“The plot is fast-moving and well-structured…Faye’s strong yet flawed character is worth getting to know.” —Kirkus Reviews

People say when you take Heam, your body momentarily dies and you catch a glimpse of heaven. Faye was only eleven when dealers forced Heam on her and her best friend, Christian. But Faye didn’t glimpse heaven—she saw hell. And Christian died.

Now Faye spends her days hiding her secret from the kids at school, and her nights training to take revenge on the men who destroyed her life and murdered her best friend. But life never goes the way we think it will. When a mysterious young man named Chael appears, Faye’s plan suddenly gets a lot more complicated. Chael seems to know everything about her, including her past. But too many secrets start tearing her world apart: trouble at school, with the police, and with the people she thought might be her friends. Even Gazer, her guardian, fears she’s become too obsessed with vengeance. Love and death. Will Faye overcome her desires, or will her quest for revenge consume her?

Roberts’s sophisticated plotting and strong authorial voice mark her as an emerging, and formidable, talent. THE BODIES WE WEAR is an action-driven revenge story that delivers on adrenaline and will hook and hold readers to the shocking end.
