I was excited to pick this book up from the Book Exchange Corner at a public library with no idea that it is meant for young adults.
Told from the point ofview of teenager Celestine North, a model daughter and student, this book has one message: nobody is perfect. To be human is to be flawed, and we should learn from each mistake so that is is not repeated.
The Flawed are regular citizens who have made moral or ethical mistakes. They are not imprisoned; they haven’t done anything illegal, but they have carried out acts that are seen as damaging to society. They still live among us, only ostracised, and not under separate rules.
