Fame, beauty, and face transplants

Sara wants to be famous, and when legendary rock star Jonathon Heat offers to take her under his wing and pay for her cosmetic surgery, it's like a dream come true. But beauty comes with a hidden price tag. Is Sara willing to pay?

Annotation:
Extreme facial surgery, an unhealthy obsession with beauty, and drama make up this compelling young adult novel by Melvin Burgess, author of SMACK and DOING IT. Seventeen-year-old Sara Carter has a disfiguring scar on her face, and longs to become a beauty. When Jonathon Heat, a Michael Jacksonesque star, offers her a room in his home and access to his private surgeon, Dr. Kaye, Sara finds herself entering a disturbing world that could ensnare her forever.

Praise

"Burgess wraps his message about vanity and celebrity-obsessed culture in a nightmarish, unforgettable story." 2/19/2007

"Sara's meditations on fame, identity, masks, and the true nature of beauty will take this a step further than its sensationalistic plotline might seem to allow; in Sara, Burgess has created a character that is strangely unique and yet troublingly familiar." 6/1/2007
