A world where once you turn 16 you must undergo an operation from Ugly to Pretty. Such a process, such a society. This book was something i never expected and I loved every minute that I was reading this book.

If those who are born Ugly must go through an operation to become Pretty, a lot of people in society wouldn't object. This book really makes you look at yourself and how you should really appreciate the true beauty you're given to yourself. Scott Westerfeld brings out such an elaborate story in such a society that puts looks on a high platform and envelops everyones lives around it. It really shows how modern society happens to be... how the conscious though of "pretty" can manipulate thoughts, outlooks and who we are and what we become. The fascination with beauty consumes everything.

Good Points
such a creative idea for a dystopian society
