Publisher's Summary

In today's world of supplements, celebrity diets and social media, it's very easy to be hard on ourselves about the way we look. With all this pressure to strive for 'perfection' aesthetically, it is easy to forget how damaging this can be psychologically. 

Michelle Elman is a leading part of the body positivity movement that has been gathering momentum to liberate people from these unrealistic standards, recognise that all bodies are equally valuable and broaden the billboard definitions of beauty. Am I Ugly? is this inspiring woman's compelling and deeply personal memoir that describes her childhood experiences of life-threatening health problems, long stays in hospital and 15 complex surgeries that left her scarred, both mentally and physically. 

The narrative follows Michelle's journey from illness to health and from childhood to adulthood as she deals with her body-confidence issues to embrace both her scars and her body - and help others to do the same. This remarkable audiobook grapples with the wider implications of Michelle's experiences and the complex interplay between beauty and illness.

Exceptionally wonderful

Michelle’s story is remarkable and so is she. This book chronicles her journey through multiple surgeries and stages of her life with skill and with spirit. I’m so grateful that Michelle was winning to share her story and hope that others find the hope and joy from her journey that I have.

Wonderful storytelling for a wonderful story

This book is a unique story but made me feel so seen. Most books like this I have read always put the events of the story before the storytelling, this book has the balance right. It is funny but it is truthful, insightful yet not preaching. It makes you ask yourself what little changes can I make to change my life.
