Elements in Science Fiction
By Peta Butcher
~What is Science Fiction
~Plot Summary
Don't judge a book by it's cover-
Everyon who is a pretty, thinks that the uglies, aren't as good as them, and wont be until they turn pretty.

Environment: The early summer sky
"The colour of cat vomit......... Bottomles and cold"
"A noise thundered to lfe on Tally's left.........The smoke suddenly cleared.........
Atmosphere: Tense
"Tally had to get to the river. the water was the only place safe from the rampaging fire"
Quote: "Either Tally infiltrated The Smoke and betray Shay, or she'd be an ugly for life"
Nobodys Perfect-
The pretties think that they are perfect now because they have been turned pretty, but they think that partyting is something you do 24/7. Where as the uglies, have fun, but do it in different ways, every time.
Quote:"Turn her from a repellent ugly to a stunning pretty"
Quote: "In a world of extreme beauty anyone normal is ugly"
This is important becuase, it tells us what Tally has to choose from, even though she wants to be pretty, but at the same time she doesn't want to betray her new friend.
How does this book fit into the science-fiction genre?
The book 'Uglies' by Scott Westerfeld fits into the science fiction genre through the use of advanced technology and the possibility to turn people pretty. The rooms and elevators in this book, respond to the charcters commands, but only if they have an interface ring. other wise it wont resond to the command, the characters in this book, are also able to ride on hoverboards to get to their destinations. Another reason it fits into this genre is that you can undergo an operation to be turned pretty, because aparently being pretty is everything.
