Perfect (Flawed #2) by Cecelia Ahern
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books
Goodreads Summary: 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, Celestine must make a choice: save just herself or to risk her life to save all Flawed people.
And, most important of all, can she prove that to be human in itself is to be Flawed?
Rating: 5 Stars
Review: Celestine North is a wanted fugitive. Hiding in plain sight no longer works when one day, Whistleblowers show up unexpectedly and Celestine is forced to go on the run for real. Trust no one is the only way she'll survive, but that doesn't stop the hurt that comes from being betrayed by those thought to have better intentions.
Perfect isn't a tale of perfection, or a story where the main characters get off scot free. Celestine must fight for what she believes in, and when she is offered the choice of freedom she must hear out all the conditions before deciding whether she should accept. We see a little more of Carrick and Art, both their stories are resolved in this book.
There's a great plot spurring on Perfect, but I miss the cut-throat action of Flawed which is why I didn't give this book five stars. Of course I loved the high points of Perfect, but sometimes the plot got really boring and that is the only thing I disliked about Perfect. Judge Crevan seems less villainous but perhaps he shouldn't be.
A romance that irons out all its creases in order to be happy, a future in the free world... What more could you ask of Cecelia Ahern? Perfect brings us a conclusion of sorts to this duo about a defiant girl who dared to go against everything her society stood for and takes a stand for what she believes in even when her life is at stake. Cecelia Ahern is known for beautiful words, and Perfect certainly isn't an exception.
