Nobody else can understand why Marilyn does not want to undergo "The Transformation", but the reason is this: by reading her deceased father's diaries and books (banned in that time), she comes to realize that when everyone is beautiful no one is because without ugliness there can be no beauty. That the leaders of society don't care whether people are beautiful or not, they just want everyone to be the same. In a fit of despair she eventually undergoes the procedure and loses her identity, as it is revealed "The Transformation" also alters a person's personality.
