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 ofSecond Star, this is a lyrical and gripping novel that will challenge readers to think about how we create and define ourselves.

I don't know if Alyssa Sheinmel has wrote other books, but I was astounded at this one. Sheinmel brilliantly explained what it would be like to look in the mirror and see a reflection that wasn't yours. I believe this would be an excellent movie.

Maisie is a normal girl finishing high school before half of her face gets melted off in an electrical fire. Maisie is lucky enough to qualify for a face transplant, but she doesn't feel so lucky. This is a story about losing yourself and the hard journey you fight to get yourself back.
