Review

This fabulous easy-to-read tale is a treasure for anyone who has ever given their looks a second thought. Ugly offers a bracing perspective on life, love and the real definition of beauty. - Good Reading on UGLY adult edition

This is an incredible life story that will no doubt attract much publicity and discussion about beauty, ugliness and how we value ourselves. - Australian Bookseller + Publisher on UGLY adult edition

There is much to be learned from this ugly man whose spirit is truly beautiful. - Saturday Age on UGLY adult edition

[A] frank, wry and funny memoir ... - Sunday Age on UGLY adult edition

If Robert Hoge reckons he belongs to the Ugly Club, then "ugly" must mean humour and courage, love and decency. - William McInnes

Product Description

A beaut story about one very ugly kid.

Robert Hoge was born with a tumour in the middle of his face, and legs that weren't much use. There wasn't another baby like him in the whole of Australia, let alone Brisbane. But the rest of his life wasn't so unusual: he had a mum and a dad, brothers and sisters, friends at school and in his street. He had childhood scrapes and days at the beach; fights with his family and trouble with his teachers.

He had doctors, too: lots of doctors who, when he was still very young, removed that tumour from his face and operated on his legs, then stitched him back together. He still looked different, though. He still looked ... ugly.

UGLY is the true story of how an extraordinary boy grew up to have an ordinary life, and how that became his greatest achievement of all.
