But Ursula is the only person who knows what Matt really said that day...and she is the only one who can help him.
In her first novel for young adults, acclaimed author Joyce Carol Oates has created a provocative and unflinching story of friendship and family, and of loyalty and betrayal.

Prose that grabs you
I've secondary school for 10 years and spent time taling with hundreds of adolescents. The author really captures the voice of real teenagers, never as simple as adults think. The protaganists are complex, authentic, and well-written. The intro to the two young people really grabbed me. The narrative was very compelling.

novel for EFL
Would you listen to Big Mouth & Ugly Girl again? Why?
Great voices, especially Ursula.
Have you listened to any of Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me think.
Any additional comments?
Very interesting book for my students, too. Especially Ursula as a tough and at same time insecure girl might help my female students in their process of growing up.
