When I first read Uglies I was amazed. I hadnt expected a book to be unique within its subject area. Yes world domination as well as trying to enforce a Utopia but trust me this book is something you havent seen before. Beautiful insight from the young Tally Youngblood and by her you feel you are there flying on the hover board with her. You feel why. The adventures continue in Prettys and Specials and trust me if you are the type of person who cant put a book down once your hooked this is it. Save your money and buy the collection. Youre not gonna want to stop reading this. However beware of the fourth book. Its not....as special as the other ones. A waste of story really. The first three books are the stories you want to get lost in.
