    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
    What made the experience of listening to Uglies the most enjoyable?

    I like the story and the characters. I had a hard time listening for a bit and then got used to the narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how our modern social norms are distorted and exaggerated. It really makes me think about the way I see myself and others. I find myself being hard on people and hard on myself sometimes. This book made me more kind to myself and others. I realize that our views and judgements of things are sometime skewed.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I did get used to the narrator. But it did take some time. The nasal voice of Shay made me think of the obnoxious voices we used to do as kids.
