Flawed; Cecelia Ahern

Flawed (Flawed, #1)Flawed by Cecelia Ahern
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While the dystopian genre might be played out, I know several teens who are looking for new versions. The world here might appeal in part because it's not a version of America (I'm guessing it's a future Scotland) and in part because it's less about adhering to a group or being physically perfect/forever young and more about following societal rules (a good follow-up would be Jordan's When She Woke).

Since this was an ARC, I'm hoping the cover artwork isn't final. Our heroine, Celestine, is the product of a mixed-race marriage and the artwork here doesn't show that as clearly as it might. Given the whole #weneeddiversebooks movement it seems like an easy choice to make.

ARC provided by publisher.
