Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she’s completely popular. It’s everything she’s ever wanted.
But beneath all the fun — the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom — is a nagging sense that something’s wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally’s ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what’s wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.
Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life — because the authorities don’t intend to let anyone with this information survive.
I can’t promise that there will not be any spoilers in this review…..actually there probably will be spoilers so if you have not read Uglies: read at your own risk!
Scott Westerfeld has most definitely done it again! I thought Uglies was action packed and intense but this one far surpassed it in it’s awesomeness. I was a little put off by the ending of Uglies and the beginning of Pretties. Did I really want to read about Tally as a dumb Pretty? But the author worked it all out perfectly.
Tally has most definitely grown in this book. She was strong and made some really hard choices. I was surprised at all the turns her life has taken from the first book. The development of Zane was a big bonus for me. Of course I liked David but I think I might like Zane more…..
This is a 5 star book for me but there was one little thing I was disappointed with. I kind of saw it coming but I still wasn’t trilled about it. I’m talking about the ending. I dislike that with every book it’s like we are starting over from scratch again. But I’m sure that that is very important to the series so I’m not going to whine too much.
Overall, Pretties was a awesome edition to the series. I read it all in one day. There was no way that I could leave this one unfinished to sleep! So if you made it all the way through that spoilery review and haven’t read this series: Go read them now!!!!
