The main character is named Cara and she is very ugly. Mirrors break whenever she looks into them. People are always mean to her and call her names and really bring her down. One day, she gets a letter in the mail that says "find the answers." She was able to rearrange the letters to say "Where fins stand." She kept this letter with her, but she never knew entirely what it meant. A few days later, she comes home to find the most popular guy in school at her house talking to her dad. To Cara's surprise, he asks her to prom. She finds this too good to be true, because normally he is very mean to her. After much consideration, she decides to go to prom with him. Little does she know, it ended up that he only asked her because her dad offered him a car. She was so upset when she found this out that she just started going Northwest. Eventually, she runs into a sign of her dad and his car dealership that says "Where fins stand." Thats when she goes blank and falls asleep. Before she knows it, she ends up in a beautiful land where nobody knows about. There, a fountain is contained that made her beautiful! She goes back to her hometown and goes to school and nobody recognizes her. But, before she knows it she is turning everybody ugly! She decided that it isn't worth staying for so she goes back to the beautiful land. But when she gets there nobody is there! She finds a letter from on of the residents saying that they have left and that she must find them. I liked how this book is unique and that I have never read a book anything like it. I didn't like how it got boring. I would recommend this book to most people.

Neal Shusterman's latest `Dark Fusion' fantasy Duckling Ugly continues his series which takes a classic fairy tale's fantasy and provides a contemporary twist. Cara is ugly ¿ even her own parents can't deny it ¿ and her schoolmates are cruel. When she receives a mysterious note suggesting she's destined for greater things, even the wise woman of the town warns her destiny may be extraordinary. Does it have anything to do with the handsome boy she's been dreaming of? A fine leisure choices.
