    Tally Youngblood is quickly approaching her 16th birthday and the mandatory pretty-making surgery that accompanies it. But Tally isn't sure if she wants to be a placidly happy Pretty. When a top secret organization threatens her with remaining Ugly forever, she reluctantly spies on the rebels who have refused the surgery. They think it changes more than just looks and are working on a cure. But they need someone to become Pretty to test it out.

    Story

    I loved the story, although I never felt as though Tally was quite the heroine she is made out to be. She was pushed around and coercerced into doing everything, whereas I would have liked to see her be more assertive, brave and adventurous on her own. I do like the concepts the book implies about our society and where we are heading, both environmentally and with plastic surgery being used more frequently for purely cosmetic reasons. The story was well written and a great listen no matter what I say or complain about though, and I enjoyed the whole series and was never tempted to stop due to lags in the plot line.
