It was published in 2005 and its sequels are Pretties, Specials, and Extras. In Uglies, It is 300 years in the future and sixteen-year-old Tally Youngblood is eagerly awaiting her birthday when she will receive an operation that will make her a Pretty. Once a Pretty, she will live on Pretty Island and her life will be one continuous party. Nothing wrong with that, right? The series' covers were revamped in 2011 and it was recently announced that Westerfeld will return to the world with a new series called The Imposters.
