Contest: The Uglies Series (CLOSED)

A couple of weeks ago I received the first three books in Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series for review from Simon and Schuster as they have been reprinted in gorgeous new covers. As I already own the series I thought I'd give someone else a chance to win some of my favourite books.

Summary for Uglies: Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that?

Tally can't wait to turn sixteen and become Pretty. Sixteen is the magic number that brings a transformation from a repellent Ugly into a stunningly attractive Pretty, and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there. But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be Pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the Pretty world - and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn Pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

I couldn't figure out the Google Docs thing so I'm doing this the old fashioned way!
