2. The Uglies Series

(Your reaction) Thank you!

The "Uglies Series" written by Scott Westerfeld is another Dystopian series with a unique societal structure. When everyone in this world turns sixteen, they are forced to undergo an operation that turns them from a repellent "ugly" into a stunningly attractive "pretty." However, the operation creates lesions in the brain that prevents dispute, anger, creativity, and wanting to be different. People of the town thought this was a good thing though, because it would prevent war and anger. The main character Tally is about to turn sixteen and is excited to become a "pretty" until she meets another "ugly" named Shay. Shay tells her of a rebel group that has a hidden refuge and Tally slowly learns about a whole new side of the pretty world that isn't very pretty! There are four books to the series which include "Uglies," "Pretties," "Specials," and "Extras."
