Uglies

Uglies
Scott Westerfeld; Scholastic Inc. 


Summary:Tally is about to turn sixteen, a special time for Uglies. A time where they can turn pretty.  In Tally's world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. 
But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world which in fact isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.
My Review:  OMIGOSH! I could not put Uglies down. What an incredible read! Tally is such an awesome character, I have become very attached to her and the other characters in this series. I highly highly recommend this series.So read it! Now!
Watch Out For: Surgery descriptions and utopian beliefs.
