An intensely powerful account of a teen, bullied for her port-wine stain, who must summon her personal strength to survive abduction and horrific abuse at the hands of a deranged killer

Sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for “normal.” Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, she has been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust all her life. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.
