★★★★.5 4.5/5

This book is about a girl named Tally Youngblood who’s waiting for the day she turns 16. On this day, she’ll go through a long procedure and surgery to become Pretty and live into PrettyTown instead of living in Uglyville. Being Pretty was a beautiful moment in the Uglies’ lives.

But when Tally meets a girl named Shay, she realizes not a lot of people see being beautiful as a blessing. Shay isn’t sure she wants to become pretty. When Shay runs away, Tally learns a whole new side of the pretty world that isn’t as pretty as she thought it would be. The authorities give Tally a choice; find her friend and betray her or never turn pretty at all. Tally’s choice would affect her life forever.

This book was actually one big adventure. The beginning was kind of slow which I understood because the character probably wanted the readers to understand the characters and the new world that we’ve never imagined before.

It’s really crazy when you read a book set in a dystopia, because it’s a different world then what we have now.

Even though, this book is mostly adventures all throughout, there’s romance and friendship that Tally experiences which are really interesting and amazing.

I feel like the character really evolves throughout the story while she starts learning new things about the Prettytown and people known as Specials.

If you’re looking for a book with adventures and crazy schemes that the characters create, then I definitely recommend this book.
