Book Blurb –

Celestine North lives in a society that demands perfection. After being branded Flawed, Celestine’s life has completely fractured – all her freedoms gone.

Since Judge Crevan has declared her the number-one threat to the public, she has been on te run with the complicated, powerfully attractive Carrick, the only person she can trust. But Celestine has a secret – one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to the ground.

Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine. With tensions building Celestine must made a choice: save only herself, or risk her life to save all the Flawed…

My Thoughts –

Last year I was given a copy of Flawed by Cecelia Ahern by HarperCollins for an honest review. I had totally forgotten about that amazing book and when I walked into my local Dymocks I saw this amazing covered book with an iridescent ‘F’ printed through the picture and I ran to it. I immediately remembered reading Flawed and remembered that there was another book to the series and this was it. I love buying a book and not knowing what it is going to be about. I knew before opening that I was going to love it, because I loved the first one to death.

This is the second book of the series, although I’m not sure if there is going to be anymore after this one. I hope there is but it kind of feels like the story has come to a finish. If you have read Flawed than you are going to love this book. If you haven’t read Flawed then go out there and get a copy straight away because it is like a mix between The Hunger Games and Divergent although there isn’t that much ass kicking but a lot more awesome verbal gut kicking.

The book carries on straight after the first one finished. Celestine is on the run, the judge, who is the father of her boyfriend is looking for her because he knows what he has done to her and that it was wrong, and the guy that helped Celestine in her problem is still giving her the feels and helping her out. With trouble following all her moves and a trail of destruction can only lead to an inevitable capture, Celestine continues to find a way to destroy her government whilst protecting the people she loves.

“My eyes meet with the other Flawed men and women. What can we do? Have we stopped seeing one another? They look as powerless as me, as though they’ve given up: some heads down so love, they’re tripping up when the person in front of them slows: some with their heads so high they’re defiant. Others crying. Others showing nothing, unreadable. Living the moment until it’s over. Putting up with it” page 312.

With a lot of running and brain storming, with the introduction of a lot of new people and problems, there is a lot that happens in this book. A lot is also resolved in the book and ends. Celestine’s kick arse attitude is remarkable and a girl to look up to. Her kick arseness is inspiring and very encouraging for not only the characters in the books but also the readers too. A fantastic read, with great writing, awesome world building and best out come at the end of the story ever.

If you liked the first book Flawed or like a dystopian young adult book with unruly teenagers taking charge and fixing the world, then this is the book for you.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 Booky Stars!
