The book, Flawed by Ceceila Ahern was so thought provoking!
I really enjoyed reading this book! I couldn't stop reading, and I just wanted the book to go on and on, so it never had to finish. I do want to warn YA readers about some quite violent and distressing scenes in this book, which I was quite shocked about.
This reading was a roller coaster of emotions. I loved how strongly the characters are represented. There were many of Celestine's personality traits that made her a strong leader and main character. For example, how aware she became of the prejudice, discrimination and lack of respect for the human condition, and how open minded she was, questioning authority figures and what she's be told when growing up. Celestine is also, ready to change herself as she recognizes her own prejudices against people who are 'flawed', which I thought was brilliant.
The book, Flawed is about Celestine who's a young girl living in a place where everything must be perfect, where she must be perfect. Because no one wants to be flawed, no one wants to be...branded.
Celestine finds herself in a situation where her morals and compassion put her in a situation which that now deems her flawed and blurs the lines of what flawed means. If a person happens not to be perfect, then they will be branded with an 'F' for flawed. But isn't this concept like our real lives. Aren't we all under scrutiny to be 'perfect'?
