michelle+8 (michelleplus8) | 1 comments Wow, what a great group idea! There is a book that I have been trying for YEARS to remember the name of.

It was a science fiction book about a human girl, a runaway I believe, who was born on Earth but was currently living on the streets of another planet. She'd had some kind of cosmetic surgery -- at her mother's insistence -- that was essentially permanent makeup. I think her name was Clarissa. She was also an excellent knife fighter.

Thanks for your attention!

michelle+8 (michelleplus8) | 1 comments I think there was some kind of alien who wanted Clarissa for something... like maybe he wanted her to fight for his amusement? It was probably 15 years ago that I read this book, so the details are hazy.

Cera This sounds a lot like Emily Devenport to me, but alas I don't remember *which* one. Maybe _Shade_ since I recall she had very unusual eyes, and I definitely remember a lot of knife fighting.

Larissa by Emily Devenport

Descriptions indicate the title character is a knife fighter. I've not read it, so I can't say whether it matches the rest of your description or not.
