Summary

This emotionally gripping novel about a girl who gets a face transplant is Wonder 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 listeners to think about how we create and define ourselves.

Grows on you

It took me a while to get into it, but once 'in' it was worth persisting with. All the characters show development that feels natural, even those whom are annoying throughout most of it ([cough] boyfriend [cough]).

The subject and the way it is handled has been done excellently, and Alyssa should be proud of bringing it to life for the audience as she has.

So Good.

I love it. It was one of the best books I have ever read. It is up there with Harry Potter.
Have a great day!
