An open letter to Scott westerfeld,
I just want to say thank you. Thank you for making a book that a 13 year old me wouldn't have been caught reading. I remember I had just finished reading a super boring book in my English class book and I was like "I am never reading a book again" my teacher heard me and pointed at her private library in the class (which i always saw but never even looked at) and SAID "just because u don't like the class books doesn't mean you should stop reading. Just look around and you can borough any book from here."
I really just picked Uglies at random. The first thing i read was "IN A WORLD OF EXTREME BEAUTY, ANYONE NORMAL IS UGLY", so i took the book home. From the first sentence i knew i was never going to stop reading. "THE EARLY SUMMER SKY WAS THE COLOR OF CAT VOMIT", I smiled and i kept on reading it and finished it by the next day. I never stopped reading after that ^_^
Thank you Scott for making the uglies series, because while reading Pretties, a family friend real close to us was diagnosed with cancer and like Zane there wasn't much we could do. I read pretties and cried in specials. I had found a way to escape the stress and pain but Tally taught me to never give up, stay strong, and move on.
THANK YOU Sincerely from,
P.S = It took a few years but i finally have ALL the uglies books and i've re-read them 5 times over, and there ALWAYS on my top shelf! ^_^
