I had originally read Uglies 5 years ago. In fact, I read the whole series—so I knew what was going to happen. Because of The October Club, I thought I’d read it again. After all, I was younger, maybe I’d think about it differently, right? Except I didn’t. I still feel about it the same way I did so many years ago. My book edition is from 2005, so the blurb and cover might be different than others.
|What my book cover looks like.|
Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can’t wait. Not for her license—for turning pretty. In Tally’s world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there.But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to be pretty. She’d rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world—and it isn’t very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.
Note: I will most definitely continue reading the series once I’m done with The October Club, though I might not put any more reviews. But who knows? I might.
My video review on this book will be up Monday, Oct. 8th.
