Publisher's Summary

In Tally's world your 16th birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellant Ugly into a stunningly attractive Pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise, where your only job is having a really good time. Just before her birthday, Tally discovered that turning Pretty comes with a terrible price. She vowed to accept the operation but with the understanding that her friends on the outside would rescue her and let her be the guinea pig for the experimental and highly dangerous cure they're developing.

But in the second book of the Uglies series, Tally's Pretty. And everything's changed. The new, Pretty Tally is totally happy right where she is. She doesn't think she needs any kind of cure at all. When someone from her Ugly life shows up with a message, Tally has a hard time listening. Did she really promise to give all this up? Is she bound by a promise she made when she was a different person? If there is anything left of the old Tally, how will she fight her way out to keep her word and help her friends?

    "School required summer reading book"

    Good book...certain parts I found were unnecessarily lengthy and others were quite predictable but overall pretty well written. I'd recommend this book to ages 12-17.

    "Always a new twist!"

    As with the first book the narrator's voice is so expressive and she makes you want to keep listening. Also the story line continues on perfectly from the first book! If you liked Hunger Games or The Maze Runner series you will definitely like this. Start from the first book though so you can get the full background on what is happening. if you start with this book toy may not fully understand what is going on! Get this book and your won't be able to put it down!

    "Better than the first book"

    I was skeptical when I began this book as to whether I'd enjoy it but contrary to most sequels the second book is even better with a surprising twist at the end.

    "Loved it!"

    A great way to pass the time working. Love the story! When I read the book I wanted to throw it across the room. Now that I listen to it all I can do is turn it off instead when it gets frustrating.

    "Pretties"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The end made me want to keep listening, and go on to the next book. So that's good.


    What didn’t you like about Emily Tremaine’s performance?

    Her performance was monotone, but better


    Could you see Pretties being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think it would be a good TV series maybe better than the book.

    "Still good!"

    Great followup to the first book. The transition to Tally being pretty was good and I loved experiencing her growth. The triumph over the brain lesions, new adventures, and a love triangle make this book exciting! I only had one minor irritation. As with the first book, we hear over and over again how much the author cares about environmental issues. I GET it. I enjoyed the characters and thought they made sense with the exception of Mandy's irritation with Tally. What adult would be surprised that a teenager, and a brainless one at that, wouldn't quite understand the pills or would misuse them?

    Good narrator but not much difference between voices.

    Overall another great book, can't wait to start the next one!

    "Pretty Anazing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pretties to be better than the print version?

    I just finished this book. I listened to Uglies and Pretties in 3 days while on vacation. The narrator was amazing. Her voice was soothing and wonderful, with just enough difference for each character to keep it from getting boring. The storyline, of course, has always been unique. Becoming pretty by surgery at sixteen as a fact of life is insane. That everybody who didn't surge was considered ugly and crazy just seems unreal. The characters seem so real. Everybody has their own personality and just seems to become real inside your brain. If you are looking for a great new series, look no farther.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In Pretties, Zane was one of my favorites. He seemed so different and mysterious. A pretty with a brain.
