Losing Face - a novel for young adults or anyone who enjoys a story dealing with difficult issues
Losing Face is a story of friendship and overcoming adversity, told through Word documents and email. It covers the accident and recovery of shy, musical Cass, who makes one mistake which leads to a terrible accident through which she is badly injured. Her friend Em supports her but the two very different girls struggle in their own ways as Cass undergoes surgery, eventually returning to a mixed reception back at school. Throughout the story, emotions are explored and values challenged, particularly through Cass's relationships with her mother and her boyfriend, Spider.
Will Cass cope with all that has happened to her? Will Em stay with her or will their fragile friendship fall apart? And who will she become when she carries the scarring with her?
