"The Giver meets Uglies in this intricately crafted world where any mention of looks is considered 'superficial' and children are kept from seeing their own faces. Christina Collins delivers a fast-paced, imaginative, and thoughtful tale that is destined to be the next beloved dystopian novel. Readers will race through it, eager to discover the fate of the endearing Zailey, and they will end it brimming with new questions to ponder about the drawbacks and power of appearance in our society." -- Brigit Young, author of The Prettiest
"A captivating reflection of how we see ourselves and others. Readers simply won't be able to look away." -- Abby Cooper, author of Sticks & Stones
"Immensely intriguing... sure to spark consideration of body image, beauty concepts, and what truly defines an individual" -- Booklist
"Collins (After Zero) engages in a thoughtful psychological examination of how people view themselves and their bodies, touching briefly on body dysmorphia and disordered eating, and succeeds in creating a chilling vibe." -- Publishers Weekly
