Great sequel for the book Uglies. Love it can't wait till Specials. Really changes the plot in this book though I cringed at the near end for what she told David. Really have to read the first book to get this one though. must read.

Ok, I have to admit when i read the first one for the reading bowl i wasn't going ot read the rest of them. But after i got through with Uglies i changed my mind.

I was surprised and keep guessing through the whole thing! Just liek a good book should do.

Tally reunites with Shay, but is it the same? Finding the dark secerts of Prettyness shocked me. But i got more shocked in Specials.

Shay...no matter what they put in her head, she still remembers the jealosy and anger she felt for Tally. Will they ever be friends again? Nope, maybe somtimes, but not really.

Zane, i loved him. It made me sad that he got so messed up at the end.

All in all, great book!

I love this series! "Pretties" is the second in the wonderful series.

Read on as Tally finally gets her surgery to turn pretty, because she gave herself up so that she could help her good friend Shay. Now that Tally is pretty, will she remember what it was like to be ugly, or have the brain lesions taken over her brain to much?

I don't want to give to much away but this was a terrific book and I definitely suggest reading it! However, make sure to read the first in te series, "Uglies" before you start this one!

I have to admit, Pretties is my least favorite book of the series. And yet it's still one of the best books I've ever read. That must tell you how much I love the series!

The plot moved quickly and was quite absorbing, the characters were amazing - they really came to life for me - and I just love Scott Westerfeld's writing!

Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she is completely popular. It is everything she has ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun, the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom, is the nagging sense that something is wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what is 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 athorities do not intend to let anyone with this information survive.

The sequal to Scott Westerfeld's Uglies has finally come. The book is as good as good as the first. In this continuation of the series, Tally has agreed to test out an experimental drug that is said to cure the changes made to your brain durring the pretty operation. Tally is faced with the fear of the unknown, will she dare to take the risk of the new drug to save herself and her boyfriend?

The novel will be greatly enjoyed by science fiction fans, with its gadgetry and futuristic setting. Scott Westerfeld has once again asked provocative questions about the meaning of beauty, individuality, and bravery. You will be able to sink your teeth into this novel and read it for hours on end.

Tally is now pretty.  A beautiful girl with perfect hair, perfect teeth, and a perfect body.  However, there is actually something wrong with her.  Not just her, every person that has turned pretty due to the operation given to everyone after they turn 16.  They all have brain lesions.  After Tally meets someone and gets a letter in the mail and 2 pills to make the lesions go away, Tally takes them and soon starts feeling normal.  What will happen in the rest of "Pretties?"  One things for sure, it will be exciting!

I loved this book!  It gets the reader so involved, and I love the way its written.  It gives you a different view of the world and helps you see what we are like in a different way.  The characters are easy to get attached to you, and it is so adventerous that you feel like you are right there with them!  I definitly suggest this book!

This was interesting. Plus, it has a bonus point already for being
sequel. I guess my best way to describe it is like a roller coaster...
Up & down. Sometimes I couldn't breathe, and sometimes I wanted to
stop reading. Nevertheless, Westerfeld is an amazing writer. I loved
the way he manages to let you know with a completely different writing,
when the world -Tally's mind- is bubbly and when its bogus.

That
was what I liked the most, along with the way he mocks reality. It's
hard to think he is so right. Everything he says -about the actual
world- is now playing with my mind. In this
book, he doesn't focus so much in pretty/ugly issues, more in the
self-destructing predator and war-lover that the world today has
become. It is really amazing his point of view. That fact alone, makes
it an incredible reading.

I have mixed emotions about this
book. I fell he complicated things too much. But I did like it. I guess
I'm just heartbroken for David. And it is rare, when the reader doesn't
have a preference in the love-conflict (Yeah, by "the reader" I mean me).
I love them both!!! I can't decide! So, that makes the story and the
characters amazing. I thought for a moment we'd have three -Andrew- to
choose from. I'm glad that didn't happen (it would be interesting
huh?). The cover though, did not impress me. Its hard to top that first
one. It's an amazing book for fiction lovers.

In this sequel to Uglies, Tally has given herself up to the authorities to save Shay from losing her free will.  Maddy (davids mom) has found a cure to the lesions you get when you become pretty, but Shay refuses to be the guney pig to try the pills. So when Tally goes to get the pills hidden in garbo masion, Zane(the leader of the crims and tallys crush) comes along with her.  When Tally is afraid of taking the pills alone Zane said he'll take one with her, unfortunantly you need both pills otherwise the nanos in one of the pills eat away at you and you dont have the good nanos in the other pill to destroy those nanos(you follow me there? Basically ane took the pill that will eat at the lesions in his brain but when those are gone they'll eat at other things like his motor skills and Tally took the other pill wich is supposed to destroy the nanos that eat the lesions, so they did nothing for tally).  So now Tally, Zane, and the crims are off to the new smoke, by escaping by jumping out of the city limits with a hot air balloon. Tally lands off course onto a preserve where caveman live, and when she finnaly escapes and makes it to the new smoke only zanes there so ware are the other crims?

Pretties is another book by Scott Westerfeld and is a sequel to Uglies. Tally Youngblood is now a pretty and she has to face challenges that only she can end. Everyone is her town is a bubble head and is completely ditsy. Only Tally in New Pretty Town knows the secret of being pretty. It destroys your whole mind. She will do everything in her power to end this disease and save everyone she loves from complete mindlessness.
This book is as captivating as the first book in this series. It is so moving and wonderful that nothing can make you put down this book. The words of this book is also amazing and gives off so many details that you can imagine yourself right in the pages with the characters! :)
