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.

Review:

"The best book I read in 2014 . . . Gorgeous and necessary." - Roxane Gay, Salon

"Lindsay Hunter is a dazzling talent, and with Ugly Girls she has written what will surely go down as a new American classic. Every character is complex, every scene is dense as a bullet, and every sentence pulses with electricity. Magnificent.'' --Christina Henriquez, author of The Book of Unknown Americans

''Ugly Girls is a thrilling joyride of a novel, a dark and vital book that feels threatening in its rawness, its power, its unflinching portrait of youth. Lindsay Hunter lays bare the complexities of two girls' friendship - their taunting and cruelty, their rivalry and insecurity and abiding protectiveness - and she does it with urgency, wry humor, and surprising, menacing beauty.'' --Bret Anthony Johnson, author of Corpus Christi and Remember Me Like This

''Lindsay Hunter is the mistress of grit, all the dirty little details that make a story feel real and sad and true.'' --Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins

''I am in awe of Lindsay Hunter. Her debut novel is a canny examination of American girlhood under pressure - gritty, terrifying, and funny as hell. As Perry and Baby Girl, bound together by a friendship that is at once tender and toxic, hurtle through their world of trailer parks and stolen cars and lies, the dangerous secrets they uncover are matched only by the darkness simmering within. Ugly Girls is spiky, electric, unforgettable.'' --Laura van den Berg, author of The Isle of Youth

''The first great twenty-first-century novel about the dirty realities of class has finally arrived. Baby Girl and Perry are a pair of ugly outlaws conceived by one of America's great outlaw voices. They steal everything they can, but this is the type of book that's going to steal your time. You better get ready, people. To use Baby Girl's favorite word, this is one bad-ass 'bitch' of a book.'' --Scott McClanahan, author of Crapalachia and Hill William
