Hideous Beauty by Willaim Hussey is a stunningly written jaw-dropping book, that we cannot write eloquently enough to convey just how much we loved it.
Dylan is forced to come out after his secret relationship with Ellis is exposed on social media, but to his surprise, everyone is really supportive – or appears to be. But Dylan’s and El’s happiness is short-lived, and following a tragic accident, Dylan begins to realize how little he knows about the boy he loves…or those closest to him.

Here they are, World! My author copies of #HideousBeauty! Aren't they fabulous?!?! 'It's you, Dylan,' El says, his voice almost cracking. 'And I know you think for some insane reason you don't deserve to be loved by me, but that makes you just about the most intelligent idiot I've ever met. I love you, Frecks. And it's fairy-tale bullshit, I know, but I've sort of loved you ever since the first time I saw you.' #LGBTQ #UKYA #GAYLOVESTORY #bookstagram #gaybookstagram #lgbtqya #authorsofinstagram #instabookstagram #instabookbloggers #instabooks #ya #yafiction #yaauthorsofinstagram #yalovestory #usborneya #usborneyafiction #lgbtqbooks #gayteenfiction #gayfiction #gaybookstagram #gaywriters #teenfictionbooks #bookcommunity #bookstagram #gaybookstagram #queerfiction #queerlovestory
Hideous Beauty will make you cry, it will make you laugh. It’s an emotional roller coaster, that will draw you in from the first page and not let you go until you finish. It will make you read it in once sitting.
It is an absolutely stunning, jaw-dropping and relevant book. From the very real pressures and struggles that young people within the LGBTQ community face, to including how social media can be used against people and to hurt them, Hideous Beauty doesn’t shy away from topics that many other YA books are reluctant to confront. William Hussey uses his own experiences to create an authentic and wonderful read that needs to be read by all.
