Fugly

By Claire Waller

A wrenchingly honest, thought-provoking exploration of a girl judged and dismissed by society who must break the cycle of shaming that traps her in her real life and comforts her in her online one.

In real life, eighteen-year-old Beth is overweight, shy, and geeky. She's been bullied all her life, and her only refuge is food. Online, though, she's a vicious troll who targets the beautiful, vain, oversharing It girls of the internet. When she meets Tori, a fellow troll, she becomes her online girlfriend-slash-partner-in-crime. But then Tori picks a target who's a little too close to home for Beth. Unsettled, Beth decides to quit their online bullying partnership. The only problem is, Tori is not willing to let her go.

  • Authentic and moving treatment of topical issues: fat shaming, body dysmorphia, depression, and online trolling culture
  • Compelling and sympathetic voice
  • High stakes and increasingly suspenseful plot that draws readers in
