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.
