Six women forever joined by a little cafe in Kabul

Sunny, former proprietor of the Little Coffee Shop and new owner of the Screaming Peacock vineyard. Can she handle the challenges of life on her own?

Yasmina, the young mother who now runs the cafe, until a terrifying event strikes at the heart of her family and business…

Layla and Kat
Afghan teenagers in America, struggling to make sense of their place in the world…

Zara, about to be forced into a marriage which will have devastating consequences…

These women are about to learn what Halajan, Yazmina’s rebellious mother-in-law, has known all along: when the world as you know it disappears, you find a new way to live.

If you enjoyed The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul , you are in for a treat with this sequel.

I loved this story, which is full of truly inspirational characters who are all main characters. Normally when I am reading a book I am drawn to one character who I favour over the other characters but not with this story. I loved all the characters and the story behind them.

This story makes you open your eyes about what is going in on the world and how poor innocent people are suffering yet get judged by their culture. There are lots of interestingly true proverbs in this story.

Deborah Rodriguez is a fantastic author who writes from experience and a very friendly lady who always makes time for her fans on social media.

Flawed by Cecelia Ahern

image

The stunning YA debut from internationally 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 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 this stunning novel, bestselling author Cecelia Ahern depicts a society in which perfection is paramount and mistakes are punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

Wow what a story !!!

This story is along the line of The Hunger Games but better – much better because it’s more realistic.

The main character Celestine North is such a strong, independent girl who stands ups for what she believes in- Rosa Parks comes to mind when I think of Celestine. The character Crevan reminds me of the Volturi from Twilight, that is who I pictured when reading Flawed.

I was hooked to this story, it fascinated me and I actually believe that criminals in the real world should be Flawed and branded, it would be a good punishment for them.

Cecelia Ahern has excelled herself with this story, there were so many wise words and quotes within this story, one quote stays with me ‘If you never make a mistake, you’re never the wiser.’ I am always trying to teach this to my children – that it is okay to make mistakes in life, it’s how we learn.

This story has so much potential, that I can see a whole series of Flawed books (I really hope so), I also really hope that this story is turned into a film , it would be a fantastic award winning one.

Well Done Cecelia Ahern .
