    DescriptionFrom the Number One Bestsellign author of UGLY Despite her mother's constant physical and psychological abuse, Constance Briscoe has gained a place at Newcastle University to study law - a long-held ambition. She finances her studies by several jobs at weekends and during the holidays, including working with the terminally ill in a hospice. She also finds the money to pay for several cosmetic surgery treatments in an attempt to transform the face that her mother has convinced her is ugly, ugly, ugly. With the degree achieved, Constance takes up Michael Mansfield's invitation to become a pupil in his prestigious chambers. But she didn't find the support and encouragement she expected.

    Review quote
    As compulsive as her bestselling debut, UGLY. Woman & Home It is a truly remarkable read from someone who overcame a torrid start in life. Sun On UGLY: 'Utterly extraordinary ... harrowing, often deeply disturbing, but ultimately inspiring' Daily Mail Reading the book is like an exercise in bottling up your rage. Afterwards, you feel helpless and disturbed. Which is only right. Standard An astonishing true story of hope over adversity Mail on Sunday Remarkable Good Housekeeping Horrific, but remarkable too. Lesley Pearse A heart-rending account of a mother's cruelty from one of the first black women to sit as a judge in the UK. Elle
