TIENES QUE LEER ESTA NOVELA S O S Faceless es una novela juvenil contempor nea que empec a leer sin saber qu esperarme y que sin duda ha sido de las mejores lecturas que he hecho este a o y, probablemente, en mi vida Una novela que trata sobre la autosuperaci n, la superficialidad, los c nones de belleza y la fuerza Sin duda sumamente recomendable.Me parece fascinante que la mitad de la novela se desarrolle en el hospital en el que nuestra protagonista recibe un trasplante de cara Primero porque [...]
Imagine waking up to realize an electrical fire has melted off half of your face and you ve spent the past several weeks in an induced coma due to the severity of your injuries Pretty heavy stuff for anyone to deal with, much less a teenage girl in high school.Faceless is a fictional, young adult novel written by Alyssa B Sheinmel One thing I liked about this book is it didn t spend a lot of time building up the pre story got right to it The story setup reminded me a bit of If I Stay in the sens [...]
A book about loving yourself again I m almost certain my eyes lived in pools of tears through this whole book If it wasn t sad, it was the happy kind of sad However, I also cry at commercial s that show compassion so most likely you won t cry as much as I did Normally as a reader I shy away from any book that is sad but I don t think you should shy away from this book It was very touching and left a mark that I want to keep with me I ve only heard of a face transplant in passing before and when [...]
Questo decisamente un libro che fa riflettere e che a tratti anche capace di farti vergognare perch ammettiamolo, quando vediamo una persona deforme per strada non possiamo fare a meno di guardarla, ma vedermi dagli occhi di Maisie e leggere di come si sentisse uno spettacolo da baraccone mi ha fatta vergognare parecchio.All inizio i pensieri di Maisie erano talmente depressi e ripetitivi che mi era venuta voglia di saltare qualche paragrafo ma sono contenta di aver proseguito leggendo tutto, an [...]
I finished this book in almost one sitting This book is just so good I cried a lot, sad tears, happy tears I m so emotionally attached to Maisie and her family Maisie is a great character, full of sarcasm and quirky I laughed out loud a lot of her jokes and I sorta understand why Maisie is so angry at the first, and I also knew that her parents are concerned about her than she can imagined Chirag is a very nice guy too, I mean he actually sacrificed a lot to accept her even though he knew that [...]

This and other reviews can be found on princessicaofbooks.wordpress Thank you to for sending me an ARC for reviewing purposes This in no way has impacted my review I was really intrigued by this story I had yet to read a face transplant story I ve read a handful of prosthetic stories but not a face transplant It seemed pretty extreme, which was probably the reason I wanted to read it in the first place.First of all, Faceless was quite a quick read Maisie, the main character, talks in a very simp [...]
Temevo questo libro.Temevo di sciogliermi in lacrime, avevo paura che, avendo come protagonista un adolescente, con lo scorrere delle pagine, il nucleo del romanzo si sarebbe perso Insomma avevo paura del clich che sta in agguato nella maggior parte di ogni libro YANIENTE DI PI SBAGLIATO a parte la questione delle lacrime, ovviamente Questo libro bellissimo Questa la storia di Maisie, una 16enne come tante, carina, simpatica, intelligente, preparata Eccelle nella corsa, ha una migliore amica un [...]
You have to learn to love yourself before you can love someone else Because it s only when we love ourselves that we feel worthy of someone else s love Imagine waking up and getting that half of your face was destroyed That you re going to get a face transplant and that you re never going to look like your old self again The topic of the book is extremely heavy and it will most likely make you cry at certain points yet it was a very quick read Maise s thoughts and the way they ve been written ar [...]
This was the best book that I ve read I got so engaged to it and is one of my favorite book.
I was right, this is a new favorite of mine I loved every single page, I cried multiple times, Maisie s best friend felt like my best friend, I fell in love with her boyfriend, I fell out of love with her boyfriend And most of all I felt her pain.This was an incredible read, one that I m happy I got to experience It ended really really well, with so much hope for the future and I think that s what I loved most The hope this book gave me in such a hard and sometimes painful world.
