The Ugly One

Amazon.com Rating:

I had always been ugly, as far back as I could remember.

Micay has a deep scar that runs like a river from her right eye to her lip. The boys in her Incan village bully her because of it, and most of the adults ignore her. So she keeps to herself and tries to hide the scar with her long hair, drawing comfort from her family and her faith in the Sun God, Inti.

Then a stranger traveling from his jungle homeland to the Sacred Sun City at Machu Picchu gives her a baby macaw, and the path of her life changes. Perhaps she isn't destined to be the Ugly One forever. Vivid storytelling and rich details capture the life and landscape of the Incan Empire as seen through the eyes of a young girl who is an outsider among her own people.

Description

"Ellis introduces readers to the Incan culture and myths through Micay’s lessons in healing, Uncle Turu’s stories, and her people’s struggle through a horrible drought that threatens their very survival. Just as Uncle Turu’s stories hold special truths concealed as fables, this quiet, deeply moving story reminds readers of the true nature of beauty." -- Frances Bradburn, Booklist
