Cover Reveal! Cheryl Rainfield's STAINED!

It's cover reveal time!

I'm a big fan of CHERYL RAINFIELD. Her fiction is biting, relevant and true. She covers YA issues like nobody's business, yet she never comes off as preachy. Great stories, great issues, important reads and intuitive intelligent characters.

Today I have the privilege of sharing a cover reveal of Rainfield's next novel, STAINED! 

What is STAINED 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.

When will STAINED be released?

Here's what Cheryl Rainfield has to say about STAINED:
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.
