This book is stunning, inside and out. The beautiful cover implies exactly the mood of the story: pretty, but equally haunting.

Amelia is blessed with the ability to grow pearls from her skin. Once a month, tens of perfect round pearls burst from her back, beautiful and valuable, but also painful. Her mother takes over selling the pearls and keeps Amelia hidden from the world--for her own safety, or so she claims.

Constellation of Scars is a wonder-ride of ideas, haunting images, and food for thought as a young adult steps steps out on her own after a difficult upbringing.

The magical elements here add a delicious twist to the storytelling. Amelie’s character is easy to fall in love with- even though it’s hard for her to see that about herself in her Circumstances.

A Constellation of Scars is a rich tale exploring what makes us human in a world where Mother Nature sometimes twists the physical body into something monstrous. As Amelia Weaver struggles to form a new life after being forced to hide from the world because of her own freakishness, she must come to understand that outward appearances can belie what lies within. This book takes the reader on a journey both warm and chilling. It’s one you won’t want to miss.
