Beauty Comes with a Beast is the true story of Korrie Jo Vance. Korrie is a 30-year-old woman who has carried the secret of her eating disorder for 15 years. As she reaches for recovery, she shares within these pages how she got caught in the dieting trap, the trauma she faced, the lies she believed, her journey through therapy, and her advice for all those who are struggling to overcome a Beast of their own. She opens up her journal and gives us an inside look at the rawest and most vulnerable moments in her life.
