Book Nine: Uglies

Barnes and Noble's Description:

Written by: Scott Westerfeld

Description: Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. Not for her license -- for turning 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. In just a few weeks Tally will be there.
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 -- and it 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 Thoughts: Ummm...yeah what do I say? I hated this book for the most part...although there were parts I liked. I am not sure why I gave it a chance, I guess just to have something to read. The whole ''have to be pretty'' thing really annoyed me, especially since it's a teen series. I definitely will not be reading the rest in the series. Sorry Scott Westerfeld but you failed.

My Grade: F
