Uglies, Pretties, Specials - Scott Westerfeld

It is a series of three books. They are set in the future with a Sci-Fi theme. In the future, when they reach the age of sixteen, everyone has an operation that turns them from an ugly (a normal person) into a pretty. The story starts when the main character, Tally Youngblood, is fifteen and waiting impatiently for her birthday. But, when she becomes friends with another ugly called Shay, Tally is forced into the wild and she learns the terrible secret about the operation. With her new friends, Tally battles with the city but she can’t tell which side she’s on when people keep messing with her head.

It is an exciting story full of action and adventure. It has suspense and it’s even a little sad sometimes as Tally struggles to find who she is, save the world and protect the people she loves all at the same time. It is a great series and I loved the adventure.

There is a fourth book called Extras which is set slightly later and stars a girl called Aya. There was a sneak peek at the end of Specials and I would love to read it.
