Waiting on Wednesday (#80) - Faceless by Alyssa B. Sheinmel


Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

Faceless
Goodreads Summary: This emotionally gripping novel about a girl who gets a face transplant isWonder for a YA audience.

When Maisie gets into a terrible accident, her face is partially destroyed. She's lucky enough to get a face transplant--but how do you live your life when you can't even recognize yourself anymore?

She was a runner, a girlfriend, a good student...a normal girl. Now all that has changed. As Maisie discovers how much her looks did--and didn't--shape her relationship to the world, she has to redefine her own identity, and figure out what "lucky" really means.

From Alyssa Sheinmel, the acclaimed author of Second Star, this is a lyrical and gripping novel that will challenge readers to think about how we create and define ourselves.
Why I'm Waiting For It: I love reading books, especially contemporaries that have a message behind it. Faceless sounds intriguing and captivating and speaks volumes in terms of image and defining who we are in society today. In addition, the whole "surgery" trend currently has gone crazy, and I love how Sheinmel tackles on the idea of surgery and redefining who we are. Definitely excited for this one! 

Faceless by Alyssa B. Sheinmel hits shelves September 29, 2015 from Scholastic Press

  1. Wow! What a description! I don't know that I'd read something like this just because I don't like things that are heartbreaking and it sounds like this might be. I hope you really love it though! :D

  3. This sounds amazing! I always love when books have an actual message behind them rather than just being taken for face value (pun absolutely intended).
