Beauty Cookson is no beauty – and her scary Dad is always telling her so. He’s a fussy, bullying tyrant who constantly puts her and Mum down. And when a birthday party goes very wrong, Mum and Beauty realise that Dad is out of control. They need to get away before he hurts them. So Mum and Beauty run away… and start a new life in an idyllic seaside resort. There, they find a new-found freedom, a hobby, an income, and even a new nickname for Beauty. All of Beauty’s dreams are finally coming true – and she deserves it! This wonderfully heartwarming novel from Jacqueline Wilson is the inspirational story of a girl freeing herself from abuse and discovering her true strengths.
