The Luck Uglies
  Written by Paul Durham
  Hardcover, 400 Pages
  YA, Fiction
  April 2014, $16.99

Strange things are happening in Village Drowning, and a terrifying encounter has eleven-year-old Rye O'Chanter convinced that the monstrous, supposedly extinct Bog Noblins have returned.

Now Rye's only hope is an exiled secret society so notorious its name can't be spoken aloud: the Luck Uglies. As Rye dives into Village Drowning's maze of secrets, rules, and lies, she'll discover the truth behind the village's legends of outlaws and beasts . . . and that it may take a villain to save them from the monsters.

The first in an irresistible fantasy adventure trilogy that has an action-packed adventure with heroes you'll root for and baddies you'll hiss at. It overflows with secrets, friendship, and heart—and is imbued throughout with the magic of storytelling.

Paul Durham was raised in Massachusetts and attended college and law school in Boston. He now lives in New Hampshire with his wife, two daughters, and an enormous bushy creature the local animal shelter identified as a cat. He writes in an abandoned chicken coop at the edge of a swamp and keeps a tiny porcelain frog in his pocket for good luck.

My Thoughts
I read this along with my nephew.  It starts out with Rye jumping from rooftop to rooftop because she saw a Gargoyle.  It has plenty of action and humor rolled up into a fantasy novel.  There are plenty of life lessons included in the story also.  Fun characters along with the bad.  Looking forward to the next book.  I Rated This Book:  4/5 Stars ****
