The BRC book group will be discussing Cecelia Ahern’s young adult dystopian novel, Flawed.  Ahern is best known for the very successful book and film, P.S. I love you, but this is her first book for young adults.

Flawed is set in a society where perfection is valued above humanity. Good-girl Celestine has always agreed with the system, but following an act of kindness towards one of the “Flawed” is herself excluded and soon she is fighting for her own survival. We will be meeting on Wednesday 8th March from 12-1pm in St Michael’s F3.  Looking forward to hearing what you all think, but if you can’t make the meeting then please let us know what you think of the book.

  1. We all thought this book was gripping and a great concept for a story. As with any dystopian novel, it was believable and there were hints of segregation and the holocaust which made us think how easily society can become cruel.
    The sequel “Perfect” is coming out very soon and we’re all looking forward to reading it.
    The consensus for this book was 7.5/10

  2. Thoughts from Aileen Arthur “Overall, I found ‘Flawed’ to be a page turner. I thought the concept of policing morality was clever and interesting. It seems that criminals are far better off than people found guilty of being Flawed. The description of Celestine being branded was so harrowing that it stayed with me for a long time. Further on, the events surrounding the ‘party invitation’ were so cruel and heartbreaking. Towards the end of the book I was disappointed when I realised there would be no conclusion and I would have to wait for the next book (or more if part of a series). Something I would liked to have known before I started the book. I think the target audience (YA) will love this book. I give this book 7.5 out of 10.”
