The Luck Uglies #1 Summary

The Luck Uglies #1 - Rye O’Chanter has seen a lot of strange things happen in Village Drowning: children are chased through the streets. Families are fined for breaking laws that don’t even exist. Girls aren’t allowed to read anymore, and certain books—books that hold secrets about Drowning’s past—have been outlawed altogether.

Now a terrifying encounter has eleven-year-old Rye convinced that the monstrous, supposedly extinct Bog Noblins have returned. Before the monsters disappeared, there was only one way to defeat them—the Luck Uglies. But the Luck Uglies have long since been exiled, and there’s nobody left who can protect the village.

As Rye dives into Drowning’s maze of secrets, rules, and lies, she begins to question everything she’s been told about the village’s legend of outlaws and beasts . . . and what she’ll discover is that it may take a villain to save them from the monsters. 

The Luck Uglies #1 Review

  • Great story - exceptionally well written.

    By Kisgryf
    The Luck Uglies is a fun story and really well written. The vocabulary and writing style is much better than most young adult fiction. I'm looking forward to more stories from Mr. Durham.
