“Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” Dystopian week of reviews day 2

   For day 2 of Dystopian week of reviews I have for you… drumroll please… Uglies!!!!!! By Scott Westerfeld! I am all kinds of excited about this one! This is becoming a movie! So if you are anything like me and want to read a book before the movie crowd takes over the stage… do it now! At this point in time there are well over 3 million books just in print alone. It amazes me too because I found this book on wattpad…… for free! These books are great for teenagers! Its more of a female oriented dystopian.
   When children are born, they are born ugly. As they grow they anticipate the day they turn 16. At the age of 16 boys and girls receive an operation in which they become pretties. Their faces get a symmetrical transformation, lips become fuller and everythinng is lifted, tucked and tightened. After their surgery they move to Prettyville, where they live lifestyles of the rich and famous. But is this the life Tally is cut out for?
  I think this goes above and beyond regular dystopian…. I think it teaches a valuable lesson in what beauty has done, is doing and can do to the world.
   *Pros* Artistically written. Easy to read.
   *Cons* a different type of new world slang sometimes gets a little confusing.
