1. Faceless by Alyssa B. Sheinmel
When Maisie Winters wakes up, she’s in the hospital. The
last thing she remembers is running through the hills of her
neighborhood one misty morning. Slowly, she puts the pieces together.
Before she could make it home, a storm gathered. Lightning hit a power
line and sparks rained down, the hot-burning electrical fire consuming
her. Destroying her face. Where her nose, cheeks, and chin used to be,
now there is…nothing.
Maisie’s lucky enough to qualify
for a rare medical treatment: a face transplant. At least, everyone says
she’s lucky. But with someone else’s features staring back at her in
the mirror, Maisie looks—and feels—like a stranger.

Nix has spent her
entire life aboard her father’s ship, sailing across the centuries,

imagined: nineteenth-century China, the land from One Thousand and One Nights,
a mythic version of Africa. Along the way they have found crewmates and
friends, and even a disarming thief who could come to mean much more to
Nix. But the end to it all looms closer every day.
