Cheryl Rainfield is one of my favorite authors, and I’m excited to get to help her release the cover to her upcoming YA novel, Stained.
Ok, just that picture gives me chills! Here’s the synopsis:
In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for “normal.” Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. 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.
Cue more chills! Sounds really good. Mark your calendar – or at least add it to your to-read shelf on Goodreads – as it’s coming out in November. It’s a long wait, but I suspect it’ll be worth it!
From the author:
Like I did with SCARS and HUNTED, I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write STAINED and to give it greater emotional depth. Like Sarah in STAINED, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened. And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape. I hope readers will see Sarah’s strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.
And here is the trailer (in case it won’t load, the link is HERE):
Stained is available for preorder, if you want to make sure to get your copy ASAP.
