Flawed (Flawed #1) - Cecelia Ahern 7.80   56

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.

Many will have heard of Cecelia Ahern, mainly thanks to her book-to-film P.S. I Love You. She's chosen to write a young adult dystopian series which, at first, I wasn't sure she'd be able to pull off as her forte is chick-lit and women's fiction. But she does a good job with the dystopian Flawed. Once you get past the flaws...Ahem.

The society is based on being perfect. Celestine has a sister, Juniper (an almost identical version of herself but a little older) and a younger brother Ewan. They come from a mixed race family. Cutter, their father is black, and Summer is white. A good premise to start. Slowly we learn how Celestine's mother is a model and regularly goes for nip/tucks or pick-me-ups if she's having a bad day. Early on in the story we learn that her mother dislocates her shoulders to do her own hair (what?) When I read this I thought of a far-out other dystopian called Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.
