In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for “normal.” Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer
There is just something about kidnapping plots that call to me. I think one reason is because stories like this are heard in the news as much as in fiction novels. It makes them so real and creepy, plus I love to see what people do in those situations. I’ve also heard good things about Cheryl’s other books so I have high hopes for this one!
