The Luck Uglies

The Luck Uglies

I read the book The Luck Uglies Rise of the Ragged Clover, by  Paul Durham and it was great. The book was about a girl named Rye rescuing her father Harmless from the evil Fork-Tongue Charmers. Now, Harmless, the High Chieftain of the Luck Uglies must challenge Slinister, the High Chieftain of the Fork-Tongue Charmers. Will Harmless win in the battle of good and evil? Or will Slinister finish off Harmless and have control over both both groups? You can find out by reading the book.

My favorite part of the book was when Rye destroyed the village for its own good. It was pretty ironic since she drowned the village that was called “Drowning”.

I would recommend this book to 8-12 year olds since it is 379 pages and it has some pretty sophisticated vocabulary words.
