Book description:

For as long as they can remember, Joyebell, her younger sister Sand and their baby brother Presley have suffered devastating abuse. Beaten, emotionally and mentally abused by a mother with an untreated mental illness, the sisters are molested and raped by their mother’s newest husband, Corn; the third man they would call daddy.

Joyebell would do anything to be free of this childhood nightmare. And, at the age of fourteen, she’s about to find out just how high the cost of freedom really is. After running away from home, the teen must make ends meet by any means necessary on the streets of South Dallas. But despite her troubles, Joyebell is compelled to survive by her hope that there is something better, no matter what things look like or how they feel.

Hopefully Beautiful is the real-life story of a teenage runaway, one girl’s unstoppable spirit to live as she fights to emerge from a difficult childhood stronger than before; and determined to stay… Hopefully Beautiful.
