JKS Communications presents: COVER REVEAL "Stained" by Cheryl Rainfield

Book Description:
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.

Tag Line:
Sometimes you have to be your own hero.

Release Date:
Nov 19, 2013

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

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.

    1. Thanks! And thanks for dropping by

  2. I like how half her face is shadowed...very cool!

    1. Yes, fits exactly with the theme of "hiding" from what I can see.

  3. Thank you so much, Katy, for posting the cover of STAINED and the info! And thank you, Kriss and Dale, for looking! I like how half of Sarah's face is shadowed, too. :) Sarah usually hides part of her face because she has a port wine stain and also deals with body image issues and insecurity.... And you're right, it fits with hiding, too.

    1. Thanks for dropping in, Cheryl! Always nice to see an author risking the dangers of the Internet; y'all are always welcome here!
