Anyone else notice that Ugly Shay's eyes were bigger than pretty Shay's?

I didn't like how the boys looked, the girls didn't bug me much.

Yes.  I hate the illustrations in that book, they're terrible.  The uglies and pretties don't look different enough, so what's the point of the book?  And I agree, ugly Shay was "prettier" than pretty Shay.
Well, guys, isn't that the point? We view the "uglies" as being prettier because they are more unique looking. While their Pretty versions, or Pretties in general were more homogenized and also became a bit of an exaggeration of the stereotypical hot people.
I think the illustrations were great because they also showed some of the underlying themes(such as what I pointed out). Like how Tally saw the magazine and said that our HOTTEST celebrities looked like UGLIES to her. So of course we find the Uglies more attractive because we identify them with our society better.

Oh I thought that surge tank was awful looking.  How could Tally tip it over if they're like that?
She might have been put in a smaller model. I don't think they make all surge tanks the same.

Or you know, Tally could have just lied about the size or even that she tipped it. I don't feel like she's a reliable  narrator :-\

EVERYTHING is possible, Luna. That's a motto I have for myself.

My motto is "Always expect the worst, that way when something doesn't go your way, you're not disappointed, and when something good happen, you get to be REALLY happy"
