'An extraordinary story of transformation and inner strength' - KATIE PIPER

'Well worth reading: a tale of real heroism and obstacles overcome' - THE MAIL ON SUNDAY


'Truly remarkable and so helpful' - FEARNE COTTON

'Finding self-acceptance hasn't always been easy. I was abandoned at birth with a facial difference, and as I got older, I began to hate my face and the world I lived in.

Gradually, through trial and error, random moments with strangers, and some tragic haircuts, I've found self-love and happiness.

This book is the story of how I found my way out of difficult times, and how you can do the same.'


Jono Lancaster was born with Treacher Collins Syndrome - a condition that affects facial appearence - and at only two weeks old, he found himself in foster care. In his remarkable story, Jono shares the highs and lows of his journey and how he turned his differences into his greatest strengths.

Inspirational, empowering and moving - this is an extraordinary memoir with a powerful message: you are strong enough to become your own hero. (Cape optional.)
