Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

My friend Amy's 13-year-old daughter finally finished Pretties so I could borrow it. Amy has read the whole series and says that this one is her favorite. I loved it.

Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted. But beneath all the fun—the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom—is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life—because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive.

I'm already about halfway through Specials. Even though it's called the Uglies Trilogy, apparently there's a fourth book called Extras.
