Michelle Elman


Every month 10,000 people Google the question ‘am I ugly?’ This book is for them.


Am I Ugly? follows Elman’s journey through 15 surgeries and body-confidence issues to embrace her scars and her body. It grapples with disordered eating, PTSD, and the interplay between beauty and illness.


With the honesty of memoirs like Brain on Fire; the tone of Body Positive Power; and the inclusiveness of Brene Brown, this is an exploration of dealing with society’s idealized image when you’re living in a body with scars.
