Description

Tally can't wait to turn sixteen and become Pretty. Sixteen is the magic number that brings a transformation 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 worse 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.

Review quote

Vivid, relevant and exhilarating dystopia which somehow manages to be thought-provoking and wicked good fun at the same time. It's official: I'm an Uglies fangirl. * I Was a Teenage Book Geek Blog * This book is a real thrill-ride and the world utterly convincing. * Trashionista.com * This exciting story makes you realise how important it is not to judge people by appearances. * Newcastle Upon Tyne Journal * Westerfeld introduces thought-provoking issues. * Publishers Weekly * With a beginning and ending that pack hefty punches, this introduction to a dystopic future promises an exciting series. * Kirkus * Fast paced, exciting and thought-provoking. * The Bookseller's Choice * The longing for fairy-tale beauty has never looked so sinister. -- Amanda Craig * The Times *
