it was amazing

I thought that this book was really good. I never thought that i would actually like a book EVER, but something about this book made everything different. i normally don't like fairy tale books. They just don't interest me. I learned a lot of things in this book that wasn't said. It was just shown. This book is sort of like something that could actually happen or a place could end up like this. This book is the 2 book of the series.

Tally (main character in the story) tells the story. She turns into a "pretty" which is someone pretty much getting a lot of plastic surgery every where is be "perfect." Then their were people called "uglies." They were people that looked like us! They weren't perfect. It was sad that in this book pretty is having a lot of plastic surgery to be pretty.

Zane (another main character in the story) is pretty much tally's boyfriend. Tally has a lot a boyfriends or people that she really likes. Near the end tally is mixed up with all the guys she has ever liked and she has to decide which one she would like more and wanna be with. Anyways, Zane is also a pretty. He is perfect to tally. Even though they got into a lot of trouble together all the time.

Tally and Zane got in so much trouble together, that they had to get these bracelets that are metal and don't come off unless you have a key or something. They go to the main people that can kill you or send you to some other place if your doing something wrong. So, they put the bracelets on so they can see anything they are doing, and listen to them. So, tally and zane never really talked at all.

Zane and Tally took this thing called the cure that maddy (from the smoke) gave them. When they turn you pretty something happens to your brain so that you think "bubbly" all the time and your always happy and never down or anything related to that. So, maddy made the cure so that you can kill the brain leasons that make you like that. Tally was suppose to take both the pills but, she didn't know that. One of the pills did what is was suppose to but, the other kept on killing the leasons until most of the brain was gone.

They try to escape to go to the smoke to find maddy so they can find out what is really wrong. Tally went to fair than the others ad had a long journey back to find the other where they were suppose to all met up. Tally finally gets there 2 weeks later or 3. David meets up there. They go back to the smoke were zane and the other crims.
