Overview

Carmen Polychronopoulos is a national merit scholar and a highly exceptional high school senior, but she has a terrible secret. Elliot Sharples is the young, disfigured custodian who adores her. Together they suspend the reader into a bittersweet, beauty-and-the-beast tale riddled with tragedy, hope, and inspiration.

Carmen, who has been labeled “the ice queen” by her classmates, is a shy, introverted seventeen-year-old who has been abused by her widowed father for years. Elliot is a burn survivor who, despite many surgeries to his head and neck, is still far from having his old face back. Carmen and Elliot are two bruised and broken people who find one another and take comfort there, mustering the kind of strength together that they would never have as individuals. Elliot devises a plan to take Carmen away from the miserable life she has had to live, and her very survival depends on the plan’s success.

This story is a roller coaster ride of emotions that culminate in a way that’s shocking, and at the same time very believable. No matter what, love is worth fighting for every step of the way. Read on and you’ll see.

Meet the Author

B. A. was born in Bridgeton, New Jersey and on a Friday the thirteenth for those who spook easily. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1981 with a bachelor’s degree in Natural Science, and with clusters in sociology, writing, and advanced writing courses. In 1987 she graduated from Fairleigh S. Dickinson Jr. College of Dental Medicine with a doctorate in general dentistry. Regardless of the paths that she has taken academically, B. A. has always continued to write. Her first books were written while she was in the seventh grade. Using classmates as characters seemed to put the books in high demand, and even as adults, those friends still ask to read them. By the ninth grade, she’d completed her first novel and although it was pretty bad, she was—and still is—extremely proud of that accomplishment. B. A. writes general fiction, mysteries, and historical fiction. Regardless of what else she has done in her life or how much the practice has been discouraged, writing has always been and always will be the center of her life. B.A. has been married since 1983 and has two children, a son and a daughter, and an aging cat named Salem. She first moved to Michigan in 1988. Her hobbies include hiking, kayaking, exercising on her beloved elliptical trainer, painting with oils, healthy cooking and baking, researching topics for stories, and being proud of her children’s many and varied accomplishments. She loves listening to any kind of music, especially if the lyrics are terrific, and learning as much as she can about people—their mannerisms, the way they speak, what they do, and why they do it. And she also loves watching western television series, especially those from the fifties and sixties. Her favorites are the early Gunsmoke episodes with Chester Goode in them, and that special father-son bond found in The Rifleman. The pilot for Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman is one of the most credible depictions of the nineteenth century American west that she has ever seen on celluloid, and several grimly realistic episodes from the first and second seasons are favorites of hers. And lately, Hell on Wheels is more than enough to satisfy her taste for the wild west.
