Title: The Uglies (#1-4)

Author: Scott Westerfield

Book One Synopsis:

Tally Youngblood is about to turn sixteen, and she can’t wait for the operation that turns everyone from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to party. But new friend Shay would rather hoverboard to “the Smoke” and be free. Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world and it isn’t very pretty. The “Special Circumstances” authority Dr Cable offers Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

This is one of those books that I picked up as a new YA reader, and was absolutely hooked! I LOVE Sci-Fi books that are futuristic science, but not outer-space-type (I love that too, but not always as much). The ideas and morals behind this book are incredible, and the writing style and characters? Just “bubbly!”. Oh, gosh. I can’t believe I just said (typed?) that. Anyway, if you haven’t yet read Uglies, I highly recommend that you do. It’s amazing. So much fun. I loved them a lot.

Join in on the fun! What’s your Throwback Thursday book of the week?
