Uglies

There is a book called Uglies, it's set in a dystopian future centered around a female protagonist named Tally. At the age of 16 everyone in the host society undergoes a procedure/operation that makes them "pretty". Not only does it make them gorgeous, it also makes them dull and more controlled by the current government. Her best friend Shayla and the love interest Xandar both undergo the procedure before her because they were born first, leaving her alone. A band of rebels attack to help the community to realize the truth of the government's control. She runs away with one of the rebels named David to the uncultivated and untamed wild while they think of a plan to rescue her friends.
