"Uglies" Novel Study

"Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld is the first book in Westerfeld's latest series. In the novel, it is standard procedure to have an operation when you are sixteen years old in order to make you beautiful. This novel takes readers on a journey of what happens when one group of teenagers decide that they want to keep their own faces, rather than receive the operation.

Within this novel study are end-of-chapter comprehension, sequencing, inferring and making connections activities. As well, graphic organizers and writing activities are included that will engage and motivate your students.

I recommend picking and choosing only the activities that are most relevant to the needs of your students, as doing every single activity included may cause your students to become disconnected from the excitement of reading this novel.
