About the Book

Mia is a happy child with loving parents. Her father even calls her “his beautiful girl.” When it’s time for the first day of school, Mia is thrilled to make new friends, but her heart breaks when the other children are mean to her, making fun of the way she looks. Mia is so hurt that she runs and cries in the bathroom. She doesn’t tell her parents about the bullies at her school. Instead, she makes a plan. She will wear new clothes and try different hairstyles. Mia will be mean like the bullies, and then, they’ll like her! Her plan works, but Mia quickly learns that even if she has changed on the outside, she’s still sweet and loving on the inside. What does Mia do? She helps new students and students being bullied and becomes a friend to the friendless. Her bravery makes Mia a hero. Ugly Girl is the inspiring story of one child who triumphs over bullying by celebrating her uniqueness, respecting others, and being who God wants her to be—not who others expect.
