Big Mouth" is another high school student - a boy named "Ugly Girl" is a high school student (aka Ursula Riggs) who has built up walls around herself. It's a book I wish I'd had at that age. Ugly Girl is accepted by some and rejected by most at her school, but her awesomeness is readily apparent to readers, and that's not because this book carries the trite, ham-fisted message to be nice to the outcasts, they are people too! It's because Joyce Carol Oates is so skilled at laying out the intricacies of Ugly Girl's personality in a subtle and truthful way - from her fierce devotion to doing the right thing to her shaky, but deep confidence despite an outward uncertainty.

Big Mouth & Ugly Girl are the two main characters of Joyce Carol Oates' novel, and the story is told through their observations, conversations and correspondence. It's both amusing and infuriating to see the plot unfold. You know where it's all going, and secondary characters are trotted out to move it all along. The bigots, phonies, dumb jocks, cowardly administrators and more are almost cardboard cut-outs propped up to decorate a stage. There are no huge surprises in Big Mouth & Ugly girl, but it is a story well-told. It is certainly worth your time.

Fat girls, girls wearing thick glasses, girls lacking motor coordination, asthmatic girls who puffed and panted if they had to trot a few yards. But Ugly Girl was one of the best athletes at Rocky River High. We were on a winning streak, though I surely wasn’t what you’d call a popular captain, and if I was in one of my Fiery Red moods, I wasn’t what you’d call a team player. I was out to score, and I scored.
