Katie Piper was an upcoming model and TV presenter with a bright career ahead of her but that was all taken away from her in one moment. After raping, beating and abusing her, her ex- boyfriend, a violent, jealous and possessive evil man hired somebody to throw a cup of acid into Katie's face, leaving her fighting for her life.
This story tells the tale of an emotional rollercoaster; focusing on the ups and downs of a recovery that nobody would of thought was possible. At an all time low after numerous operations and the anxiety and stress of having to give evidence in court against the evil savages that did this to her, Kate Piper manages to gain self confidence again. She does so with the help of doctors, God and even celebrities such as Simon Cowell who realise what a brilliant strong, BEAUTIFUL, human bring Katie Piper is and do everything they can to help her. This book makes you realise that beauty is not on the outside, but truly from within.
This book is a fantastic read. Not only is it well written and easy to read, it is a true story written by a person who has shown more courage than anyone could ever imagine. It definitely makes you think about how easily life can change and that it only takes one cruel, sick individual to do so.
Summary: Follow the story of an amazing individual. Most inspirationl book
