Uglies – Scott Westerfeld

Tally is about to turn sixteen and about to turn pretty. In Tally’s world at 16 everyone has an operation that changes them from an ‘ugly’ to supermodel gorgeous and life becomes one big party. But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to be pretty and is willing to risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away Tally discovers that all is not pretty in Pretty Town. The authorities give her a choice, betray her friend or never turn pretty. Tally must decide.
‘Uglies’ is the first in a fascinating trilogy and is followed by ‘Pretties’ and ‘Specials’.
