Uglies

Uglies - Scott Westerfeld
This book started reaaaaaaally slow. I already knew what was going to happen in the first 6 chapters. The synopsis told me, nosy synopsis.
In this future, Tally is waiting to become a "pretty" by obligatory plastic surgery, because it's scientifically proven that beatiful people can easily leave in peace with each other.

Now, I sit back and wonder: How could I not see the trouble coming?

Just before the operation, her friend Shay runs away and Tally has to find and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all.

At this point, the book really begins, developing the sorrounding dystopian world and letting us see how the people can get too used to a particulary way of living and being told what to think.

I enjoyed:
º The glimpse of how people from a distant future could look back on us.
º The believable reactions of a girl trying to come out as better as possible from a bad situation.
º Not entirely predictable.

I didn't quite like:
º Weak development of romance (it may be ok for some people, not for ME)

I would entirely recommend it for 10-11 years old children.
