Beauty Cookson is no beauty. In fact, she’s as plain as anything – 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 escape before someone gets hurt. So they run away! Soon Mum and Beauty are in a sunny seaside resort, finding a new-found freedom, a hobby, an income… and even a new nickname for Beauty. All of Beauty’s dreams are coming true at last… and she deserves it! This brand new blockbuster from Jacqueline Wilson is an inspirational tale of hope to make your heart dance.
