can't wait to turn sixteen and become Pretty. Sixteen is the magic
number that brings a transformation from a repellant 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.
