All the girls at school make fun of her and have nicknamed her Ugly. Her mother thinks she needs a fun, creative nickname, something like . . . Cookie But kids at school can't just be told to call her Cookie. And, even worse, her Dad doesn't approve. His already bad temper reaches frightening new heights.

I found this book to be totally unsuitable for any child. Not only does it contain explicit language, but it also has graphic scenes of abuse. I was sorely disappointed in this book and the author.

Beauty Cookson hates her name because she insists it doesn't fit someone as plain and awkward as she is. Her father rules the house and everyone in it. He constantly ridicules Beauty's mother. One day he does something so awful that both mother and daughter flee the house. They accidentally end up in Rabbit Cove where they find a place to live but how will Beauty's mother ever find a job that she can do? Reviewed by BPL volunteer LS
