YA Scavenger Hunt!

Hey guys! I’m Christina Farley, your hostess for this leg of the hunt. I wrote the GILDED series, contemporary fantasies about a Korean-American girl with a black belt and a deadly proclivity with steel-tipped arrows who discovers an ancient Korean demigod has been kidnapping the first-born daughters of her family for generations. And she’s next.

The third book in the series, BRAZEN, released just two days ago!And to celebrate, I’m giving away a Kindle Fire HD8 and $50 gift card. Enter at the bottom of this post or go here to find out the details!

Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize–one lucky winner will receive one signed book from each author on the hunt in my team!

Today, I am hosting Alyssa Sheinmel on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! 

Alyssa Sheinmel is the author of several young adult novels including Faceless and Second Star, as well as the co-author of The Haunting of Sunshine Girl.  Bestselling author Luanne Rice called Faceless “gorgeous and wrenching… a vivid, compelling, beautiful, immediate novel.”  Alyssa grew up in Northern California and New York, and attended Barnard College. She now lives and writes in New York City.  Follow her on Twitter @AlyssaSheinmel or visit her online at

When Maisie Winters wakes up, she’s in the hospital.
The last thing she remembers is running through the hills of her neighborhood one misty morning. Slowly, she puts the pieces together: before she made it home, a storm gathered. Lightning hit a power line and sparks rained down, the hot-burning electrical fire consuming her. Destroying her face. Where her nose, cheeks, and chin used to be, now there is . . . nothing.
Maisie’s lucky enough to qualify for a rare medical treatment: a face transplant. At least, everyone says she’s lucky. But with someone else’s features staring back at her in the mirror, Maisie looks—and feels—like a stranger. The doctors promised that the transplant was her chance to live a normal life again, but nothing feels normal anymore. Before, she was just a regular girl—a track star and a good student who loved her boyfriend and her best friend and argued with her parents from time to time.  Now, she can’t even recognize herself.

Acclaimed author Alyssa Sheinmel has created a gripping and gorgeously written tale of identity and love. This is a story of losing yourself, and the long, hard fight to find your way back.
