Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
The first in a new trilogy in a book that is a cross between The Giver and Among the Hidden.
In the first book, Tally Youngblood is anxiously waiting for her 16th birthday. On this day, she will have an operation to make her "Pretty". She will have the life she has always dreamed of having- a life of partying and being with all the right people. But, when Tally meets Shay- she is suddenly presented with a whole new way of looking at life. Tally starts questioning what she has always believed and finds herself fighting back against the established way of things with very interesting results.
