Review of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

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.

                                                                      About Uglies
Scott Westerfeld is a unique Young Adult Fiction writer. I came across him while reading the Uglies Series. Originally a trilogy but because of its great success later a quartet really. This series deals with lots of Science Fiction elements. It has a more realistic touch in the
 fiction genre. He has a got this sense of common language and the tone of his stories is similar to watching Star Wars, The Matrix, Terminator, and Science Fiction films in book form with his own style of writing. All his stories are like this because Scott Westerfeld also has other books besides this series. They are fantastic as well. He weaves good stories that are really compelling and when they end they are very grounded.

                                                  Overall: Amazing read!                                 
                                            Genre:Young Adult, Science Fiction
