Review

PRAISE FOR Ugly

"[This] coming-of-age story [is] unique and universal. [It] testifies to the power of a loving family and a courageous soul." --Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

"Eminently readable . . . a gripping readaloud, readalone, and discussion point all on its own." --Starred Review, BCCB

"Robert Hoge writes his exceptional life story in straightforward, compelling prose that forced me to question how I often I judge what I see around me. Bravo, Mr. Hoge! Please write more books." --Holly Goldberg Sloan, bestselling author of Counting By 7s

"Ugly made me think, it made me feel both joy and sadness, but most of all, it made me laugh. This is an honest, intelligent, and descriptive story of what it's like to grow up with a disability, including the good, the bad, and the . . . ugly." --Shane Burcaw, author of Laughing at My Nightmare

"A jaw-dropping story of resilience, courage, and fierce hope." --New York Times bestselling author Joan Bauer --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
