Faceless is an emotionally gripping novel about a girl who gets a face transplant — and has to rediscover her identity.

While on a run one day, Maisie gets into a terrible accident. A hot-burning electrical fire consumes her, destroying her face. Where her nose, cheeks, and chin used to be, now there is . . . nothing.

She is lucky enough to qualify for a face transplant. But with someone else's features staring back at her in the mirror, Maisie looks — and feels — like a stranger. The doctors promised that the transplant was her chance to live a normal life again, but nothing feels normal anymore. Before, she knew who she was — a regular girl who ran track and got good grades, who loved her boyfriend and her best friend. Now, she can't even recognize herself.

From New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Sheinmel, coauthor of The Haunting of Sunshine Girl, comes a gripping and gorgeously written tale of identity and love. This is a story of losing yourself, and the long, hard fight to find your way back.

If Chirag were here, he'd probably make a meticulous list of pros and cons, as though there is a correct and incorrect answer, like this decision is as straightforward as a math problem.I bite my chapped lips and try to imagine the answer we'd find at the end of his list.Surely we'd conclude that spending the rest of my life with someone else's face is better than spending it with no face at all.So I tell them yes.
