To begin, the novel “Uglies” by Scott Westerfeld connects to 2o17 because they both involve with separation. In the book, they are separate by “pretties,” people who are 16 and older and has gotten their plastic surgery, or “uglies,” people who are about to turn 16 or younger and has not have their plastic surgery yet. The “pretties” has more freedom such as staying up late at night and going to parties unlike the “uglies” who has to sleep at a certain time and can’t go to parties. There is another group which are the “runaways,” people who escape the town and go somewhere because they think that having plastic surgery isn’t nessasary. All of these group connects to people who came here, the United States, to live here for a better place. The “pretties” are the people who has born here in the United States, the “uglies” are the people of color and are illgeal to be here in the United States, and lastly we have the “runways” who are the people of color who has move to the United States to live in a better place. Now they both have people who are separating people by who they are, “uglies” and “pretties” are being separated by the Special Circumstance and us people by races, we are being separated by Donald Trump. In conclusion, it is clear, the two societies are similar.
