Book of the Week #39

The Luck Uglies by Paul Durham, illustrations by Petur Antonsson (NY: Harper, 2014)
"Rye and her two friends had never intended to steal the banned book form the Angry Poet--they'd just hoped to read it. In truth, it was nothing more than curiosity that brought them to the strange little bookstore wedged between a grogshop and the coffin maker. But the store's owner overreacted so strongly that they fled without thinking, the illicit tome still clutched under Rye's arm." p. 1
This is the first volume in a planned trilogy from Exeter resident Paul Durham. Kirkus said that "Layers, nuance, wit and a thumping good story make this a must-read." To learn more check out the trailer.
