“I rate the book UGLIES with five stars! I loved the whole idea of adding new conflicts right in the middle of the story! I also really liked the thought the author put into the conflict of the story. I felt that at times I was a little lost only because of the weird way they introduced new conflict. May favorite scenes are when she arrives and stays at the smoke. I feel like the author could have added more detail to her journey traveling to the smoke. Tally’s ability to defend herself no matter what the cause, is a trait that I wish to acquire one day. I really do recommend this book to others because it is fairly easy to read and I didn’t find myself getting board of it while reading it. This book was great to read and I hope that who every reads it next really likes it as much as I did.”Emily S. wrote this review Thursday, October 31, 2013.

“ Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Uglies is based on a 16 year old girl named Tally Youngblood. When Tally was little, she was tricky! She would sneak out of her house with her friend Peris. They never got caught. As Tally was getting close to turning 16, All she wanted was to be a Pretty. The place she lived in was diffrent. there was two citys, One full with Pretty people, and the other filled with ugly people. Tally wanted to live in Prettyvill and party everynight! When her bestfriend Peris left at 16 to get his operation and be a pretty, Tally meet Shay. A girl her age. They were the same, exept Shay didn’t want to become a Pretty. Shay wanted all the opposite… On the day of their operation Shay disappeared.She went to a place called The Smoke. When Tally headed to the hospital Tally was prepared to become a pretty. But someone stopped her. Dr.Cable told Tally that in order for her to become a Pretty she has to get Shay back. Will Tally betray her best friend and become a Pretty? Or not betray her but stay ugly forever?
I love how in the beginning of the story, Tally really wants to be a pretty. It was all she ever wanted! Then at the end of the book, Tallys made changes alot and she never wants to be a pretty. I admire Tally Youngblood for being so brave.
I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars because its just so interesting how they explain the robotic things in their lives! If you like Dystopian and adventurous book then you will definitely love this one!”

“I really liked this book; it had an extremely unique plot. I also really liked the characters, and they're very "round," and don't lack dimension. I don't like books where the character doesn't really change at all. The characters in this book go through a good sum of character development, and this helps make the entire story more interesting.”Brittany Jansen wrote this review Wednesday, October 30, 2013.

“Tally is about to turn sixteen, in just a few weeks she will become attractive and beautiful. Until Tally's new best friend Shay doesn't want to do the operation. In the other hand, Tally wants to become pretty to see her old best friend Peris who became pretty before her.
So it will be hard for Tally to betrayed her new best friend that helped her survive , or her old best friend that shared a lot of memories with each other. One of those choices will change Tally's life forever.
Uglies is so absolutely, incredible! I was on the edge of my seat dying to see what will happen next. my rating for this book is a four because it had a lot of adventure but a little bit of action.so if you are one of those people who loves adventurous books, Uglies is the book for you.”
