Before, I was a million things. Now I’m only one. The Burned Girl.
Ava Lee has 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.
A year after the fire that destroyed her world, her aunt and uncle have decided she should go back to high school. Be “normal” again. Whatever that is. Ava knows better. There is no normal for someone like her. And forget making friends–no one wants to be seen with the Burned Girl, now or ever.
But when Ava meets a fellow survivor named Piper, she begins to feel like maybe she doesn’t have to face the nightmare alone. Sarcastic and blunt, Piper isn’t afraid to push Ava out of her comfort zone. Piper introduces Ava to Asad, a boy who loves theater just as much as she does, and slowly, Ava tries to create a life again. Yet Piper is fighting her own battle, and soon Ava must decide if she’s going to fade back into her scars . . . or let the people by her side help her fly.
Scars Like Wings is a must read. I really did enjoyed this book. I was hooked with the storyline and the characters growth.
It’s a miracle Ava is alive after surviving a house fire. She lost her family and cousin that day also. Within a year of hiding at her aunt house, it’s time for her to venture the outside world. Scars of the past still haunts her, she starts school at a new place. Which is not easy when people start treating you differently.
Will Ava be able to find herself again and start letting people in?
The book has a new fresh outlook to it. Instead of dealing with a pretty main character, you get some who is scar on the inside and out. It was written pretty good and the book draws you. This book recently came out this week. In mood for a new book, then try Scars Like Wings.
