WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW
Parents need to know that Scott Westerfeld's Uglies is set in the future and deals with our culture's obsession with physical perfection and hedonism. There's some fighting and a minor character is killed, not seen. A gruesome operation is described. Girl characters especially are brave and stand up to an oppressive regime.
And one more for free if you buy the above two!
