day 4: series/trilogy

I love young adult literature and one of the best of the best is the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. This is dystopian literature, but not as dystopian as the Hunger Games series that is all the rage right now. (I simply can not stomach that plot.) This series is cautionary without being completely inhumane. I like how each book finds the main character in a distinctly different place in her culture's civilization. This allows the story to maintain continuity but also gives each book its own voice. It never, in short, felt like any book in the series was just a precursor to the next.
