Summary

Hideous Beauty is a touching tale of LGBTQ+ identity from award-winning author William Hussey. 

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 realise how little he knows about the boy he loves...or those closest to him.
