Praise
"Burgess wraps his message about vanity and celebrity-obsessed culture in a nightmarish, unforgettable story."
"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."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note Wanting nothing more than to be famous, Sara happily accepts the offer of guidance from rock star Jonathan Heat, but when he offers to pay for her plastic surgery, Sara has to consider his generosity and his proposition for repayment very carefully. Reprint.
