The book Uglies is a great start to a great series! I love this author becasue he puts so much work, detail, and time into his work. He is a great author! This book is a book about trying to survive in the wild. Without much civilization. But the twist to this book that makes it interesting is that Shay used to want to be a pretty really badly, but ever sense people told her the news about that it chages you drastically, she runs from the operation. She is basically living with all the other kids who are also running from the operation. This book deserves an A+!
