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 in which 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 in which perfection is paramount and flaws are punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

Now on to the interview!

Hi Cecelia! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books! FLAWED looks absolutely fantastic and I can’t wait to read it! And am so happy that you could stop by for a visit!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about FLAWED and the characters?
Flawed is set in a society that doesn't tolerate imperfection. If you make a mistake, moral or ethical, then The Guild which is a morality court brands you Flawed. Your skin is branded with an F, you wear an armband on your sleeve so you can be identified and you become a second class citizen, living by different rules. Celestine North is a 17 year old young woman who strives for perfection but one day she makes a mistake, finds herself branded Flawed. She must find her feet in this new world that regards her as less than.

Do you have a title for book 2 yet?
It's called PERFECT and I love it! If in Flawed, Celestine is finding her feet, in Perfect she finds them! But her journey is certainly not any easier,  poor Celestine has a rough road ahead of her.

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?
Celestine's Granddad was inspired by my Granddad Con, Cornelius, who fought in the Irish Republican Army. He was a rebel who fought for Irish independence from Britain. 

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?
I have a crush on Carrick.

I think that Login Trilby is possibly a nastier piece of work than Judge Crevan. 

What is your favorite passage/scene in FLAWED?
The branding chamber where Celestine receives her brands is my favourite scene. It is probably the most powerful scene I have ever written. I was physically trembling when I wrote it and felt as though it was me sitting in the chair. People say to me "I cant believe you went there". I definitely went there.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend?
I have a total crush on Carrick but he's 18 a bit young for me. Jack Reacher. Or Will Trent. Will would be more loyal.

What inspired you to write YA?
The story came to me, announced itself to me in my head, all singing all dancing, guns blazing. I had no choice but to write it and it flowed out of me with passion and rage and so much heart. I wrote the first draft in 6 weeks. I had to get this story out of me or I couldn't go on!!
