While on a run one day, Maise 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, Maise 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 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.

      This is a book about how everything can go down the side of a cliff in an instant. Maisie Winters had an almost perfect life, her boyfriend Chirag had just asked her to prom, she was best on the track team, and she had friends who would do anything for her. Then, one morning on her run it started to rain. A bolt of lightning started an electrical fire, and Maisie woke up from her coma in a hospital a month later. She was horrified to discover that her face had been burnt off, and she would have to get a face transplant.
