Book Review: Uglies

Imagine a world where you couldn’t be beautiful until you turn sixteen.  As soon as you hit your birthday, the only meaning of your life is having as much fun as possible and stay bubbly.  This is the world of fifteen-year-old Tally Youngblood.  As a mere Ugly, she dreams of the life of the Pretties, of not having a care in the world.  This is until she meets a new friend, Shay.  Shay is a rebel, and wishes to leave behind the high-tech stereotype the world has become, in favor of the wild.  When Shay goes missing, Tally must choose between being Pretty to the world, or staying pretty to her friends.  

I would recommend this book (and the rest of the fabulous series) to any lovers of futuristic science fiction or action/ adventure.
