Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Uglies is a Science Fiction book by Scott Westerfeld, and has 432 pages. The setting of the story is realistic because it is something that could happen in the future. The protagonist is Tally Youngblood because she is trying to help people from Special Circumstances. The main conflict is when you turn 16 you get an operation to become "pretty". However, what people don't know is that it also changes the way you think. The main conflict is resolved when Tally is sent to a place called the Smoke where people who don't want to become pretty run away to. Special Circumstances sends Tally there as a spy and once she gets there she is to activate a tracking device on a necklace she was sent with. Tally decides to instead help the Smoke and with some help, she gets Dr.Cable's information to reverse the operation. My favorite character is Tally because she tries to help everyone.
