"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.
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.
This book was not as great as i was expecting. I think i'll go crazy if i hear bubbly or bogus one more time. Other than that i do think this was a good middle to the series. The events seemed crazy and weird at first, but in the end they needed to happen. Overall an ok book in a great series.
