I loved this book! It was the perfect blend of suspense and action. I also like how it has lots of cliff hangers.
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Reviewed by S.S., a rising 8th grader
This book is the first book of the Uglies Series. In a perfect society of beautiful people called pretties, one that is too fat or skinny or too tall or short is considered an ugly. But great luck to uglies like Tally Youngblood, turning sixteen will bring an operation for prettiness, and you'll be sent down the river to New Pretty Town, a place where all pretties live. But when Tally befriends Shay, an ugly that runs away from being pretty, Tally will need to find Shay to turn her in, in order to become pretty. Or else, she'll be an ugly for a lifetime... I liked this book because of the internal and external conflicts of Tally are perfectly set. And how Tally takes risks are refuses to take "no" for an answer.
