Confessions of an Ugly Girl is a chick lit novel by Alice Wasser. Written in the form of diary entries, protagonist Millie Glockenfeld decides to write all of her thoughts in a journal. These thoughts celebrate the fact that she is thirty-three years old and still single. Millie has a great job as an actuary, her own apartment, and a great best friend. She likes to think that she has it all, but in reality, she has a burning desire to get married. Millie actually believes she will never get married solely based on the fact that she is ugly. Although she is blind when it comes male attention, she starts to open her eyes when she meets the new, charming tech guy at work. His name is Sam Webber and he seems to be the perfect match, except for the fact that he is a quadriplegic and confined to a wheelchair. Will Millie be able to improve her low self esteem and make it work with Sam? Or will Sam’s disability and being able to love Millie for herself become too much for her to handle?

I fell in love with Confessions of an Ugly Girl very quickly. The humor in this book will make you laugh out loud and the warmth will leave you wanting more by the end. Wasser’s timing, style and characters are brilliant. Millie, the main character, is a sarcastic gem. She constantly sees herself as something she is not which is her biggest flaw. This flaw causes her to make irrational decisions. Despite this, she is passionate and will do anything for the people that she loves. Her love interest, Sam, is not your typical prince. But he is funny, smart and optimistic when it comes to life. Most importantly, he is always there for Millie and wants her to see that she is beautiful. I adored these two quirky characters and cherished reading about their relationship. There were so many aspects of this story that made it unique, which is why you should read it. All in all, I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a chick lit novel with a little twist.
