One thought on “The Ugly One, by Leanne Ellis

  1. Wow! What a great book! Characters, setting, and plot, they all make the story flow so well together. Setting is the strongest quality; the setting is what shapes this whole story. Characters: Micay learns to ignore the ugly comments directed at her because of her scar. Plot: Micay realizes that she has to take a journey to the rock, and that her scar makes her sacred, fulfilling a prophecy. I think it could win.
