I did uglies for a book group, and people really do judge each other by appearance in a big way.

^Same here. 0.0

Uglies really opened my eyes to a lot of things. One of the most important things to me is my mind- there's no way I'm going to let it get tampered with willingly. That's why I don't mess around with drugs, cause it damages the way I process things.

seriously you guys don't mess around with drugs.....LSD and pot are too of the ones I can really warn you about, I've seen first hand people messing up there lives and there sanity b/c of it.

which goes back to the very first post I posted on this thread...

If people believe that they SHOULD be pretty minded then they become pretty minded. Regardless of if they are or aren't.

It's a state of mind. We are what we think we should be. Tally thought she SHouldn't be acting this way, so she stopped. I think most people convience themselves that stupid is the new cool they actually become stupid. Weather they realise this or not.

It's a bit of a does the stereotype apply to the person, or does the person apply to the stereotype.

Ditto.

Go Ask Alice? Was it written as badly as they say?

Yeah. I do it, but I'm not proud of it.
You have to admit though, if someone comes up to you with stringy hair, grim all over their face, and armpit stains then you're going to think, yeah, not someone I really wanna be around. As shallow as that sounds.

Go Ask Alice is really moving. The ending doesn't make sense, but it's really well written, if you don't mind swears.

Yeah. I never did get to finish it though (partly I got bored, partly Catching Fire was calling my name, and partly my mom found out and got reaally mad)
