Scootsa1000′s #CBR4 Review #6: Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
The Uglies tells the tale of Tally Youngblood, who is almost 16 and can’t wait to turn pretty. In this futuristic dystopia, all citizens are given a special operation at 16, which turns them flawless and beautiful — symmetrical and perfect in every way. Literally nothing from their old appearance survives. These children are taught from birth that the way they look is wrong (they are even called Uglies), and that life will be great once they turn pretty.
