BuzzFeed Books' Best Book of 2014

Perry and Baby Girl and two teenage girls with very little to lose. They're best friends with sharp edges, and they cut to bleed--no one's off-limits, not even each other. To survive the loneliness and boredom of a world that pays them no mind, they spend their nights sneaking out and stealing cars and their days sleeping through class. But when a dangerous stranger from the Internet begins to give them all the attention they never knew they craved, Perry and Baby Girl have to decide what their friendship is truly worth in the face of desperation and violence.

Lindsay Hunter is a killer stylist, "the mistress of grit" (Jami Attenberg), and Ugly Girls is fast and dirty, grim yet gorgeous, dying to be devoured. Come and get it.

Why do I keep reading books about disturbed women, or as I call them, "people you would never want to be". More sad disturbed women in this book, but the writing is excellent. The characters are nicely developed. I am usually disappointed with book conclusions, and this was no exception. While the ending was unsatisfying, I'm not sure a better ending exists. I've now made a promise to myself to read books with more uplifting subjects.

I enjoyed reading the internal voices of all these characters but I felt they were way too self aware and emotionally intelligent considering the circumstances of their lives. It also ended way to suddenly. Very unsatisfying.

Not my type of story. I think the writing was great but the story did not keep me that interested. The author did such a great job with her description of the characters that i felt like i needed a good shower after reading this. The characters just seemed so dirty and careless that I didn't care what happened to them in the end.
