Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"Faceless is gorgeous and wrenching, full of gigantic questions and even more gigantic answers about love, identity and appearance. I’m sure I’ll reread it many times, as I do with my favorites. It is a vivid, compelling, beautiful, immediate novel, and Alyssa Sheinmel’s writing is so true, her characters so real, that they live on long after the last page is turned.” Luanne Rice, New York Times bestselling author
