Did you enjoy the story? Why or why not? Tally, an Ugly is waiting to turn 16 so she can become a Pretty and have an awesome life. When her friend (Shay) runs away to the Smoke, she is met by the Specials before she is about to turn pretty. They want her to go find the Smoke, to find Shay and send a signal from her locket so the Specials can find the Smoke and "rescue" Shay and her friends.

I feel for Tally about wanting to become pretty at first so she can have a fun life and look
