'I handed my school photograph to my mother. She stared from the photograph to me. "Lord, sweet Lord, how come she so ugly. Ugly. Ugly.'
These cruel words are just the beginning. Constance's mother systematically abused her daughter, both physically and emotionally, throughout her childhood. Regularly beaten and starved, the child was so desperate she took herself off to Social Services and tried to get taken into care. When Constance was thirteen, her mother simply moved out, leaving her daughter to fend for herself: there was no gas, no electricity and no food.
But somehow Constance found the courage to survive her terrible start in life. This is her heartbreaking - and ultimately triumphant story.
I absolutely love this book! Read it when I was about 14 and loved every minute of reading it. once I finished I never saw the book again until a few days ago I found it on here and I’ve finished it already. I love how much detail she goes into as it helps make up a picture in my head. I could read this book over and over. I definitely recommend this book to everyone! AMAZING!

This book was just great and had me hooked from the beginning. I have just downloaded the beyond ugly book to start. Well worth reading.
