In Sayre Bellavia's world, she lives invisibly with a mother, Dianne, who cares more for a next hit (of drugs) than Sayre's welfare. Knowing full well she is an obsticle rather than a wanted daughter, Sayre can only survive each day. But when Dianne is on the very verge of death, Sayre has to race against time to reach to her and struggles to come to terms with a volatile past and find a measure of hope within herself.
Once again, Laura Wiess has written an unforgettable story with an equally unforgettable heroine. Like her debut novel "Such A Pretty Girl", "Ordinary Beauty" is a painfully raw but beautifully written story full of sorrow and hope. This story will haunt you and complete you.
