Caleb said:
Uglies by Scott Wethersfeld is a really good book. It takes place in a futuristic dystopian society. Everybody turns "Pretty" when they become 16, and they get a huge surgery makeover. Everybody under 16 is "Ugly" Tally, the main character, is 15 and turns Pretty in a month and is SUPER excited. She then meets a girl named Shay, who has the same birthday as Tally, and Shay runs away. Authorities face Tally with a decision: Find Shay and turn her in, or never become pretty. The choice she makes will change her world forever.

I have read many teen books that are really bad, so I was surprised how much I liked this book. The supporting characters weren’t developed much, but all the characters were still interesting and the plot was better than many books I’ve read. The book really got into the culture of now-a-days and the fascination of being beautiful and looking young forever. And anyone who doesn’t have the mindset of trying to be beautiful is considered to be stupid and bad. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading the sequel.

I love this book!! But, it's not one of those books where you can just read the first one and be done. no. you HAVE to read Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras. If you don't, then Shay, Peris, Tally, you'll never know what happens :D I LOVE IT!

Filled with suspense and with a little romance. You will not be able to set this down.
