The Uglies is a Great book by Scott Westerfeld. The story is a very interesting idea. You see, Tally's friend, Peris, just got made "pretty" and Tally feels lonely when she meets Shay. Shay is very adventurous and teaches tally to hoverboard. One day Shay runs away to a place called the smoke. Special Circumstances notices that Shay is missing and wants Tally to lead them to the smoke. I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
