A wide stretch of forest separating Uglyville from the suburbs in many cities. Littlies staying in the suburbs with their parents are discouraged from playing here, as it's unofficially reserved for uglies to play around and cause trouble in.
Shay's Cutters met here in the rain to have privacy from uglies and pretties alike. Ugly Dorms Edit All uglies have to live in dormitories, which are differentiated by colors.
These dorms are heavily monitored, primarily by drones and remote devices. Dorms are usually 4 stories high and include their own libraries and drama rooms. School Edit Classes are held separately from dorms, in various buildings on school grounds.
Although there are only 3 full years of schooling as classes essentially stop once students begin turning sixteen, ugly education is analogous to American high school. In Tally's city the art school is the tallest building in Uglyville.
The River Edit Tally's city is built on a river, which is dammed to provide water power. The river is also diverted to create the island New Pretty Town is built in, so that it serves as a semi natural moat. While pretties have artificial swimming pools, uglies have to swim in the river.
The water is clean, but inhabited by fish. Shay and Tally use swimming as an excuse to alter their body temperatures and take off their interface rings for a trick.Read Ch NEW PRETTY TOWN from the story Uglies by scottwesterfeld (Scott Westerfeld) with , reads.
