But such is the toxicity of this daughter-mother relationship that not once did she acknowledge Carmen Briscoe-Mitchell, Neither did her mother attempt to speak to her. Briscoe was "a liar and a fantasist" her mother had then argued. But she lost, and is now bankrupted as a result, she said.

I read some of the reviews and that helped me to make up my own mind. Let me try to show you. I agree with the people who said the book was repetetive. But with every book I read during the last weeks, I had this same thought: Gosh, that could be shortened Of course, it was When I read the book, I was not sure whether I liked it or not. The repetition was her life and the literal device deepens that impression.
I read reviewers complaining about the details in descriptions of dresses, and lack in detail of the violence The violence was clear and if you need details you might be a bit sardistic I would also have liked to learn more about the siblings, but it is written from her perspective, so I accept that.
Do people who write those things hit their children themselves? Abandoning the child at the Age of 14, without electricity and demanding Rent, is nothing a child should be grateful for.
My criticism is not on the book itself. I simply wonder why C so rarely asked for help. One could say, she was intimidated by her mother and the failure of her first attempt to get help. I still think she should have tried harder. Why no one else reacted and helped her, and how she could be employed under age, will remain a mystery of mankind. I was fascinated by how she managed her life and became what she is now. What I will do is google her to see if I can find some further details on events and her family.
UGLY! by Constance Briscoe
She stared from the photograph to me. This amazingly awe inspiring true story of the horrible life the writer had to put up with truly shows the strength of the human spirit. As a teenager it makes you realise how lucky we are and makes you stop and think about the millions of children that face this problem everyday. Coming from a broken family, with her dad leaving Constance, otherwise known as Clare with 5 other brothers and sisters and her mum. The Father was hardly around only to bring Christmas presents and food. Clare was abused by her mother everyday, terrible physical abuse was inflicted on the growing body of Clare, benign cancer of the breasts caused by constant punches and squeezing from her mother. Emotionally shut out and neglected by her mother, taunted and teased all the time by her mother and her new husband, frequently called UGLY and told she was not welcome and unwanted.
