In the book Big Mouth Ugly Girl by Joyce Carol Oates, the two main characters are Ursula Riggs and Matt Donaghy. Ursula calls herself "Ugly Girl", and doesn't care what anybody thinks of her. People have to look twice just to confirm that she's a girl, and she doesn't have many friends. Matt Donaghy is a top student with a lot of friends, and is known for being funny which gets him the title "Big Mouth". He's overheard saying something at lunch with his friends that gets misheard for what he really said. Someone reported his comment, and Matt was soon arrested for giving the school a bomb threat. None of his friends spoke up for him, but Ursula heard what Matt really said and decided to tell the truth. Matt's name was cleared, but he came back to school as a loner and a completely different person. He and Ursula became friends, and slowly started to change each other's lives. Because of this, the theme of the book would be "finding out who you really are can be an incredible journey", because both characters get to know themselves better as they get to know each other. I liked the plot of the book in general, especially the ending. The book had an appropriate length too. My only complaint was that I think it moved a little too quickly in the beginning, so there wasn't a lot happening in the middle. It's a relatable book for anyone though. Everybody's felt alone or different at one point or another during their lives and this book addresses those feelings through the characters. I would recommend this book for patient readers that are willing to wait for answers, and more exciting parts towards the end. Overall, I think it was a pretty good book, and think that just about anyone would enjoy it.

I had to read Big mouth and Ugly Girl for my english class. I didn't find it very interesting. When I started reading Big Mouth and Ugly Girl it was very hard to get into the book. It was based on a two main characters who were bullied at school everyday. There was no way around there fellow students. They had to go to school and face them everyday.I couldn't hardly bring myself to pick up the book at nights to read it. As I got further into the chapters it got a little better, if any. I all around found the book kind of boring, and it didn't interest me.

Teh book Big Mouth and Ugly Girl was a very amazing book. This book involves a sport that most people favor such as basketball.This book is about two different girls big mouth and ugly girl. Ursula Riggs is ugly girl. She loves hurting peoples feelings and is decribed as a very ugly girl. She also has brown hair. Brooke is the big mouth. she has blonde hair and is descibed as pretty and also loves to hur peoples feelings. She is known as big mouth Brooke. Together there known as big mouth and ugly girl. I like this book because it really shows kids that when you do things wrong there are consequences. This is not the best book i have ever writen but it gets #2.
