Prettiesby Scott Westerfeld
Out of Print
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"Pretties continues to ask questions about friendship and betrayal, while building one of the most fascinating worlds in recent SF. It pulls no punches, gives no easy answers, and ends with a shocking cliffhanger that will leave you counting the days until the final book." KLIATT
"Exciting plot with intriguing technology — part three is eagerly awaited." Kirkus Reviews
"Riveting and compulsively readable, this action-packed sequel does not disappoint. Just as good as its predecessor, it will leave fans breathlessly waiting for the trilogy's final volume." Booklist
The second book in the Uglies series focuses on Tally, who discovers that turning pretty comes with a terrible price. Now that she's been transformed and is pretty, she is perfectly happy with things as they are. Is there anything left of the old Tally?
