I received a free kindle copy of Ugly Mugly: Ugly Is Only Skin Deep by J.C. Hulsey in an Amazon promotion in exchange for a fair review.
I gave this short sad story almost four stars. It took place in the 1880's in the Western United States.
The main character is called Ugly Mugly. He had a twin brother who was fourteen minutes older & grew into a handsome man. Ugly Mugly was treated without mercy in school. Even his mother just tolerated him & his father left when he was five.
His only friend was a Cur dog named Ginger who didn't care how he looked. Even his brother denied him. At last things turned around for him & he was recognized.
