'I heard a horrible screaming sound, like an animal being slaughtered ... then I realised it was me.'

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.

Astonishing story of bravery and hope
Beautifully written story and truly inspiring. It is difficult to put into words the immense respect I have for Katie, her family and health care workers. Wonderful work she has done to help others despite her own suffering.
