The first book in Scott Westerfeld's international bestselling Uglies series - over six million copies of the series have been sold worldwide!

In Tally Youngblood’s world, looks matter. At sixteen everyone undergoes a transformation from “Ugly” to “Pretty” and is catapulted into a high-tech paradise where the only thing that matters is having a great time and you never have to worry or think for yourself. Tally can’t wait.

But then, with just weeks to go to Tally’s birthday, her friend Shay runs away and the ugly truth about the world of the Pretties starts to reveal itself. What if the beauty of the Pretties utopia really is just skin deep?

‘Naughty children, from Max in Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, to Tally in Scott Westerfeld's Uglies trilogy, have the imagination and energy to go beyond convention.’ The Times
‘This exciting story makes you realise how important it is not to judge people by appearances.’ Newcastle Upon Tyne Journal
‘This book is a real thrill-ride and the world utterly convincing.’ Trashionista.com
