The first installment of Scott Westerfeld's New York Times bestselling and award-winning Uglies series--a global phenomenon that started the dystopian trend.

Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. In just a few weeks she'll have the operation that will turn her from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty. And as a pretty, she'll be catapulted into a high-tech paradise where her only job is to have fun.

But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to become a pretty. 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 a choice: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. Tally's choice will change her world forever.

Our customer reviews

I read this about 3 or 4 years ago, and I REALLY enjoyed it, it was intresting, and scary at the same time, not in a horror way, but just like most Dystopian-type books, it brings you into this realm of "what if the government really becomes like this?" It would be terrible, and frightnening, and oppressive. I think the intresting thing about this book is that at first Tally wants to be "Pretty." It's her dream, it's intresting to see how she develops into the same thinking as the "Smokies." I never got to read Pretties becuase our library didn't carry it, then I found this website, I love you Book Depository!show more
