Ugly Shy Girl

by Laura Dockrill - £11.99  HarperCollins Publishers (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780007301287 | ISBN 10: 0007301286

Roald Dahl and Quention Blake meets Tim Burton in sassy poet Laura Dockrillís edgy and hilarious tale.

You might have known somebody like Ugly Shy Girl once Ö You might have seen her bumping into lamp-posts and tripping over her bag. She wears a denim skirt down to her ankles and a second-hand Naf Naf jacket. Her hair hangs down in front of her face and her nails are bitten and sore. She is always doing or saying completely the wrong thing.

This twisted tale is about the struggle of growing up in a place where you donít belong, surrounded by people you hate...and how delicious getting your own back can be.
