Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

            I was amazed by the "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld. Tally is a 15 almost 16 year old girl. In this society they undergo a surgery when they are 16 that makes them "pretty". They tell children beginning at a small age that they cannot be pretty until they go through with the surgery. I find that cruel.They are children and children need love and acceptance for who they are. Each child/person is beautiful in their own way. Aside from personal beliefs and back to the book, Shay Tally's new friend runs away. The special circumstances portion of the government gives her a choice. Betray and reveal Shay or be ugly forever...
            One thing I absolutely love that Scott does is make Tally feel beautiful without turning pretty. That is something many people can relate to. Accepting who they are or loving themselves and their body. Loving how you look without being vain. I would definitely recommend this book to all. If you liked "The Hunger Games," or "Divergent," then you would love "The Uglies."
            You can get it HERE to get your copy of "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld on the Book Depository. The website offers great deals on all the latest books. I hope you love it. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
