Summary
A forthright, honest and rousingly brave memoir from a woman who has to live with a highly visible different appearance due to a rare skin condition. What she has to live with, and what she confronts on a day to day basis will have you cheering for her and her courage. Say hello to Carly. 'In fairytales, the characters who look different are often cast as the villain or monsters. It's only when they shed their unconventional skin that they are seen as "good" or less frightening. There are very few stories where the character that looks different is the hero of the story ... I've been the hero of my story - telling it on my own terms, proud about my facial difference and disability, not wanting a cure for my rare, severe and sometimes confronting skin condition, and knowing that I am beautiful even though I don't have beauty privilege.' This bold, brave and moving memoir by award winning writer and appearance activist Carly Findlay will challenge all your assumptions and beliefs about what it is like to have a visibly different appearance. Carly's memoir is about living with a rare skin condition, Ichthyosis. Hers is both a memoir and manifesto on disability and appearance diversity issues
