Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she is completely popular. It is everything she has ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun, the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom, is the nagging sense that something is wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what is wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life-because the athorities do not intend to let anyone with this information survive.

The sequal to Scott Westerfeld's Uglies has finally come. The book is as good as good as the first. In this continuation of the series, Tally has agreed to test out an experimental drug that is said to cure the changes made to your brain durring the pretty operation. Tally is faced with the fear of the unknown, will she dare to take the risk of the new drug to save herself and her boyfriend?

The novel will be greatly enjoyed by science fiction fans, with its gadgetry and futuristic setting. Scott Westerfeld has once again asked provocative questions about the meaning of beauty, individuality, and bravery. You will be able to sink your teeth into this novel and read it for hours on end.
