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. 

This is the first novel I´ve read written by Cecelia Ahern, it´s her Young Adult debut and I did enjoyed it.

The story unfolds in a country where the people morally defective is punished as it is expected to have a society that is morally perfect. Taking a bad decision, lying, being disloyal, get out of line with society, etc., if a person is found guilty of being defective or flawed in court, the person is marked with a hot iron with the letter F to indicate that he/she is flawed besides he or she lose certain "privileges" to live his/her faulty life. Besides this, to help or aid a flawed person is considered a crime which could result in jail.

Celestine is a 17-year-old girl that lives in this country and believes in the system, she's dating Art Crevan, the only son of Judge Crevan, the main judge of the Flawed court, a man feared by many, but to her he´s only Bosco, her neighbor and father of her boyfriend. Celestine is a smart girl with good grades, she follows all the rules, is very logical in her thinking and never interferes with the system until after a series of events that shake her life, then soon after she makes a mistake that could result with her being marked as flawed because in the system there isn´t second chances.

Flawed is a dystopian novel that takes place in a world where the morally defective citizens are branded with the letter F. The story is slow-paced but it get's interesting as the plot progress and it has a good ending.
