and I liked the fact that it was in first person, it wouldn't have worked otherwise. I think my favourite price of writing in the book is the countdown after the branding, when it is portrayed in a diary style. So, in conclusion, it's a very good book, with only one problem (Art, the boyfriend)

I am going to give it a 9/10
And and age rating of 12+
