Faceless

February 23, 2017


Hello lovelies,

My most recent read is a book called Faceless by Alyssa Sheinmel. This book is about a 16-year-old girl called Maisie from California who loves school, her friends, her boyfriend and running! One day she's out for her morning run when a storm approaches and she is involved in a freak accident where she receives burns to her face and left side. A month later she wakes up in hospital, covered in bandages with no recollection of what happened to her.

An electrical fire burnt all her face and part of her left torso. Maisie needs to decide whether she will go ahead with a face transplant, where someone elses nose and cheeks will be placed onto what's left of her face. But what will her boyfriend think? What will her friends think? Someone's face on her body! She struggles to come to a decision thinking she will look like a 'freak' whatever she does.

After going ahead with the transplant the book looks at how Maisie copes when it is time for her to go home and go back to school. It shows how her relationships with her friends and her boyfriend change and how she struggles to cope with her new pill regime. It's an amazing read showing how she overcomes all the hurdles her new face throw at her.

In short: I thought this book was an amazing read, if I wasn't sooo busy with uni work I would have finished this book within a day; 2 days tops. I thought the way the story was told was excellent.

My rating:

  1. Sounds worth reading. Love books that tackle issues like this - societies' outlook on people deemed different by no fault of their own. Going to put it in my amazon basket!
