Pretties By Scott Westerfeld
Published: November 1, 2005
Age Group: Young Adult
Publisher: Simon Pulse
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 inpormation survive.
Just like Uglies, Pretties starts out with a bang creating an addiction from the start. But this time its because you can't believe what is happening. Tally is a pretty, and she is happy about it! This made me so angry, yet addicted, and I had to keep reading.
My girly side also falls in love with Zane because he is a bubblehead (which makes him gorgeous) but yet he has an original and serious side to him. How could a girl ask for anything more in a man?
This book is thuroughly addicting, and constantly changing. Just when you think you know whats going to happen, something changes. I love the relationships they create in this book, although i thought one character, Fausto, wasn't explained very much. I love that Westerfeld turned around the entire image of bubbleheads, and gave them the potential to change things from how they have been for the past 300 years (with the help of Tally of course.)
Just like the last book, this one has a cliffhanger ending, forcing you (not that you will need any extra push) to read the next one.
Another great book, 4/5
