Another book post. Brace yourself.
The series revolve around a world where everyone turns pretty at the age of sixteen. The world I’m talking about is hundreds of centuries after our time, when people no longer use petroleum, and using fire is considered absurd. However, [spoiler: highlight to view] lesions are injected into Pretties’ mind when undergoing the operation to turn them pretty. The lesions are some kind of bugs to make you feel all Paris Hilton and makes you enjoy the pretty life, thus arguments don’t exist between Pretties. Tally Youngblood, an Ugly, couldn’t wait to turn sixteen, but soon finds out about the secret about being a Pretty, and tries to stop the operations from continuing. [spoiler] But turns into a Special, a government who protects the Pretty world from outside danger. In other words: insert the lesions themselves and stops people who finds out about it.
Definitely worth a read.
