Summary
Terra Rose has two main objectives: 1) hide the port-wine birthmark that covers half of her face and 2) finish high school and escape to "a college far, far away" from her abusive father. But after her dad derails her plans, Terra feels lost, and it's not until gorgeous Goth-boy Jacob comes into her life that she begins to see things differently. This emotional story about true beauty and inner strength includes fascinating details about geocaching (GPS-enabled treasure-hunting) and a life-changing trip to China. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
