Charles didn't know much about life ... until he met The Man Without a Face "I'd never had a friend, and he was my friend; I'd never really, except for a shadowy memory, had a father, and he was my father. I'd never known an adult I could communicate with or trust, and I communicated with him all the time, whether I was actually talking to him or not. And I trusted him ...... Fourteen-year-old Charles desperately wants two things: a father and a way out. Little love has come his way until the summer he befriends a mysterious scarred man named Justin McLeod, nicknamed ""The Man Without a Face." Charles enlists McLeod's help as tutor for the St. Matthew's school entrance exams, his ticket away from the unpleasant restrictions of his home life. But more important than anything he could get out of a book, that summer Charles learns from McLeod a stirring life lesson about the many faces of love. Not much affection had come Charles's way until the summer he was fourteen, when he met McLeod [a man whose face was deeply scarred] and learned that love has many facets.' -BL. A highly moral book, powerfully and sensitively written; a book that never loses sight of the human." -H. 1972 Best Books for Young Adults (ALA) Best of the Best Books (YA) 1970-1983 (ALA) Outstanding Children's Books of 1972 (NYT)

Author Isabelle Holland was born in Basel, Switzerland on June 16, 1920. Since her father was an American consul, she grew up in Guatemala City and Liverpool, England until 1940 when her family returned to the United States because of World War II. In 1942, she received a bachelor's degree from Tulane University. She then worked in the publicity departments for numerous magazines and publishing companies including McCall's, Crown, Lippincott, Harper's, and G. P. Putman. Her first novel, Cecily, was published in 1967 and was followed by about fifty other books for children, young adults, and adults. Many of her young adult novels deal with topics such as death, obesity, rape, and homosexuality. Her novel, Of Love and Death and Other Journeys, was nominated for the 1975 National Book Award. Two of her novels, Bump in the Night and The Man Without a Face, were made into movies. She died in New York City on February 9, 2002 at the age of 81.
