The first installment of Scott Westerfeld's andlt;Iandgt;New York Times andlt;/Iandgt;bestselling seriesand#8212;a global phenomenon that started the dystopian trend.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;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.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Tallyand#8217;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 sheand#8217;s reminded, she has a hard time listening. And what littleand#8217;s left of the old Tally is further compromised in Specials, because Tally has been transformed into a fierce fighting machine. But when sheand#8217;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 beautyand#8230;.

Synopsis:

Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that?

Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. Not for her license — for turning pretty. In Tally's world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there.

But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world — and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

Synopsis:

A few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime, a cultural renaissance swept the world. Now popularity rules. Everyone craves fameand#8212;and fifteen-year-old Aya Fuse is no exception. But her face rank of 451,396 is so low, sheand#8217;s a total nobody. An extra. Ayaand#8217;s only chance to escape extra-land is to find a big story to kickand#8212;something wild and unexpected. Then Aya meets a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks. She knows she can propel herself into celebrity; but at what cost? Thereand#8217;s more at stake than Aya realizes in this spectacular conclusion to the Uglies series.

Synopsis:

A fresh repackaging of the bestselling Uglies boks...the series that started the whole dystopian trend!

Charles Kerchner, October 21, 2014 (view all comments by Charles Kerchner)
Excellent YA book. Good marks for the fact that the world Westerfield designs is very believable, isn't overly depressing and doesn't have kids killing or being killed. Cool tech like solar powered hoverboards, super efficient water purifiers, nano-glue, super pranks, etc. Easily identifiable to any teenager who wrestles with their own self image, doubts, and coming of age. Can't wait to read the next one.
