In my university library, (which is perhaps the biggest library in the country in its category), while searching for Shaw���s plays and Shakespeare���s plays, I found this brand new book, clearly American, called ���big mouth and ugly girl���. It was a story based on the contemporary American school system post columbine. This guy who is a class joker says something, very casually and obviously joking about blowing up the school, and somebody reports him to the police, and FBI come to school to take him for questioning. Then this girl, Ursula, who is the captain of the girls��� basketball team, and is 6ft tall and is called the big girl(we don���t know if she is heavy, she doesn���t care bout weight), testifies on his behalf, cos she was there in the cafeteria when this guy had been shooting his mouth. These two get close and then start going around. It is very realistic, how their relationship starts.
Ursula isn���t really ugly, but she doesn���t fit in the beautiful either. She calls herself uglygirl, so that then all pressures are taken of her, and she can be aggressive (on court) and bold and honest (off court). I started my blog after I read that book, and I had identified with her, so I could not but call myself uglygirl.
