Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers


Relatable, heartbreaking, and real, this is a story of resilience—the perfect novel for readers of powerful contemporary fiction like Girl In Pieces and Every Last Word. A year ago, a fire destroyed Ava Lee’s world and she lost everything there is to lose: Her parents. Her best friend. Her home. Even her face. She doesn’t need a mirror to know what she looks like—she can see her reflection in the eyes of everyone around her. Now her aunt and uncle have decided she should rejoin the world. Be “normal” again. Whatever that is. But when she returns to school, she learns that maybe she doesn’t need to learn to fly on her own.
