Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that?

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Uglies Not much closure in this one since it’s the start of a series, but there’s quite a bit of action, and I really enjoyed the heroine. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the story and feared that dystopian world I loved the story and how well it was written, it truly transported me to this dystopian world, yet, I feared it because I would not want to live what the main character (Tally) goes through. I even purchased the rest of the series and am eagerly reading them. I definitely recommend this series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uglies Really good lots of description threw out the novel. I love tally change of heart at the end and how shay was the one to turn pretty instead of her great twist.
