A sad story

This story did make me cry. This poor girl has some much strength and the most amazing parents you could imagine. I don’t think I would have liked the Katie pre accident- which is more a reflection of me. The new Katie was/is inspiring and deserves happiness.

Inspiring story of true courage.

I loved this book. Katie Piper is an inspiration, a truly amazing, strong and beautiful person. Her story moved me so much, told with such raw honesty and emotion. It made me cry at times and feel angry about what had happened to her but also laugh, hope and dare to dream. She was my hero before but even moreso now as she shared her journey, no holes barred. The narration was excellent. I can't say enough about this book.
