After being attacked by a grizzly bear in the Rocky Mountains, seventeen-year-old Abby Hughes' facial scars are all she can think about, and all that she thinks anyone else can see when they look at her. It’s now March, and Abby’s months of hiding out at home are over. Returning to finish her last term of high school feels as daunting as enduring seven plastic surgeries. She knew it would be hard to show her new face to the world, but she didn’t expect to be rejected by her so-called friends. Or ignored by Liam, who had said he loved her. Or tormented by Mason, who may be capable of much worse than she suspected. If she wants others to move past the surface, Abby has to learn to do that herself. Her love of acting and her return to drama class may be the key to going on with her new life, or it may be the disaster that drives her from high school (and society) altogether.
