To begin, the novel Uglies by Scott Westerfeld connects to 2017 because now mostly everyone is doing surgery to become pretty and changing their appearance in different ways. In my book my protagonist tally was being laughed at because she is ugly. Also In the book uglies it talked about how the uglies want to become beautiful because they are tired of being judged by people who are pretty. This shows that the prettys have more power over the uglies because the prettys can do whatever they want. The world can turn into dystopia because people are just wasting their money to turn pretty but at the end everyone will be the same. In 2017 the uglies don’t mean nothing in the world because they aren’t pretty. Furthermore, in the book ” Tally felt uglier every second she spent there. being laughed at by everyone she met wasn’t helping much”. This quote shows that people are splitting up into different groups because they are different. The uglies are being oppressed by the prettys because the pretty’s thin k that they have everything and the uglies cant have it. In conclusion the uglies shouldn’t be judged because of their looks.
