My review for, Uglies


REVIEW:
Heroes, not Zeroes.
This book reminded me of the show, Heroes. All the characters had various powers from seseeing through anothers' eyes to changing the mood of a crowd. With these powers, they tried using them for the greater good. In this case though, it was to save their own from the mess he was in. Still, seeing them use their power was exciting to read about, no matter the reasoning. 
The outcome was everything I wanted but yet nothing what I expected. I know that doesn't make sense, but if you read it, it will make sense. 
Paranormal fans will definitely eat this one up!

4.5/5

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
