From the first sentence to the last you won't stop wanting more. In less than two weeks my friends and I were ready to start the sequel. With every chapter the main character Tally faces a new conflict, decision, or meets a new character. The book is on self-image in a dystopian futuristic setting that makes you question, "What makes someone pretty?" Once you start it, you won't stop.
The first installment of Scott Westerfeld’s New York Times bestselling and award-winning Uglies series—a global phenomenon that started the dystopian trend.
Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can’t wait. In just a few weeks she’ll have the operation that will turn her from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty. And as a pretty, she’ll be catapulted into a high-tech paradise where her only job is to have fun.
But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to become a pretty. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world—and it isn’t very pretty. The authorities offer Tally a choice: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. Tally’s choice will change her world forever.
