Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

September 6th, 2005 by Laura Moncur in Literature


I just finished a book called Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. It’s a young adult science fiction book and I found it entirely enjoyable. The book is based on hard sci-fi, but the concepts are explained well enough that it easy to understand.

The heroine, Tally, is about to turn sixteen. When she does, she will undergo a series of surgeries to make her “pretty” because right now, she’s “ugly” just like every other child under sixteen. Everyone gets to turn pretty at their sixteenth birthday. Peris, her friend, already turned pretty a month ago and she is dying to join him on the other side of the river…

Here are the quotes that I was able to glean from this book:
