I believe the cover of that was just accentuating the word ''ugly'' to make it more dramatic. And to make the pretty look like a barbie. Just for effect.

Anyone remember the cover for Midnighters Scott posted on his blog a while back?  The one that showed Dess in a subway station?  Covers are not under the control of the author and frequently make no sense.  Not to mention, you don't need lesions in your brain to think you look much worse than you do.

I remember that blog post! That was way before I joined the forum....but anyway, yeah, authors hardly have any say in the covers.

You ever heard the horror stories about anorexic people thirty pounds underweight who are convinced they're disgustingly overweight?  Got about as much meat on them as a holocaust victim and still fighting to lose just five pounds more?  Not to mention, considering you are (I think) female and living in modern western society, there's decent odds that you, yourself think you look a lot worse than you do.  Comparing yourself against impossibly attractive supermodels with two hours of photoshop backing them up and such.

The question 'Why??!' Had nothing to do with dat (AT ALL). BTW I *am* a female. I actually think l'm REALLY (lol) pretty, but not conceded about it. Okay, sometimes I am, but because I'm having umm, my moment (lets say). AND I do not compare myself to supermodels (okay maybe not supermodels..... but still not much anyways). I don't even want to be a model, I want to be an author.  =D ;D

I said there were decent odds, I didn't say it was a sure thing.
