Summary

A riddle rarely makes sense the first time you hear it. The connection between Dane, a bully, and Billy D, a guy with Down Syndrome, doesn't even make sense the second time you hear it. But it's a collection of riddles that solidify their unlikely friendship.  
 
Dane doesn't know who his dad is. Billy doesn't know where his dad is. So when Billy asks for Dane's help solving the riddles his dad left in an atlas, Dane can't help but agree. The unmarked towns lead them closer to secrets of the past. But there's one secret Billy isn't sharing. It's a secret Dane might have liked to know before he stole his mom's car and her lottery winnings and set off on a road trip that will put him face to face with Billy's dad.

    Author Elsa Marston weaves an exciting story full of Egyptian mythology, historic detail and adventure in her book, The Ugly Goddess.  When a famous sculptor dies and leaves a magnificent statue of the goddess Taweret not quite finished, his young servant boy Bata resolves to deliver the statue to the person for whom it was commissioned.  That person is the Princess Meret, who, as Pharaoh’s daughter, is destined to become the new Divine Wife of the god Amun, a position of prestige and power.  But Meret has feelings for Hector, a handsome Greek soldier.  Amid much pomp and circumstance, Meret reluctantly sails up the Nile to the sacred city of Luxor to fulfill her role as the new Divine Wife.  Meanwhile, Bata has made a surprising connection with Hector, who loves Meret and hopes to find her before it’s too late. Together, they follow Meret up the Nile.  Bata quickly discovers that the statue is not just a skillfully carved piece of stone; it really is the goddess herself – Taweret – with the body of a crocodile, the head of a hippopotamus, the legs of a lion, and the arms of a man.  Carefully concealing the statue, Bata and Hector manage to get to Luxor—only to learn of impending catastrophe.  The Persians are about to attack Egypt and Princess Meret has been kidnapped! Will the divine assistance of Taweret help Bata and Hector accomplish their quest?
