Book Review: Pretties

Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

SUMMARY: Gorgeous. Popular. Perfect. Perfectly wrong. 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. (from the back cover)

OPINION: I just finished this late last night, and I couldn't have timed it better since Marissa put up a post about Uglies this morning! I thought Uglies ended with a cliffhanger, but the ending of Pretties is just plain evil. How dare Scott Westerfeld keep us in suspense like this??!! I can't wait for May 9, when Specials comes out! From the first book, I like hoverboards and bungee jackes too. From this book, I want a flash tattoo that moves in time with my heartbeat. Totally bubbly and very pretty-making! This book kept me interested from beginning to end with action, strange discoveries, and convoluted plot twists. Read it ASAP.
