Teen Book Club
Face
by Benjamin Zephaniah
Buy book: $10.69

Martin is a good-looking, self-assured boy who accepts a ride home from a drunken acquaintance and ends up in a horrible accident--badly burned, his face completely disfigured. Life as it was before is over...he loses his girlfriend and his friends, and finds that people are making judgements about him and how he feels without even knowing.
As Martin struggles through the reconstruction of his face, he is also working hard to reconstruct his life. His character, however, remains intact. There are startling truths in this story, written with clarity and insight, which make it utterly believable and impossible to read without heartfelt empathy. Parents, librarians, teachers and mostly children will be absorbed by the story.

Hey everyone,

So far the book is fablous. I like it a lot and are actually thinking of buying the book. But only time will tell. I think everone will like it too because it has a lot of truth in it. And well, to sum it all up its a great book so far and I can hardly stand waiting for the next part of the story.

Found your comment while doing some research before teaching the book to a class and just wanted to tell you that I agree. A lot of books for young people are patronising and really don't reflect what being young in the world is like today. Face deals with realistis issues and pressures and is a brilliant read. REFUGEE BOY is good too. Keep reading.
