The dazzling sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, The Belles, the book with a wealth of incredible reviews from Buzzfeed, Kirkus, Rick Riordan, Roxane Gay, and many more.
Louise O'Neill's Only Ever Yours meets Scott Westerfeld's Uglies, welcome to a world where beauty is only ever skin deep...
Camellia Beaureguard is a Belle. She can make you beautiful. Though there is always a cost. With a price on her head, the evil Queen Sophia out for blood, and no idea who to trust, Camellia must race against time to find the ailing Princess Charlotte, who has disappeared without a trace.
Sophia's imperial forces will stop at nothing to keep Camellia, her sister Edel, and her loyal guard, Remy, from returning Charlotte to the palace and her rightful place as queen.
With the help of a secretive resistance movement called the Iron Ladies - a society that rejects beauty treatments entirely - and the backing of underground newspaper the Spider's Web, Camellia must use her powers, her connections, and her cunning to outwit her greatest nemesis, Sophia, and restore peace to Orleans.
