Melvin Burgess, author of the award-winning young adult novel Junk, explores the sinister side of fame, obsession and the cult of celebrity in the psychological thriller Sara's Face. Sara Carter wants to be famous. Fame is her obsession. So when legendary rock star Jonathon Heat offers her star training and the cosmetic surgery she thinks she wants, Sara can't believe her dream will come true. But Jonathon Heat doesn't want Sara's talent. Jonathon Heat wants Sara's face. Melvin Burgess is on top form with this chilling, original and topical psychological thriller. Award-winning children's author Melvin Burgess is one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary young adult fiction. His most well-known book Junk won the Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children's Fiction prize and was shortlisted for the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year.
