I definitely wasn't so sure about this book in the beginning, but I am not going to be able to pass up the next book in the series! This one didn't capture me completely at first; it took 100 pages or so to really get me involved. It has the feel of Twilight, where a short story just cannot be told. It has nothing to do with vampires or anything of that nature, but more a futuristic feel is in the works. The descriptions make me want to visit Uglyville and not New Pretty Town. It's a good comparison to how we treat our celebrities, even though the uglies in this novel are able to see the Rusties (our human race, now completely revamped), and they think that they are hideous. My favorite is the model revelation. This is a teen novel, so it's pretty innocent and straight-forward. It's an easy read, and it's pretty entertaining, even if slightly predictable.
