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 stunning 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...

Review of UGLIES

I don’t really know what to say about this one. It was only ok for me, not terrible but not fantastic. Here’s what I don’t like about this series: Mostly all of the characters and the stupid dystopian world they live in. All I have to say is why? It’s like any other dystopia book out there! They don’t like the rules so they run away in the wild.Ta da! Sorry for the spoiler. And the reason Tally, the main character,goes into the wild? Because of a boy and to show up her friend. Yea, lame I know.

There are some parts I did kinda of like though. While I don’t like the dystopian world the author has created I like the idea of it. A world based on who looks prettiest. It’s a cool idea so the book doesn’t get one star like I wanted to give it. I’m trying to be a fair person here. Tally did get a little better as the book went on too so it wasn’t a completely horrible book. I suggest everyone should give it a chance and then decided if you like it or don’t. Don’t base it on some reviews you’ve read because there’s so many mixed feeling about this book.

So looks like it’s getting 3 out of 5 for effort. Good try.

“Perhaps the logical conclusion of everyone looking the same is everyone thinking the same.”
