Title: Flawed
   Author: Cecelia Ahern
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: April 5th, 2016

     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 obedience is paramount and rebellion is punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her-everything.

My Stance:

     Flawed is one of those books that can go one of two ways, really good or just another run of the mill books. While dystopia is a bit overcrowded, you have to hunt for a good book. Personally I think you are looking at a decent one. I am looking for the book to be more about how the girl just makes a split second decision and for some reason that means her life is completely altered.

     What I don't understand though, is how one simple action can brand you forever. I mean everyday we make decisions, and while there's not as many as drastic as what this book is going with. I am thinking more of you see a person on your walk into work, and a drunk driver is speeding toward them. I imagine most people would yell and try to get their attention. While some would run and try to save them. But all in all, we'd attempt to do something but it would all be the right thing to do. Not many people would keep walking and do absolutely nothing. To me, it's that decision that makes me wonder the validity of that decision the book is talking about.

     However, I think the general plot of the book is going to be overall good. It reminds me of the movie Hot Fuzz, where there's a group of people who are trying or want to dictate the agenda of everyone. The idea that just because one decision brands Celes forever as Flawed, there's something odd going on. However, if you make a decision and feel that it was the correct one, stand up for it. There are too many people that when they feel pressured after their decision they back down and think they are wrong. If you believe in what you did, than stand up and fight for it. Plus who does something that they don't believe in in the first place. Either way, I think it's going to be a book to keep your eye on.
