Cover and Trailer Reveal: Stained by Cheryl Rainfield


Thanks for stopping by for the Cover Reveal AND Trailer Reveal for

Stained by Cheryl Rainfield!


Sometimes you have to be your own hero.
In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for “normal.” Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.

Like I did with SCARS and HUNTED, I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write STAINED and to give it greater emotional depth. Like Sarah in STAINED, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened. And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape. I hope readers will see Sarah’s strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.

    Jenea, I’m so glad you like the STAINED cover and trailer! (beaming) I love them, too. I love that the cover immediately tells you what the book is about, just like SCARS did.
