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.

Alyssa Sheinmel was born in Stanford, CA, but has lived in New York ever since she was six. She is the author of The Lucky Kind, The Beautiful Between, The Stone Girl, and Second Star. Learn more at alyssasheinmel.com.
