From the Number One Bestselling 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.

Really enjoyed both these books ugly & beyond ugly, completely captivating, you live the part of Constance & want everything to turn out good for her in the end.
"Clearly Not" beyond ugly
As gripping and captivating as this book is, it is also deeply disturbing and frustrating. It becomes more and more clear throughout the book that the the author clearly has Not been able to leave her past behind, and has Not come to terms with her past. When reading this book, anyone who is passionate cannot help but think "Oh Please, get over it, leave it be".
Hence the reason I think there are a few words missing in the title, it should have been named "clearly not beyond ugly".
And when you read about the author's conviction in 2014, it clearly shows that is Lady is anywhere but beyond her troubled past. She still needs help, and I wish her the very best.
I extremely enjoyed reading beyond ugly I couldn't put the book down.
