Even if she was a selfish and spoiled woman, this book is thoughtfully written.


thoroughly engrossing

This is a sad but wonderfully well written account of a horrible -almost life long disease-and how the author coped with it throughout her life. It is an excellent follow up to Ann Patchett's "Truth and Beauty".

This memoir by Lucy Grealy recounts her childhood and the pain she suffered due to cancer that disfigured her face. Her story provides remarkable insight to the emotional struggle children often encounter when they believe they are "ugly."
