Don't Make Me Beautiful

Don't Make Me Beautiful - Elle Casey This book made me cry and laugh all at the same time. The saddest part of this book is the domestic violence. Nicole is so beaten by her boyfriend for so long that it destroys her face. Her face has so many broken bones that have healed without doctor’s care that it has disfigured her. Her world changes when a young boy hits his father’s baseball through her front window. She does not want to even tell her boyfriend because he will beat her and blame it all on her. The boy, Liam, and his father, Brian, try to do the right thing and go to Nicole’s house to offer to repair the window. Brian and Liam have a discussion with John, Nicole’s boyfriend. Something about the way that John talks about his wife (Nicole) bothers Brian. Brian goes the next day and finds Nicole beaten almost to death by John. Brian saves her and talks her into staying with him. Brian and Nicole fall in love. It is a great story with one big twist that will have you crying until the end. Some people might have a hard time understanding that Nicole does not want to be beautiful after everything that she has been through. I completely understand. Why go back to the way things were when there is a small chance that she will be abused again.
