Wow, wow, wow! A complete sit on the edge of your seat book. By reading the back I thought I had it all figured out but as the book progressed it got deeper and deeper and more uncertainty was formed and I love that.
Just like in The Hunger Games and Delirium, Uglies has a very strong female lead that you find yourself rooting for. Tally is just like any other 16 year old...she is desperate to turn 16 so she can be pretty. She is tired of being considered an ugly. She hates her eyes and her hair and her face and just wants to grow up and move to New Prettyville where everything is better and her best friend Peris lives now. But things don't go as planned for Tally, she meets Shay and everything changes for her. She finds out things she never wanted to know, does things she never thought she would do and makes choices she never thought she would have to make. The book is a nonstop, action packed story about finding out what you thought was true may not be the case and figuring out how to live your life afterwards.
Westerfeld does such a good job in writing this that you feel everyone of the characters emotions and the changes they go through. I'm seriously so ecstatic that I read this book as it was fantastic. Can't wait to read the rest of the series. If you are a fan of The Hunger Games and Delirium, this book is for you.
