Tally and Shay’s 16th Birthday (Sept 9)

Uglies book.jpgTally and Shay became friends shortly before their 16th birthdays (on Sept 9th) when they were supposed to have mandatory cosmetic surgery to make them Pretty and afterward live in New Pretty Town and have a life of parties and fun and glamour. Instead, Shay runs away to Smoke, a haven for people who refuse to believe such concepts of beauty. Tally follows Shay shortly after but with… mixed motives.

  • Sneak into a party.
  • Hoverboard (Ok…skateboard).
  • Read a fashion magazine.
