Goodreads Description:
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.


At first the story was boring, like... the first 3/4ths of it.. maybe 1/2 of it was just like come on, get to the conspiracy and the exciting parts but when things start to get exciting, it also made you pull parallels
For me, it was parallels of racism
I don't know if that is the way Cecelia meant it but if she did, damn what a genius
Pulled some hardcore stuff right there
As always, the main character doesn't know the power that she has and refuses to believe it that she has the power to bring everything down and all that mostly typical stuff which isn't bad but I mean... We've seen it
Cecelia, like I said, just did a great job and showing just how badly these people are treated though, mainly, the biggest moment for me in it was a scene towards the end in a supermarket. That was just like
WOAH
Damn good scene
I have read Cecelia's books in the past and she always tends to write emotionally powerful stuff and this is one of them
The reason this book didn't get a higher grade from me though is because as I said, it took a while for it to pick up , it was kinda boring for me at first.
Oh and funny thing about this book
I checked it out from the library and as I was getting read to start reading the book, a tattoo fell out from it, the F symbol from the cover and I was like WTF?! :D Turns out these books come with it and since I was the first person to check out the book from the library, I got the tattoo xD So yay for that
Recommend it?
Ehh,.. If you're a fan of The Program this could be right up your alley

Overall, I gave the book 3/5 stars.
