Even assuming that "as a kid" means eighteen years old, and that you yourself are only eight years old (both of which seem like rather a stretch), it means that your father must have been no older than fifteen when you were born.  I really doubt he's read the same Uglies series we're familiar with as a kid.

Maybe he was a kid in spirit LOL, or maybe the as a kid part was accidently typed? Yeah probably not but who knows.

He meant like when he was twenty. And no, he was referring to this series. He knew who Tally and Shay are.

If he was twenty when it came out, he's approximately 25 or 26 now.  Which means, assuming he had you when he was eighteen (which is unusual...), you are roughly eight years old.
