SCARS LIKE WINGS CoverRelatable, 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.

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.

“A heartfelt and unflinching look at the reality of being a burn survivor and at the scars we all carry. This book is for everyone, burned or not, who has ever searched for a light in the darkness.” –Stephanie Nielson, New York Times bestselling author of Heaven Is Here and a burn survivor

If you want a YA Contemporary story that will leave you thinking AND covers a powerful mental health topic, this one is for you!

I absolutely loved reading this story. It’s one of those books that you will just fly through while hitting you hard.

I wouldn’t say it’s a tough book to get through, but the headspace the main character is in just leaves you heavy, and honestly, not in a bad way.

It is definitely a book I put next to Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow.  It has very similar vibes, and the writing styles match perfectly, so if you were a fan of that book like I was, you’ll surely love Scars Like Wings. 

I loved the main character and her unique situation. It leave that mental health mentality I n the writing as well. You really get to dive into her head. 

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars, and I feel like it’s a must read for every reader!
