Sara's Face

By Melvin Burgess

When Sara meets ageing rock star Jonathon Heat, he promises her the world. She'll become famous, beautiful, and extraordinary. But there's always a price to pay...

Sara is not your typical teenage girl. She wants more than just an ordinary life. She wants fame and beauty. She wants to be extraordinary. After she is injured in a mysterious accident, Sara meets Jonathon Heat, rock star. Heat is the centre of bizarre rumours and intense public adoration. And as Sara becomes ever more drawn into his powerful orbit, it soon becomes clear that Jonathon Heat wants something impossibly precious from her. But what does Sara really want? Sara's Face is a chilling exploration of the dark extremes of fame, plastic surgery and obsession.
