This is an auction for an audiobook of THE LUCK UGLIES by Paul Durham.

Read by Avita Jay.

"PaulDurham kick-starts his fantasy adventure trilogy with this cracker of an introduction. Rye O’Chanter—11 years old, unbelievably brave, and jaw-droppingly reckless—lives with her widowed mother and toddler sister in Village Drowning. The village is under the thumb of the ruthless and self-absorbed Earl Longchance. Years ago the village was terrorized by Bog Noblins, and Longchance claims the credit for driving them away. But legend says that honour goes to the Luck Uglies, a secret (some would even say criminal) society now banished and lost. Durham has created an impressively tactile world peopled with fully realized characters."
- a *** starred *** review in Booklist (US)

"Eleven-year-old Rye and her best friends, Quinn and Folly, are curious about their town and its history. What really lies beyond Village Drowning's walls in the area known as Beyond the Shale? Do the huge, ravenous monsters known as Bog Noblins exist? Are there still avengers known as Luck Uglies? The trio tries to find answers in Tam's Tome, a book banned by the Earl. Together with help from her friends, Rye uncovers the village's secrets (and those within her own family), including an underground maze that leads from one end of the village to the other. The fast plot is enhanced by humor, likable characters—including some adults—undiluted heroism, frightful Bog Noblins, and a despicable Earl. Altogether, this is a fast, fresh, and engaging adventure sure to delight readers on several levels."
