Synopsis

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?

I liked it alot because i thought that the author had really done a great job making tallys personaity pretty after being ugly, and it still sounded like the old tally even though there were some new aspect mentally and definetly physically.

This series is captivating in its exploration of a society where physical beauty is no longer a marker of wealth and sucess. It helps young readers see beyond the shallow judgements that can be made about looks. They can begin to explore the things that really matter in society, like who is in charge and why.

This was my favorite book of the series. It was more light hearted then the others and added humor when they were "bubbleheads". I also enjoyed the added romance factor, this part of the series had something for everyone. Their society was a bit strange and the way they refer to us as "rusties" was interesting. The author was not shy to show her opinions of what our society is doing wrong and offering some very creative ways to fix our "rusty" problems. Although I considered a light fun read it also made you think of the way our society is run and how it will evolve in the future.

I feel like this book could of been something more... It has a great storyline the characters I enjoy, but I feel it has been dumbed down a lot. Not necessarily a bad thing but I don't feel it's great either. Would be a good introduction to dystopian novels which have become a recent favourite of mine.
