Flawed

Flawed - Cecelia Ahern See how easy it may be to cross from Perfection to Flawedness. See how incidious the ideas of perfection can be. See how dangerous perfectionism is.

The concept is slightly reminding of the Nataniel Hawthorne's A-letter, only taken to new abysmal heights.

Q:
When I step outside, I see Colleen standing at her family’s car. The front door of her house is open, and she looks like she’s waiting. I guess she won’t be going to school today, probably going to the courthouse to her mom’s trial. My heart beats wildly as I try to figure out what to do. If I say hello, I might get in trouble. Anybody could see me speaking to her from their home, and I could be reported. What if Bosco sees me from one of the windows of his monstrous mansion or as he leaves for work? Saying hi may be seen as disloyalty toward the Guild, as support for Colleen and her mom. Would that be seen as aiding and assisting a Flawed? I don’t want to go to prison. But if I ignore her, it will be rude. It is Colleen’s mother who’s Flawed, not her. She looks over at me and I can’t do it. I look away quickly.

Q:
I excelled in school—I adore information and am always hungry to know more. I read books, I watch documentaries, my favorite subject is math, and I hope to study it at the city university when I finish school this year. My aim is to win the Fields Medal, the International Medal for Outstanding Discoveries in Mathematics, viewed as the greatest honor a mathematician can receive, like a math Nobel Prize. You have to be under forty to win it. I’m seventeen. There’s time.

Q:
“Euthanasia is frowned upon by our society,” she says, defending the Guild’s ruling on Angelina Tinder.
“So is compassion. I helped an old man to a seat.”
