This week you are getting not one cover but a cover reveal as well! (Actually, I was supposed to get this out a few days earlier and I totally missed it!).
We are pleased to reveal the cover for Stained by Cheryl Rainfield!
I am a big fan of Cheryl’s work. Her writing is so raw and real. After a particular bad day, I suggested her book Scars to a student of mine who I believe was suicidal. I was a move to this day I believed saved this student’s life. Any author who is capable of even coming close to that is worthy in my book! I can’t wait to read this next book. Here is some more information about.
In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for “normal.” Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.
Sometimes you have to be your own hero.

From the author:
Like I did with SCARS and HUNTED, I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write STAINED and to give it greater emotional depth. Like Sarah in STAINED, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened. And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape. I hope readers will see Sarah’s strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.
