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 in which 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.

this book had me gripped

This book had me gripped from the beginning. It gave me chills and was a harsh story. I couldn't stop thinking about this book when I was busy with other tasks. This story will live with me in my mind for a long time.

Love, Love, Love!!!

I was gripped the whole way through such a brilliant story definitely one of Cecelia's best. Only problem is I don't think I can wait a whole year for the sequel!!

Oh dear!

very disappointed with this book. I normally love Cecelia Ahern, but I really struggled with this & found the narrative annoying. 🙁

Great idea but...

I thought the ending was disappointing leaving too much unresolved and sorry but if I hear the phrase 'my heart was racing in my chest' once more I might scream 😊 otherwise really good concept

Just Completely Moved by both Author and Narrator

The story was amazing and I can't remember the last time I cried so much because of a story! The narrator was great as the way she told, it was like I was interviewing someone in the same room as me. I used to think listening to books was lazy but now I realise it is one of the most amazing ways to hear a story!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!!!!! Also I think I know where the video is 😁

A little disappointed

I feel like the basic storyline is great. However it’s a little slow and predictable in parts.

The ending was a big disappointment. Nothing was really resolved.

Thought provoking.

Loved it! Want more. Can't believe it ended when it did. Another Cecelia Ahern triumph.

Great story

Overall really enjoyed this book. A bit slow in places and couldn’t help being irritated by the way the narrator pronounced “says “ at the beginning however I appeared to get used to it.
Disappointed in the sudden and unexpected ending and had to keep rewinding to check that my device hadn’t skipped to the end and missed something!! 🤔
Can’t wait to start “perfect “now to find out what happens .
