Picture this: you live in a world where everyone who's normal is ugly. That's what it's like for Tally Youngblood and she can't wait for what's coming up.... Her sixteenth birthday. Where Tally lives when you turn sixteen you have an operation that makes you stunningly gorgeous, and that is all that Tally has ever wanted. Everything is great and on schedule when one night someone new comes into her life and shows her that being pretty isn't everything. Tally soon has to make the decision to either become perfect and gorgeous or remain ugly.......... FOREVER. Now I'm not a reader at all and I loved this book and I am currently reading the third of its series. To find out what Tally's decision was do what I did and become hooked on this amazing series.

I read both of these books and they were really great. I think it might be one of the best books I have ever read. Both of these books are about a little girl named
Winnie. The little girl reminds me of myself. We are very similar
in different ways. These books truly are some of the best books I have
ever read and I encourage you to read them.
