The Uglies series has more than 3 million books in print, has been translated into twenty-seven languages, and spent more than fifty weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Now all four books feature fresh new covers and will reach an even wider audience.
Tally's adventures begin in Uglies, where she learns the truth about what life as a Pretty really means. She rebels against the surgery that will make her a Pretty, but ultimately succumbs. In Pretties, Tally has forgotten all about her Ugly life, and when she's reminded, she has a hard time listening. And what little's left of the old Tally is further compromised in Specials, because Tally has been transformed into a fierce fighting machine. But when she's offered a chance to forever improve civilization, will she be able to overcome her brainwashing? The answer is evident years later in Extras, after the Pretty regime has ended. Boundless human creativity, new technologies, and old dangers have been unleashed upon the world. But fame and popularity can be just as dangerous as extreme beauty....

I had heard about this series from my niece who is a freshman in college. She didn't give much detail, but knowing my love of The Hunger Games Series, mentioned the Uglies Trilogy (I don't know why it's a trilogy when there are 4 books...). I am enthralled with young adult literature and decided to check it out. The writing style reminds me of Stephenie Meyer - easy to read, not a lot of substance. I'm not saying that's a bad thing at all - some books are better that way. As the story begins, I would have preferred more background story as to why they are living the way they are and how they got this dystopian society to work. Today's society tends to find itself focused on appearance which has quite a lot of affect on people whether we admit it or not and often aids in decisions whether subconsciously or consciously. The goal of the society in this book is to elimate this problem and make everyone societally "pretty" at age 16. As one could guess, not everything is as good as it seems, secrets are revealed, rebellion is started, etc. It took me quite a while, probably half the book to find myself invested in the characters to the point where I cared what happened to them and wanted to know what was going to happen next. By the end of the book, I couldn't put it down, and of course, the ending left me wanting more!
