Did you read the book?
1. The title "Uglies" means that it is about the escapades of an Ugly.
2. Most of the action is in the Smoke, a secret rural settlement with crude barracks and buildings, lots of campfires.
3. One trait is gullibility. Tally actually thinks that she can go to the smoke for Dr. Cable and then she will be left alone. Another is that she has wacked out priorities. She thinks that being pretty, even after all Shay has told her, is worth betraying her best friend. A third is that she is resourceful. She managed to survive the "attack" of the rangers by hiding in the water.
will send more later!

Tally = conflicted. She wants to be pretty, and wants to be ugly. Wants to help Shay, wants to help Dr. C. Etc.

hmm + curious... she might try hard to deny her curiousity, but eventually it always gets the better of her.

I would say she is somewhat of a free spirit. a gilr who is down to earth and very caring. she can let her emotions get to her, but is very strong.
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: Sabri-la on May 27, 2010, 05:37:52 AM

while she appears strong, she shows vulnerability and indeciciveness

The setting = time and place...
Time is 300 years from now.
Don't forget to mention Shay!
That would be fail.

Also, a character trait is that she doesn't think about her actions at all. for example, so is going so fast she misses the gap in the track and falls through.
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: Sabri-la on May 27, 2010, 10:14:50 PM
yeah and not to mention, she kinda FAILS at being a good friend
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: Shay-la-wa on May 29, 2010, 09:37:02 AM

Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: Sabri-la on May 29, 2010, 09:46:23 PM
i think shay needs to cut tally some slack though

...because Tally-wa has been manipulated and forced into operations her whole life?
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: hoverponies forever on May 29, 2010, 10:59:19 PM
So? Same thing with Shay.
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: danielle_wa on May 30, 2010, 02:34:13 PM
well she like blames her for the smoke being destroyed, when really she didnt know destroying the locket would cause special circumstances to come! and she hates her for taking david, but david liked tally much more then shay and tally cant help that! i always thought shay needed to be a little more understanding.
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: Mara-la on May 31, 2010, 01:30:41 AM
I can understand why Shay hates Tally in the first book, it makes sense, and yes, Shay should cut Tally some slack. After that though, Tally becomes a total jerk AND totally FAILS at being a good friend.
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: hoverponies forever on May 31, 2010, 02:07:47 AM
Shay needs to take away some slack. Tally is like a delinquent baby gone wrong.
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: Shay-la-wa on May 31, 2010, 03:12:49 AM
Yep.
Title: Re: HELP! Summative 4 Uglies!
Post by: danielle_wa on May 31, 2010, 07:14:00 AM
