From Booklist:

Most teenage girls look in the mirror and see at least one thing they’d like to change. Katherine envies them. A horrible accident left a three-year-old Katherine severely burned and led to a childhood of operations and pain. Now she only wants to be a normal teenager, to date and hang out with her friends without living in the shadow of her scars. Will one more surgery finally make her happy and beautiful? Gervay, acclaimed Australian author of the Jack series, is recognized for her ability to highlight a tough issue, eliminating ignorance and leaving her readers with an unforgettable impression. Here it’s examining the pain, both physically and emotionally, that a burn victim carries for the rest of his or her life. How Katherine has to fight the continued difficulties from her accident to attain a life of normalcy is eye-opening. The dialogue is lyrical but at times unconvincing as a teenage voice. Despite that, Katherine’s journey—learning where contentment lies, and the truths she discovers—applies to us all. Grades 8-11. --Bethany Fort
