LoveReading View on Flawed

One of our Books of the Year 2016 Set in a society in which those deemed ‘flawed’ are branded and ostracised, Celia Ahern’s debut YA novel will talk directly to its readers. Every teenager wants to be perfect, to fit in and look like they know what they’re doing, so the thought of being marked as different, and more than that, as imperfect, out of step with everyone else, is terrifying. A moment of compassion leads Celestine to be accused of being Flawed. Former poster girl for the authoritarian government, she’s made an example to others, only to become a hero to the opposition. Raising interesting questions about society, and personal responsibility, and set against a convincing background of family, friends and first love, this will get young people reading and thinking. 

The Hunger Games books offer more thought-provoking dystopian adventures, as does Lois Lowry’s classic The Giver, or Jeannie Waudby’s recent One of Us~ Andrea Reece

A Piece of Passion from Nick Lake, Publishing Director: “Cecelia has a unique gift for creating stories that hook the reader in, and Flawed grabs from the first page. Beautifully realised, tender and thought-provoking, this is a book that makes you care – about Celestine, about fairness, about freedom. The only flaw is having to wait for the second book…”