Parlare dei libri che amo per me non mai semplice, perch temo di non riuscire a rendere loro la giustizia che meritano Nel mio piccolo prover a descrivere le emozioni che la storia di Maisie mi ha suscitato Provate a guardarvi allo specchio, a toccare le vostre guance, il vostro mento o il vostro naso Fatto Bene Adesso provate a immaginarvi senza queste parti essenziali di voi stessi, senza queste parti che definiscono il vostro volto, le vostre espressioni, il vostro percorso di crescita Mentre [...]
So Faceless kind of placed top rung on the body issues YA sub genre Woosh Normally these books are about anything ranging from a certain disability or disease blind, deaf, wheelchair bound to mental health issues depression, schizophrenia to body dismorphia I always file those away in my brain, in case a customer desperately needs a recommendiation for their niece who suffers from anorexia and they need a book they can identify with Well, I ve found the perfect book in case someone needs a recom [...]
What I loved most about this book was that it s main message was Love Yourself Maisie has a terrible accident and as a result, has to have a face transplant She has to deal with having someone else s nose, chin, cheeks and her own massive scars She literally isn t the same person on the outside But I enjoyed Maisie figuring our her new face and new life, surrounded by people who supported her, or would learn to I was weary about any romance Maisie had a boyfriend before her accident that seemed [...]
Proprio come dice il titolo questo libro davvero bello E un romanzo forte, che fa riflettere Un romanzo che parla di quanto sia importante non solo accettarsi e amarsi ma anche andare avanti, non lasciarsi abbattere da ci che ci succede Smetterla di guardare al passato e pensare al futuro Crescere.Sentirsi fortunati per quello che si ha e non per quello che ci manca.Ammetto che mi ha reso un po triste in alcune parti e mi scesa anche la lacrimuccia su una determinata frase.Recensione completa su [...]
I would like to start this review off with a little dare Yes I know that may be a little unconventional in a book review but seriously, I dare you all to read the synopsis for Faceless and then tell me that you don t totally want to read it When I was first sent the information for this book with the possibility to review it I quickly read the synopsis and then gasped Then I read it again, a bit slower the second time, after that I couldn t click the little button fast enough to sign up, saying [...]
The unthinkable happens how do you cope How do your family, friends, boyfriend cope This Young Adult story will hit a nerve with any adult as well as teenager who has seen someone who looks a little different and reacts in a way they later feel guilty about After all a burnt face is just a burnt face The same person is still underneath.School athlete Maisie has a fairly ordinary life track practice, a caring boyfriend, college applications, fighting parents Nothing will feel the same after the m [...]

E finalmente trovo la voglia di concludere questa recensione Non pensate male, il libro mi piaciuto, ma ormai il mio cervello ha fatto la muffa nel vero senso della parola XD Spero solo di ricordarmi quello che volevo scrivere Comunque Una volta finito questo romanzo ho provato una sorta d insoddisfazione, come se ci fossero ancora molte questioni lasciate in sospeso S , la reazione stata tutto qui Beautiful un buon libro, eppure ha qualche mancanza Ma tirate un sospiro, perch c una spiegazione [...]
Recensione presente sul sito reginlaradiosa Non sar pi come prima Nessun trucco mi trasformer nella bella ragazza di prima, nonostante la pelle chiara, le lentiggini e il naso grande che odiavo Ma so chi sono Sono una ragazza con la lingua tagliente e un senso dell umorismo sarcastico sono una ragazza che si innamorata per la prima volta a sedici anni, che ha la stessa migliore amica da quando ha cinque anni, che litiga con la mamma che fiera di amare e che ha un padre che ogni sera le cantava u [...]
Maisie is in a terrible accident whilst running Lightening struck a tree, and caused a branch to fall, pulling some electric wires down with it, which burnt Maisie Her left side of her body taking damage, but her face took the most Her left cheek, her nose, and most of her chin are gone, the tissue so badly damaged that it was killed in the fire, a fire so hot it burned blue.When I first heard about Faceless, the synopsis had me wanting to know what this book was all about, how could you read it [...]
Warning I have SPOILERS in my review.I am yet again choosing another emotional book to read I will admit that I have no regrets from choosing this book You may have to grab tissues before you start reading this book, because there were quite a few spots where I was tearing up Sheinmel knows how to tug at your heart strings I love reading these types of stories, because like I have said before, they give you some knowledge of how you should act if put in these situations How the person with the i [...]
