Uglies: Shay’s Story by Scott Westerfeld

Published November 3, 2016 by Kaitlin Michelle

12731487

Goodreads Summary:

“This whole game is just designed to make us hate ourselves.”—Shay

Uglies told Tally Youngblood’s version of life in Uglyville and the budding rebellion against the Specials. Now comes an exciting graphic novel revealing new adventures in the Uglies world—as seen through the eyes of Shay, Tally’s rebellious best friend who’s not afraid to break the rules, no matter the cost.

A few months shy of her sixteenth birthday, Shay eagerly awaits her turn to become a Pretty—a rite-of-passage operation called “the Surge” that transforms ordinary Uglies into paragons of beauty. Yet after befriending the Crims, a group of fellow teens who refuse to take anything in society at face value, Shay starts to question the whole concept. And as the Crims explore beyond the monitored borders of Uglyville into the forbidden, ungoverned wild, Shay must choose between the perks of being Pretty and the rewards of being real.

My Thoughts:

I found this at the library and had no idea one of my favorite series, was turned into a graphic novel! *Grabby Hands* Remember Tally’s best friend Shay, who let’s face it, got Tally into everything, has her own story now!  A few months before Shay’s 16th birthday, Shay and her fellow Crims, are pulling pranks and generally living it up before the big surge (the surgery that turns you into a Pretty.) They explore the out of bounds areas and meet David.  This starts Shay’s desire not to have the surge.  The artwork left a lot to be desired.  Everyone looked way to similar, and in a story where diversity is such a big issue it doesn’t make a lot of sense to have the characters look the same.  Although this is a quick read I was disappointed it doesn’t really give you too much extra information that you didn’t get from the book series, so I don’t really feel like it was worth a purchase, especially since I didn’t like the art. Check this one out from the library.
