Face by Joma West

Type: Novel
Publisher: Tordotcom
Release date: August 2

Den of Geek says: I recently reread Uglies, the YA dystopia set in a world with government-mandated plastic surgery. Face plays with some of the same things in a contemporary, adult novel with shades of The Twilight Zone as well, adding in ideas about today’s online world and which “face” we present to the world.

Publisher’s summary: Schuyler and Madeleine Burroughs have the perfect Face―rich and powerful enough to assure their dominance in society.

But in Schuyler and Maddie’s household, cracks are beginning to appear. Schuyler is bored and taking risks. Maddie is becoming brittle, her happiness ever more fleeting. And their menial is fighting the most bizarre compulsions.

In Face, skin color is an aesthetic choice designed by professionals, consent is a pre-checked box on the path to social acceptance, and your online profile isn’t just the most important thing―it’s the only thing.

Den of Geek says: Reynolds is a master of hard science fiction. This era-spanning novel doesn’t forget the human stories among the science, either.
