Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
406 pages

What is no one had the advantage for being extra pretty? What if no one had the disadvantage of being ugly? Jobs, elected offices, friends, everything was based on the person themselves, and not the way they looked? It seems great on the surface...everyone has cosmetic surgery on their 16th birthday, and everybody looks basically the same. But everything is different about that person. Would it be worth it?
Tally is nearing her sixteenth birthday, and cannot wait for her surgery so she can finally be pretty. But her alliance with the rebelious Shay may cost her in a big way. Can she break the promise she made to her friend...can she give up her 'pretty' life for that promise.
Loved this book! (Seemed like Delirium was pretty close to this?)
