I saw another reviewer give Ugly Girls 1 star on Goodreads because they were scared of it.
They thought it was a YA novel about two adolescent girls, who are unlikely friends and get into a little trouble. What that reviewer was repelled by, will draw most people with a spine farther into the nervy, everyday trailer park terror that exists in the pages of Ugly Girls.
But as it goes, Ugly Girls isn’t YA, it’s Anti-YA.
