Book #27: Uglies

Yes, I'm reading some more Scott Westerfeld. Uglies is the first book in his "Pretties" triology. Fortunately the third book just came out, because this one ended on a pretty serious "this is the plan, now let's get started"-style cliffhanger and I have the feeling that I'm going to get antsy if I don't keep plowing through the whole series. (I've been deliberately not-reading the 12th book of the Series of Unfortunate Events because I know it's going to end on a terrible cliffhanger and the last book won't be out until October.)

Anyway, Uglies is set in a far-future where everyone gets an operation at age 16 that turns them into a super-model looking "Pretty". But is there more to the operation than just the looks...? (Well, of course there is. It'd be a pretty dull triology otherwise.) Oh, and hoverboard chases.
