"Pretties" is a continuation of the Uglies series where Tally Youngblood has now returned to the city and become a pretty (with the ultimate goal that she would be given the treatment as a test subject and hopefully be cured).

It's alright, but not one of my favorites. If I never hear anyone use the word "bubbly" again, I will be very, very happy. I feel like it got a little shallow and annoying, but maybe that is how Pretties are supposed to feel/describes Tally's new life well. It definitely improved towards the end, but I would still give it about 2.5 stars overall.
