If I were dead, I wouldn't be able to feel.
If I were dead, he'd never raise his hand to me again.
If I were dead, his words wouldn't cut as deep as they do.
If I were dead, I'd be beautiful and I wouldn't be so...ugly.
I'm not dead...but I wish I was.

Ugly by Margaret McHeyzer
Wow! This was an incredibly intense read for me and one that I was not entirely prepared for.
McHeyzer brings forth a very sensitive topic in this book that I haven't really read about in-depth before and for that reason, it was at times, a difficult read. There were so many times that I just wanted to shake Lily in this book! I wanted her to to see the light, for her to recognize her own worth, and frankly, to grow a pair but she had to get there in her own way. I daresay, much like real-life, outsiders can see the situation much clearer and more objectively than those involved. I think the author did a brilliant job with this book. I think she treated the topic with respect and did it a great justice.
The book may have triggers for some, otherwise highly recommend.
*arc received in exchange for honest review.

A must read
Amazing, hard to put down powerful novel that shows us that been broken is not a life sentence. Thank you to Margaret McHeyzer for story that can change a life. Lily certainly changed mine.
Another fantastic novel by Margaret. From heartbreaking to heartwarming. Beautifully written! Loved it !
