Perfect - by Cecelia Ahern

This is the second and final book in the Flawed dystopian series. I call this book YA light. Like most YA books, the story deals with some kind of social issues. I call it light YA because of the ideas of what it means to be 'perfect' or 'flawed' and what it is to be human can be relatable to most teens without being preachy or overly deep. The book was a fast and easy read and finishes up the two-book series nicely. The books book starts almost where the first book left off and is also told from Celestine's point of view. One thing I would have liked to see more of (from both books) is more dialogue and interaction with other characters. So much of the book is from Celestine's thoughts and not so much from natural dialogue and interaction with other characters. It takes away from some of the build up and leaves little "action." The ending is also predictable. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing if you enjoy the journey getting there.




From the books blurb:

In Cecelia Ahern's thrilling sequel to Flawed, Celestine must make a choice: save just herself or risk her own life to save all Flawed people.

Celestine North lives in a society that demands perfection. After she was branded Flawed by a morality court, 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 a ghost, on the run with Carrick--the only person she can trust.

But Celestine has a secret--one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to the ground. A secret that has already caused countless people to go missing.

Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine. With tensions building, can she prove that to be human in itself is to be Flawed?


I received an advance copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
