A strong YA novel. Students will love the page-turning tale of Maisie and how she faces a life-altering accident. ( )

I recommend everyone reading this book to read the article the author mentioned in the acknowledgements. Raffi Khatchadourian wore a fascinating and detailed article in the February 2012 "New Yorker" about a man who received a full face transplant as well covering the history of transplants and a few other successful and unsuccessful cases. I ended up reading the article after reading a few chapters of the book and saw that the article greatly influenced the book. One thing that the article covers in greater depth than the book is the great risk inherent in any transplant. The book does address it but does not include the fact that no one with a face transplant has survived longer than ten years or so. Also one of the doctors quoted in the article said that the patients are made aware that death is a real possibility, not just a slight risk. It's an interesting dilemma- live life with missing all or part of your face, not having sensation and the risks and pain involved with multiple skin grafts and surgeries, or a transplant that improves appearance but is still not "normal" but possibly regain sensation, but have to take pills the rest of your life that have serious side effects on your daily functioning and also no guarantee on how long the transplant might last or if compilations might end your life. I really don't know what I'd choose and I hope I never have to find out. ( )

I loved this book in the same way I loved The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen, and really, the stories are very similar. Maisie suffers from a terrible accident at the beginning of the story, losing the majority of her face in a fire. After a face transplant, she has to come to terms with the loss of her old self and accept who she is now.

She faces a long journey, but it is a journey that is very satisfying and inspirational to read about. I found myself in tears as she comes to accept herself and realize that, while something very terrible happened to her, it does not have to be the thing that defines her.

I loved this book and give it five very enthusiastic stars. A definite must-read with a great message about accepting yourself for your flaws and learning that life is what you make it. ( )

This was a fascinating read about a teenage girl who had to have a face transplant after a freak accident, and it was clearly obvious that the author had put a huge amount of research into the topic before writing this novel. Although I found Maise's physical and emotional journey compelling as she battled with loss, grief and finally acceptance, I didn't really like her; I preferred Maisie's friends - Serena, Chirag and Adam. I also found the plot a bit slow and I was never really emotionally connected with the book. However, I do think "Faceless" was a worthwhile read as I learnt quite a bit about face transplants. ( )
