This is the sequel to Ugly about a girl who is so abused by her mom who always tells her how ugly she is.
This book is about Constance trying to become a lawyer.

Maybe because of the translation but sometimes I thought her very weird but can you blame her. It seems she still takes abuse from other people. Her doctor her co workers. To me the writing and the story was all a bit weird,parts you would think would be very important were skipped and unimportant stuff was talked about a lot. I did discover that I still am much quicker reading Dutch than English. Read it in half a day.… (mer)

The book was magnificent. I read stories like this and wonder why some people bother to have kids. I'm glad that she was able to write her story.

Well I finished it last night and in the beginning of the book I thought it would be really hard to read, it was, but not as bad as i thought it would.

I was shocked that a young girl is treated in a hospital has to stay there at least 5 days, nobody visits her and no questions are asked?
The same with the school, she comes at school clearly being beaten up, she even tells them who did it but all they do is think about themselves? weird.
I did think this girl was a fighter, look at the other sisters, they were not as abused as she was but they did every thing for their mother, were scared of her shitless, but this girl was abused terribly but did try to stand up. I hope this witch of a mother will be punished. Someone in a review said this girl was not a fighter, I disagree.
Must say I would love to know what happens next but not so much that I am going to buy the sequel :)
