Brigid Sullivan's Review of Ugly Girl
Strip away noses, complicated backgrounds, boobs, and fussy detail, and what do you get?
Strip away noses, complicated backgrounds, boobs, and fussy detail, and what do you get? A tight focus on characters and body language. It's surprising how expressive the characters in "Ugly Girl" are, considering their cartoonish eyes, lack of nose... lack of detail, in fact. Yet Nanda pays attention to her craft, and the stripped down style she uses is excellent for conveying the raw, powerful emotion of the high school years. She uses body language to express and puncuate what's both said and unsaid. The storyline is pretty cliched. There's an unpopular girl who other students think is ugly. She's lonely. There's a fat kid (also unpopular) who likes her. There's heartbreak at a school dance. And I'm still reading. Because Nanda manages to make this fresh and interesting. I care about these stick figures. And that's a powerful thing. Read this. Learn from its simplicity. ... read it now!
