Product description

'I heard a horrible screaming sound, like an animal being slaughtered ...then I realised it was me.' When Katie Piper was 24, her life was near perfect. Young and beautiful, she was well on her way to fulfilling her dream of becoming a model. But then she met Daniel Lynch on Facebook and her world quickly turned into a nightmare ...After being held captive and brutally raped by her new boyfriend, Katie was subjected to a vicious acid attack. Within seconds, this bright and bubbly girl could feel her looks and the life she loved melting away. Beautiful is the moving true story of how one young woman had her mind, body and spirit cruelly snatched from her and how she inspired millions with her fight to get them back.

I could not put this book down. I enjoyed this inspiring but gruesome read because I could sense the triumph that was coming. Congratulations to Katie Piper for being such an inspiration in the face of dreadful adversity. She is truly a hero. I loved this book because it gave me hope. I laughed and cried with her ups and downs. I hope I will never again complain about my own insignificant challenges. This is a must read.
