What I'm Waiting On...

Title: Flawed
Series: Flawed
Author: Cecilia Ahern
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Publication Date: April 5, 2016
The Scarlet Letter meets Divergent in this thoughtful and thrilling novel by bestselling author Cecelia Ahern.

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 obedience is paramount and rebellion is punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her-everything.

Why I'm Waiting...

I'm not going to lie... I was sold at "The Scarlet Letter meets Divergent." Way back during my junior year of high school, we read The Scarlet Letter, and I was one of the only kids in the class who enjoyed it. I loved reading about how Hester was treated and ostracized. It was definitely one of my favorite assigned books. After I read the synopsis for Flawed, I knew this was a book that I wanted to read because this is the type of book I've always wanted someone to write (spoiler alert... I tried to write something like this and failed!). I can't wait to see how Celestine deals with everything thrown at her, and I'm sure that I'll be reading the rest of this series if I enjoy Flawed.

Now thanks to my good friend Emma, I won't have to wait very long to read this one because she sent me an ARC for Christmas! Check back soon for a review.

What Are You Waiting On...
