Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Tally’s life doesn’t begin, in her opinion, until she turns sixteen. When she turns sixteen, she will undergo a mandatory, life-changing series of brutal operations, and be spat out the other side of it fully transformed from an Ugly to a Pretty. Pretties live glorious lives of celebrity, luxury… and complete blind complacency. When Tally becomes friends with Shay, the first Ugly she has ever met who doesn’t want to become pretty, all hell breaks loose and Tally finds herself on the run and faced with a terrible decision. This is a Young Adult scifi like no other, and the world the author paints is a living, breathing nightmare of colour and beauty.
