FLAWED Blog Tour + Giveaway!


Today I'm thrilled to be a part of the blog tour for Flawed, the young adult debut from P.S. I Love You author Cecelia Ahern! I'm a huge fan of dystopian stories, especially ones featuring strong young women, so I'm beyond excited to get my hands on a copy of this one. Also, P.S. I Love You made me sob like a little girl. SOB I TELL YOU!

As part of the tour, I get to share with you a quick little teaser quote to whet your appetite (fear not though, Flawed released yesterday so you can dive in immediately if you want!), but first here's a little more about Flawed:


You will be punished…

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 where 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.

In her breathtaking young adult debut, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society where perfection is paramount and flaws lead to punishment. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

And now, your teaser!

  16. What I like best is that this book discusses an issue that women of all ages have to deal with in their lives. I know we are not branded, but the issue of trying for perfection at all costs, which is not possible for humanity, is still a big one.

  17. I love there's a book focusing on "perfection." There are so many issues in today's society as a result of self-image. This might aid in putting those issues into perspective.
