Buzz for Scar Girl:

“Vlahos’ voice is honest and true—this hit me straight in the heart. Anyone who is or has ever been a teenager will relate to the longing, the triumphs and the miseries. And no matter what, the characters in Scar Girl, like the rest of us, get up the next day and love again.” Beth Albrecht, The Magic Tree Bookstore
“[This] story will offer satisfying closure to the first book’s many fans who want to know what happened next.” —Booklist​
