FACELESS, by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

faceless

The story: Maisie expected to be going to prom–not to end up in the hospital when burns from a freak fire destroy most of the lower half of her face. When the chance to have a full face transplant becomes available, she moves forward with it, but she never expected how difficult it would be to live in someone else’s skin. Everyone’s looking at her; she even feels like a freak to herself. How can she ever hope to move back to living a normal life?

The library lady says: Here’s one for girls who like to immerse themselves in other people’s difficulties.  It’s not easy reading, though–probably better for 8th grade and up.
