I picked up this Scott Westerfeld book after he sent me a humorous tweet on Twitter.
Knowing nothing about the book, I flipped it over, read the blurb and was hooked.
Here are the basics:
Uglies is set in a world in which everyone has an operation when they turn sixteen, making them supermodel beautiful. Big eyes, full lips, no one fat or skinny. You might think this is a good thing, but it’s not. Especially if you’re one of the Smokies, a bunch of radical teens who’ve decided they want to keep their own faces. (How anti-social of them.)
The premise intrigued me and once I started this YA novel the pages turned themselves.
Loved Tally's braveness, her strength, her convictions.
Loved her developing relationship with David.
And the ending had me picking up the next installment, Pretties, immediately.
There's nothing like discovering new authors you know you'll revisit time and time again.
I'm really interested in reading Scott Westerfeld's adult novels now.
