Everyone is Ugly. Until they turn 16 and have the operation to make the Pretty.
There are no questions in Tally’s mind about the operation. She can’t wait until she turns 16. Her life will really begin then.
Then she meets Shay. And Shy doesn’t even want the operation. She wants to go to the Outside and see what the government is so eager to hide. But why would you trade a chance to be Pretty for the Outside? Tally sure wouldn’t…
Until she has to make a choice. And whatever she chooses, there’s no going back.
