Alyssa Sheinmel’s newest novel ‘Faceless’ has blown us away. We’re so eager to get you guys to pick it up and join us in discussing this beautiful book that we’ve got Alyssa herself to read you an excerpt and whet your appetite.
Here’s the lowdown on what ‘Faceless’ is all about:
When Maisie is struck by lightning, 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, after a single freak accident, 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.
Still not convinced? You better watch this then:
