In a society where perfection is the rule you can't afford even one mistake.


Irish Writer

Themes: Dystopian stories/ Perfection
Celestine North is almost perfect – she has to leave that claim to her mother although she is certainly getting there. She is a model daughter, clever and well adjusted. But, Celestine is about to make a mistake and in a society where perfection is valued above all else, even one mistake can have devastating consequences. I really wanted to LOVE this book and I very nearly did except there is something just a little bland about it. However, it will be read and borrowed extensively and is about to be  made into a block busting movie like two of the writers earlier books.

Year 9 up/ Age 13 up
