Britain's most inspiring young woman helps give others the courage to cope with life's challenges, through personal anecdotes and expert advice.

To look and listen to the extraordinary Katie Piper, it is difficult to comprehend the severe trauma she suffered from a brutal rape and acid attack which left her with deep physical and emotional scars. These terrible events would have crushed most people, but through her positive outlook and sheer determination, Katie has become inspirational to millions and living proof that no matter what life throws at you, if you work hard and believe - things will get better.

Katie now begins to answer the question that everyone wants to know - 'Where did you find the courage?' She shares the key steps and support that led to her emotional recovery and acknowledges the pain we have all felt at times, whether suffering a breakup, life change or more serious trauma. Drawing on her own experiences and letters from other survivors, Katie shows with spectacular compassion that we can all find the strength within to carry on.

'Throughout a life full of the unexpected and the unknown, I have discovered so much about relationships, both the great and the tough sides. In this book I'm going to share what I've learned, hoping that it helps you navigate the relationships that form the journey of life.' Katie Piper is Britain's most inspiring woman, a much-loved voice of recovery and resilience. But after the acid attack that changed her life forever, Katie believed she would never have a relationship again - whether finding love, working again, or even with the material things we take for granted, like clothes, make up and food. Thanks to a support network of family and friends, doctors and nurses, police and lawyers, Katie pulled through the darkest of times. As Katie regained her confidence and learned to love herself again, she began to help others, building many meaningful connections - and she met her husband and started a gorgeous little family.Drawing on Katie's own experiences and life story with wisdom, humour and empathy, Together is about loving yourself, loving others, and being truly stronger, together.
