9781910655191: Faceless

Faceless is an emotionally gripping novel about a girl who gets a face transplant -- and has to rediscover her identity.

While on a run one day, Maise gets into a terrible accident. A hot-burning electrical fire consumes her, destroying her face. Where her nose, cheeks, and chin used to be, now there is . . . nothing.

She is lucky enough to qualify for a face transplant. But with someone else's features staring back at her in the mirror, Maise looks -- and feels -- like a stranger. The doctors promised that the transplant was her chance to live a normal life again, but nothing feels normal anymore. Before, she knew who she was -- a regular girl who ran track and got good grades, who loved her boyfriend and her best friend. Now, she can't even recognize herself.

From Alyssa Sheinmel, the acclaimed author of Second Star, comes a gripping and gorgeously written tale of identity and love. This is a story of losing yourself, and the long, hard fight to find your way back.

About the Author:

Alyssa Sheinmel is the bestselling author of several novels for young adults including Faceless and Second Star. She is the co-author of the New York Times bestselling novel The Haunting of Sunshine Girl and its sequel, The Awakening of Sunshine Girl. Bestselling author Luanne Rice called Faceless “gorgeous and wrenching... a vivid, compelling, beautiful, immediate novel. Bestselling author Anna Godbersen wrote that Second Star is “gorgeous: at once sun-soaked and haunted, elegant and strange...perfect.”

Review:

Faceless is gorgeous and wrenching, full of gigantic questions and even more gigantic answers about love, identity and appearance. I'm sure I'll reread it many times, as I do with my favorites. It is a vivid, compelling, beautiful, immediate novel, and Alyssa Sheinmel's writing is so true, her characters so real, that they live on long after the last page is turned. -- New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice

[Sheinmel's] depiction of a disfigured adolescent girl,already searching for herself and now suddenly forced to accept this newenormity, is compelling...absorbing. -- Kirkus Reviews

Fascinating... Maisie's struggle is certainly one that not many teens will have to face, but teens will identify with her struggle to accept that her old life is gone forever.  The anger and grief that she feels is palpable and vividly expressed.  Fans of R. J.Palacio's Wonder will also enjoy thisbook and relate to its similar theme about how phpalpableysical appearance does notdefine who you really are. -- VOYA

A fascinating human portrait of a unique medical procedure,this work paints a complex picture of a young life impacted by a mammoth change. Maisie is a deeply sympathetic and human character despite the outrageous circumstances....Give this to fans of Trisha Leaver's The Secrets We Keep and other readersready for an all-too-gritty piece of realistic fiction. -- School Library Journal

Compelling...Maisie's emotional torment is authentically conveyed. -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Sheinmel's prose is accessible to a wide range of readers who, for whatever reason, find themselves struggling with differences.  A touching reminder that real change is rarely skin deep. -- Booklist Online

"Faceless is gorgeous and wrenching, full of gigantic questions and even more gigantic answers about love, identity and appearance. I'm sure I'll reread it many times, as I do with my favorites. It is a vivid, compelling, beautiful, immediate novel, and Alyssa Sheinmel's writing is so true, her characters so real, that they live on long after the last page is turned." -- New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice
