Uglies by Scott Westerfeld   [YA Fiction]

by Kaitlin, 10th grade

Uglies takes place in a society where on your sixteenth birthday, you get a surgery which turns you “Pretty”- and Tally Youngblood can’t wait to turn. But her new friend Shay has doubts about turning and decides to leave for “The Smoke”, an encampment of people who believe the surgery is harmful and unnatural. After Shay leaves, Tally is given a choice: find Shay and betray her and everyone in The Smoke, or never turn Pretty. While Tally is trying to decide, she learns something about the society she grew up in, something frightening. Uglies, a world where anyone normal is ugly, is a fantastic book that I recommend for just about anyone.
