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.

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

Good Story..

I think the narrator needed to have a stronger voice, to suit the characters personality - but a great book nonetheless
