Hey guys! I finished the sequel to Uglies: Pretties by Scott Westerfeld; so here’s the review for y’all 🙂
*Note: I’d recommend you read my “Uglies” review first. It’ll help you get a way better feel for the series and understand my synopsis a bit more, I wouldn’t want you to get lost and not want to read the book because of that.
My thoughts (no spoilers): I remember saying Uglies was fairly fast-paced but didn’t leave much of a long-lasting impression on me and Pretties is a little bit better than that. It too has a very gripping plot that made me unable to put it down but once I finished, aside from maybe an hour of that “returning to reality” feeling, I was fine. What this means is that it’s a really good plot but the emotional side of the book could be improved. Overall it’s a 4/5 stars from me, not unreal but a very good read nonetheless. In reference, I will definitely be reading the rest of the books but not necessarily crying over them.
Synopsis (a few minor spoilers that you can also get from reading the back cover): Tally is finally pretty. She now parties every day in New Pretty Town with her best friends and her biggest worry is whether she’ll pass the initiation to become a member of a Pretty clique. But one day, she gets a letter from her past that acts like the pulling of a plug. All of a sudden, her old memories are flowing in and she remembers the dark side of being pretty.
