Matt Donaghy has always been a Big Mouth, but it’s never gotten him in trouble - until one day when two detectives escort him out of class for questioning. Matt has been accused of threatening to blow up Rocky River High School.

Ursula Riggs has always been an Ugly Girl. A loner with fierce, staring eyes, Ursula has no time for petty high school stuff like friends and dating—or at least that’s what she tells herself. Ursula is content with minding her own business. And she doesn’t even really know Matt Donaghy.

But Ursula is the only person who knows what Matt really said that day…and she is the only one who can help him.

In her first novel for young adults, acclaimed author Joyce Carol Oates has created a provocative and unflinching story of friendship and family, and of loyalty and betrayal.
