Who are you if your friends are gone and you don’t recognize your own face? Cassie is scarred for life – her face mutilated horribly by an acid bomb thrown by a terrorist. But she’s been given a second chance by a surgical procedure that means she’ll look in the mirror and forever see someone else’s face. She is the world’s first face transplant patient. This thriller was w Who are you if your friends are gone and you don’t recognize your own face? Cassie is scarred for life – her face mutilated horribly by an acid bomb thrown by a terrorist. But she’s been given a second chance by a surgical procedure that means she’ll look in the mirror and forever see someone else’s face. She is the world’s first face transplant patient. This thriller was written well before the world’s first real face transplant ever took place. When Wayne first meets Cassie she’s ugly like something out of a zombie film. But thrown together as medical guinea-pigs, Wayne and Cassie form an alliance that will be tested to the limit because Cassie’s new face isn’t enough to hide her from the terrorists who are after her father. They’re determined to get him by any means necessary – and that means they’re gunning for her... ‘It gets off to an explosive start – and being a thriller, it pretty much maintains this fast pace all the way through the book. There are lots of parts that keep you on the edge of your seat, and not sure what is going to happen. Having said that, the main characters, Cassie and Wayne, get such a battering you truly feel sorry for them.’ Chris, www.cool-reads.co.uk . ‘An explosive and chilling thriller from the author of Bloodline and Plague, this book is neatly constructed and strongly written, and will appeal to teenagers – particularly those in a gruesome frame of mind.’ Sian O’Neil, South Wales Argus. ‘Malcolm Rose’s previous novels for teenagers have combined gripping stories with subjects which invite serious moral and ethical debate amongst readers. His latest is no exception, intertwining questions of medical ethics, politics and religion. A powerful storyline which pulls no punches despite its youthful intended audience, Transplant would provide a wealth of discussion points for PSHE at Key Stage 3 and 4.’ Bridget Carrington, Writeaway website. ‘I was surprised at the amount of action that could be fitted into one book. Straight away, it grasped my attention and I read it in one 4-hour sitting. Excellent.’ Chris Fraser, Priestnall School, Stockport Schools’ Book Award website. ‘A roller coaster of drama, cosmetic surgery, murder and love with dramatic results. Rose has excelled himself. A fantastic read.’ Duncan, Judging Panel of The North East Book Award.
