Duckling Ugly by Neal Shusterman
Cara is so ugly she breaks mirrors just by looking into them. Naturally she is an outcast at school but she has adjusted to her status for the most part. She is puzzled when she receives a letter that says "find the answers". Cara spends a great deal of time trying to solve this mystery without much luck. When the most popular boy at school asks her to go to the Homecoming dance with him she is not surprised to find out that he has an ulterior motive. But despite her anticipation she is humiliated by what happens at the dance and decides to run away. She ends up discovering the meaning of her mysterious letter and finding something even more magical when she arrives at the city of De Leon.
