Uglies: Shay's Story

Westerfeld, Scott. Uglies: Shay's Story. Del Rey, 2012.

This is the story of Shay, a character in Scott Westerfeld's original Uglies series. While the original story is told from Tally's point of view, this version follows Shay, one of Tally's friends. I didn't like Shay much in the original story, but seeing the events from her point of view in this book helped me to like her a bit more. I am certain this book will be popular with my patrons who are fans of dypstopian lit, as well as those who can't get enough of graphic novels.

Recommended for: teens, tweens, fans of Westerfeld's original Uglies series.
Red Flags: None
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
